Paul Harris QC in Formula 1 ‘Testgate’ hearing

20 Jun 2013 | by Caroline Sweeney

Paul Harris QC appears before the FIA’s International Tribunal today regarding an F1 tyre test in which Mercedes have been accused of breaking Formula 1’s rules prohibiting competitors entered in the Championship from running its current contender during in-season testing.

The FIA claims that Mercedes and Pirelli were never granted official permission by the governing body to conduct a three-day, 1,000 km tyre test last month at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona.

Paul Harris QC, acting on behalf of Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix, has rejected the FIA’s claim.
