Monaco GP: Mercedes tyre protest no threat to Nico Rosberg's win

Nico Rosberg's victory in the Monaco Grand Prix is safe - despite the ongoing discussions regarding a protest about his Mercedes team's secret tyre test.
Mercedes was engulfed in controversy ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix when rivals Red Bull and Ferrari lodged protests about a test the team conducted for Pirelli with its 2013 car at Barcelona last week.
Stewards met with representatives of all the teams involved in the matter, as well as Pirelli, after the race on Sunday night to work out whether or not a regulatory breach had taken place.
But although the outcome of that matter has yet to be decided, the FIA made the results of the Monaco GP official - meaning Rosberg's victory cannot now be overturned.
One potential outcome is that the Monaco GP stewards will decide that they are not qualified enough to rule on the matter, and it gets deferred to the next meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council.
