Red Bull Considering a Mercedes-Like Tire Test

Vettel 2013

Red Bull Racing is not ruling out following Mercedes’ lead and conducting a private test with Formula One tire supplier Pirelli.

Mercedes and Pirelli were reprimanded by the FIA recently, after news of their “secret” 1000 km test at Barcelona with a 2013 car took the paddock by surprise. But F1’s governing body did not ban that sort of tire testing altogether, although insisting that strict guidelines be followed in future. Ferrari, albeit with a two-year-old car, has also tested with Pirelli in 2013, and so Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said the reigning world champions could be next in line.
