Brackley-based Mercedes have been banned from the young driver test and reprimanded for taking part in a controversial Pirelli tyre test.

An FIA tribunal found Mercedes, who are currently third in the 2013 Constructors’ World Championship standings, in breach of F1’s rules and an article bringing the sport into disrepute.

The young driver test runs for three days at Silverstone from July 17-19.
