Ferrari wants in-season Pirelli tyre test – Domenicali

Published

Ferrari F1 team Principal Stefano Domenicali says that they wants in-season Pirelli tyre test if this is possible like Mercedes secret test.

New controversy grow-up in F1 paddock during the Monaco Grand Prix that Mercedes did ‘secret’ 1,000km Pirelli tyre test in Barcelona.

Ferrari and Red Bull Racing are both start on protesting against Mercedes, but Formula 1 official tyre supplier Pirelli claims that agreement permit them to test with one team at their decision.

In-season testing is banned. Fuming Red Bull and Ferrari are both protesting, while Pirelli claim their contract allows them to test with one team at their discretion.

Also Ferrari is adamant that any test with an existing car is illegal, but if it isn’t then the Italian team is only too happy to participate.

“We just want to know if this is possible, If this is possible we’d be the first to raise our hands to make sure that we can do the same, because as you know Ferrari has been very pushy to try and do in-season testing on the track, and this is the reason why we wanted to understand this situation, no more than that. said Domenicali.

“And if the decision can be opposite on what we believe, it’s the right interpretation of course on our side, then we will need to react immediately and ask for this to happen I would say as soon as technically we can do something.

“Since two years I think it’s clear that Pirelli, in order to do some testing, was asking for all the teams to do some running. But for us it’s very clear that we cannot do that with the actual car, and that’s why basically even if they didn’t formally ask us, we believe that it’s not possible to do it. Because otherwise, as I said, we’d be the first to be there in pole position.”

“That’s difficult to say to be honest. For sure three days have helped them, because otherwise you don’t do a test. But to say that this was an immediate effect I would say something that I don’t know, because I don’t know what they did, I don’t know who was there, I don’t know anything more than what is on air I would say. I would be too superficial and I don’t want to be.”

The regulation of which Domenicali talks – 22.1 in the 2013 Sporting Regulations – states: ‘Track testing shall be considered any track running time not part of an Event undertaken by a competitor entered in the Championship, using cars which conform substantially with the current Formula One Technical Regulations in addition to those from the previous or subsequent year. The only exception is that each competitor is permitted up to eight promotional events, carried out using tyres provided specifically for this purpose by the appointed supplier, to a maximum distance of 100kms per event.’
