Mercedes wants in on fourth day of Silverstone test 4 July, 2013 The FIA has opened the door to the forthcoming Silverstone test possibly being extended from three to four days, and Mercedes, banned from the test as a result of their role in ‘test-gate’, has accepted that it will not be allowed to run for the originally-scheduled three days. However director Toto Wolff hinted the German team will push to attend, if the test is extended to a fourth day. “Now we’re being punished more, because the other teams can use their proper drivers, but we accept it for the purposes of safety.” “But if there is a fourth test day, we will fight to have this day,” he revealed to Germany’s Bild newspaper.
