FIA upholds Ricciardo disqualification

Red Bull has lost its appeal against Daniel Ricciardo’s disqualification from the Australian Grand Prix following Monday’s hearing at the FIA Court of Appeal in Paris.

After convening on Monday the FIA promised a decision the following day, and issued a statement on Tuesday morning on its website. Ricciardo crossed the line in second at Albert Park but was disqualified five hours later, after it was found his car had breached fuel-flow regulations.
