Mercedes reprimanded for Rosberg incident

Mercedes has been given an official reprimand for using covers on Nico Rosberg's car after it stopped in track in British Grand Prix practice.

The German's W06 was hidden under covers when it was returned to the pits – which is in breach of the regulations because there had been no accident damage.

The team was summoned to see the stewards before second free practice to explain what happened, and it was decided that a breach of the rules had been committed.

A statement issued by the FIA said that the team would be given a reprimand.
