Christian Horner re-affirmed his dissatisfaction with the verdict and sentence delivered to Mercedes, for their role in the ‘tyre-gate’ test, by the FIA tribunal in Paris.

Speaking during the FIA press conference, on Friday, at Silverstone Horner commented.

“The penalty they applied? I have to be a bit careful because he’s bigger than I am, sitting next to me!,” said the Red Bull boss with reference to Ross Brawn who sat next to him on the interviewee panel.

Adding, “Possibly it was a bit soft but, you know, it was a fair process and it was certainly interesting to see how it panned out. I think the biggest thing to come out of it is clarity.”

“I’m bound to disagree with Christian,” retorted Brawn. (GP247)
