It was, at least as I understand it, a VERY blatant disregard of the regs.
Calling Mercedes' actions "blatant" may understate the case. I think the Mercedes people's big miscalculation was in thinking they could keep the tests secret. I became satisfied of that when I saw that they had Hamilton and Rosberg wear plain helmets rather that their own during the tests. The team's excuse offered at the hearing, that the plain helmets were to protect the drivers from fans, was less than lame. Come on, I may have been born at night but it wasn't last night.
