Rosberg: Mercedes gained nothing

Rosberg: Mercedes gained nothing

Nico Rosberg is insisting Mercedes gained nothing from their Pirelli test, which will see the team hauled before the FIA's International Tribunal.

Mercedes spent three days testing with Pirelli the wake of the Spanish Grand Prix, covering 1000km at the Circuit de Catalunya.

But while the testing is not an issue, using this year's car is. And that's what Mercedes did.

The team ran their current W04 during the three-day outing and went on to win the next race, the Monaco Grand Prix.

Rosberg, however, insists the test did not help Mercedes in any way.

"It was a full on Pirelli test - they dictate what we do," the 27-year-old told Sky Sports News.

"We have no say whatsoever - they say you are doing that, that, that and that and the engineers that they have run our programme.

"So it is not for us to learn anything or to decide on anything that we do."

The German, though, is adamant he won't let the off-track issues distract him from the job at hand.

"Not at all, the team is handling it and I am fully focussed on what I am doing, it has had no impact on me.

"I have no noticed anything different in the preparations. I know the team are working closely with the FIA to get through it quickly."
