Monaco: The latest row engulfing Formula One could end up going before another hearing after Red Bull and Ferrari launched official protests against Mercedes, alleging the team breached rules by conducting in-season tire testing with manufacturer Pirelli following the Spanish Grand Prix two weeks ago.
The three teams and Pirelli answered questions from stewards following the Monaco GP on Sunday, which was won from pole position by Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg ahead of Red Bull pair Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber. Following the hearing, motor sport's governing body said in a statement that "the stewards (present) will write a report to the FIA who may bring the matter before the International Tribunal."
The FIA gave no further details when this might happen. The next race is in two weeks' time in Canada. In a further statement, the FIA warned Mercedes over its conduct and said its tribunal "may decide to inflict penalties that would supercede any penalty the stewards of the meeting may have issued."
