According to German reports, Neale said Ferrari - a strong opponent of F1's now tight test restrictions - has found four allies that will vote in favour of relaxing the ban.

"Of course if you have a track in your back yard and the equipment, you want to open the garage and send out a driver," he reportedly said.

Neale made clear that McLaren opposes the move, insisting there were "very good reasons" for introducing the ban several years ago for mainly financial reasons.

"Those circumstances have not changed," he added.
