Team boss Christian Horner praised the FIA's Charlie Whiting on Friday as he clashed with his McLaren counterpart Martin Whitmarsh, when it emerged that Renault-powered teams had been allowed an exception to the 10pc clampdown.

But it was Whitmarsh who was smirking on the Silverstone pitwall a day later, with Horner and Adrian Newey storming out of a meeting with Whiting in the wake of a further technical directive issued shortly before Saturday practice.

"I'm not going to say anything," Horner told BBC Sport.
