A furious Red Bull, who are unhappy with the punishment handed to Mercedes have revealed they could boycott the young driver test and even set up a private test of their own, similar to Mercedes, which would breach the rules.
The Times newspaper reports that ‘Red Bull are threatening to take the law into their own hands as a direct challenge to the authority of the FIA, the governing body, and Jean Todt’
‘’Red Bull executives are considering boycotting the Young Drivers’ Test to set up their own private session in a mirror of the Mercedes case. A private test would breach the FIA rulebook but Red Bull are said to have told [F1 chief executive Bernie] Ecclestone that they would take the risk of a reprimand – the punishment meted out to Mercedes – for the benefit of three days of testing.’
