Red Bull are poised to launch a second protest against Mercedes if they use their dual-axis steering system (DAS) at the season opener in Melbourne.

Mercedes introduced the innovative system during pre-season testing.

However, it isn’t clear is exactly when they plan to use it. When that moment comes, it appears Red Bull will be on hand to officially protest the system in order for the FIA to further scrutinise and provide more clarification on the device.

“For us, the system does not comply with the rules,” Marko told

“So we will protest when Mercedes uses the system in Melbourne.”
