F1: Daniel Ricciardo will not be in Paris for Melbourne appeal

Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo has confirmed he will not there to see his team trying to overturn the stewards’ decision to exclude him from the Australian Grand Prix.

The 24-year-old finished second on the track in Melbourne a month ago, but was disqualified after the race over fuel flow issues.

Red Bull appealed the decision, and the hearing is tomorrow, in Paris. Meanwhile, Ricciardo will be getting ready for next week’s Chinese Grand Prix, in Shanghai.

“I’ll obviously wait to hear the result from the team, I’m sure they’ll give me a call,” Ricciardo told Crash.net.

“There’s nothing that I can do, there’s nothing that I can really worry about. As far as I’m concerned let’s say the damage was done on Sunday night in Melbourne. I’m not going to be any more upset than I was then.

“Obviously I would love to get them back; I would be pleased but in a way I’ve sort of dealt with it now and whatever happens, happens.”
