    don't worry, Grosjean is down in 13th, so if he does crash it won't affect the leaders.

    Good point , hoping for a Mercedes 1-2 with Alonso in third, i can also see Massa getting into the points on a one stop stratergy with an aid of a safety car at some point in the race.

    One of the Mercedes driver's are gonna be off the podium.

    I've got a bet on either of them to win the race so I desperately need either Rosberg or Hammy to take the chequered flag.

    according to Mercedes the FIA signed off on it, so the FIA can hardly punish them for doing something they themselves signed off on can they? would be mad...

    apparently Mercedes are saying another team did a similar test for Pirelli earlier in the season as well...

    is it really that surprising that Pirelli ask teams/drivers to test tyres given the situation? I don't think it is really tbh.
    Perhaps, but it should be done openly, the way the tyre situation is unfolding this season is so farcical.

    Yeah I guess there's no way of punishing them, though I wouldn't put it past the FIA...

    according to Ross Brawn on SSF1; Mercedes were approached by Pirelli to do a blind tyre test (they didn't know what tyres were being used even), they ran this past the FIA who green lighted them to do it, they then did it after the race in Spain, indeed they were setting up for it when other teams were still there...

    to my mind this is just Red Bull trying to create a scandal where none exists because they can use it to mess with Mercedes heads and potentially gain an advantage through that and also allows them to put more pressure on Pirelli...

    Tbh, if what's being said in the media is true, that is Mercedes asked and were given permission by the FIA, then I don't see the point of protesting. Mercedes aren't going to be penalised for doing something they were given permission to do. Actually, I reckon this just RBR getting this out into the media so that people know what happened.

    Fernando.

    I think Ferrari will be bold with strategy and may just be able to leapfrog the Mercs in the pit stops.

    whichever Mercedes starts best will make the podium, Vettel or Webber will win, the other Mercedes about 6th behind Alonso and Kimi.

    DiResta to one stop and move up the grid a lot as well I reckon

    Rosberg win and then a red bull and kimi 3rd. Kimi's always finished higher than where it starts.

    I doubt it...it's almost impossible to overtake here and Lewis will defend hard...

    all down to pit stops today.
