    Monaco

    What a crap race. Stop start stop start, stop again and start for a bit. It's more like a procession with crashes.

    Mercedes to be investigated after Ferrari & Red Bull tyre test protest

    Mercedes face an investigation by Formula 1's governing body the FIA after being accused of taking part in an illegal tyre test.

    Red Bull and Ferrari lodged an official protest at the Monaco Grand Prix after discovering tyre supplier Pirelli used Mercedes to do a three-day test.

    In-season testing in F1 is forbidden. Pirelli says it has a contract with the FIA allowing limited testing.


    But Red Bull and Ferrari say the rules state this must only be with a car that is at least two years old. Mercedes used their 2013 car.


    Rival teams were not informed about the test, which not only involved Mercedes' 2013 car but also race drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton.
