Sebastian Vettel has knocked back an invitation from Nico Rosberg to visit the Mercedes garage this weekend, fearing a PR stunt.
Rosberg and Vettel became involved in a spat during the post-Australian Grand Prix press conference which resulted in the Ferrari driver suggesting Mercedes should open up their garage at the Sepang International Circuit for an inspection of their cars in the wake of a dominant display at Melbourne's Albert Park.
Rosberg then invited Vettel, with the latter suggesting the debrief in the engineers' room for his visit.
Vettel has now knocked back any chance of a visit: "When I was joking with Nico in the press conference the deal was the invite was for all the paddock. Now it seems the invite has shrunk to just me.
"Initially I think it was called off by Niki (Lauda, Mercedes non-executive director) and Toto (Wolff, Mercedes motorsport boss).
"Now they've told (Rosberg) yes, so I think they are using it as a bit more of a PR thing rather than a proper invite, so the answer is no I won't be going."
