Let us recall that Mercedes tested Pirelli tires with this year's car, which caused an avalanche of outrage in the world of Formula One. In addition to the Germans, the Italians also tested Ferrari, which tested the new Pirelli tires immediately after the race in Bahrain with Corse Clienti cars (2011 cars). Mercedes' action is definitely a violation, as they tested with this year's car, and Italians say: "Article 22 of the sports rules prohibits the use of current and last year's car for any testing during the season."
The FIA (International Automobile Federation) asked both teams for an explanation. At Mercedes, they somehow fell silent, as they obviously can't find the right excuse (they only care that the FIA has ratified their tests, and according to the rules, all other teams should agree, which should also be able to test tires. ), And Ferrari is linked to the aforementioned Article 22 of the Sporting Code. Toto Wolff told the media before the silence only: "Communication with the media at this moment is just digging your own pit."
