The stewards of the Monaco Grand Prix have referred Ferrari and Red Bull’s protest against Mercedes to the FIA.
Mercedes’ rivals believe they broke the sporting regulations by conducting a three-day tyre test for Pirelli in the week following the Spanish Grand Prix.
The stewards issued the following statement:
“The Stewards of the Monaco Grand Prix received protests from Infiniti Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Ferrari concerning an alleged breach of Article 22.4 h) (Track and Wind Tunnel Testing) of the FIA Formula One Sporting regulations by Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team.
“The stewards summoned representatives of the protesting teams, Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team and Pirelli.
“After hearing and collecting information the stewards will write a report to the FIA who may bring the matter before the International Tribunal.”
The stewards have official classified the results of the Monaco Grand Prix, meaning any future decision will not affect the result of today’s race.
