Rosberg's W06 under investigation
Nico Rosberg has edged past his team mate Lewis Hamilton to emerge as the fastest driver in the first practice at the British Grand Prix on Friday.

The German overcame Lewis Hamilton’s time by just 0.07 seconds despite losing much of the session on account of loss of hydraulic pressure.

During the opening practice session, Rosberg stopped on track after he exited Copse corner with a loss of hydraulic pressure and a recovery truck was dispatched to collect the car.

His car was brought back to the pits after which news broke that Mercedes are under investigation as they had covered up the rear, which is against the rules.

“During P1 at 10:28 members of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team covered the underside, rear diffuser area and the front wing of car number 06 when it was brought back to the paddock after it having stopped on the circuit due to a mechanical problem,” read a report from FIA technical delegate Jo Bauer.

“As the car hasn’t suffered any kind of accident damage this in my opinion is a breach of Article 27.4 of the 2015 Formula One Sporting Regulations and I am referring this matter to the stewards for their consideration.
