  • F1 2013 – FIA Tribunal: Mercedes verdict revealed

    Formula One News » F1 2013 – FIA Tribunal: Mercedes verdict revealed

    The FIA tribunal has come to a close in Paris today with Mercedes being “reprimanded” and banned from the young driver test.

    Pirelli have also received a reprimand.

    The FIA said that Mercedes has been found guilty for a breach of regulations and as a punishment will miss the 3 day young driver test.

    Throughout the tribunal Mercedes argued that it was Pirelli carrying out the test and that they decided the terms and structure, it was inevitable that they would gain some data from the test but all data has been stored securely away.

    It was Mercedes legal team who put forward that if found guilty Mercedes should receive a band form the young driver test.

    “[The young driver test] is a three-day test, and it is a car test over which teams have full control and teams know everything about the tyres and cars.

    “If we are in this territory then it is open to the International Tribunal to impose exclusions from events that are under FIA jurisdiction, and the young driver test is that.”

    The verdict in full:

    ‘On 5 June 2013, further to protests lodged during the 2013 Monaco GP by Red Bull Racing and Ferrari Scuderia Team against cars n°9 and 10 (Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team) for having conducted with Pirelli a three day tyre testing using a 2013 car on 15, 16 and 17 May in Barcelona, the President of the FIA, acting as the FIA Prosecuting Body, sent to the President of the International Tribunal a notification of charges against Pirelli and a notification of charges against Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team.

    ‘On 5 June 2013, Pirelli and Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team have been convened by the President of the International Tribunal to appear before a judging panel of the International Tribunal.

    ‘Decision of the International Tribunal

    ‘The Tribunal, after having heard the parties and examined their submissions, decided that:

    ‘Mercedes be reprimanded;

    Mercedes be suspended from participating in the forthcoming “three day young driver training test”;

    Pirelli be reprimanded. and rejected all other and further conclusions.

    ‘he International Tribunal was presided over by Mr Edwin GLASGOW QC (Great Britain), and included Mr Christy HARRIS (United States), Mr Patrick RAEDERSDORF (Switzerland) and Mr Anthony SCOTT ANDREWS (Great Britain).’

      Oooh, a reprimand and exclusion from a meaningless event… what a blow. An obviously cowed sanction by the organization driving F1 into the ground like a dart. Whatever…

      This is all hogwash.

      What? a measly “reprimand”. Whats a bet while the 3 day young drivers test is underway that Mercedes will be doing their very own
      test.

      This is a farce.

      Money talks

      Bullshit walks

      I will never support Mercedes now

      What a fudge, the big guys get away with cheating,and nothing will change my mind that the Mercedes win was a direct result of the tests.
      What punishment penalise young drivers,like slapping the baby for dads speeding,FI Sucks its a sham.

      Mercedes means a lot; very best, perfection. etc. Moreover, Mercedes name, stands for quality, performance, and innovation at the highest level. For a company with such high standards, being involved in such mediocre scandal is shocking. If I would be Mercedes I would take a closer look to what BMW did. Stay in sport as long as you can project and most importantly improve your image; not damage it.
