Red Bull appeals Ricciardo's disqualification

AP - Sports

PARIS (AP) -- Formula One team Red Bull has officially appealed to motor sport's governing body over Daniel Ricciardo's disqualification from last weekend's season-opening Australian Grand Prix.

The Australian driver thrilled the home crowd with a second-place finish behind German winner Nico Rosberg to secure what looked like his first career podium on his debut for Red Bull, where he replaced veteran driver Mark Webber during the offseason.

However, he was stripped of the result due to a technical breach. Race stewards said his car violated fuel-flow rules introduced this year which limit cars to 100 kilograms of fuel during the race.

The FIA subsequently disqualified Ricciardo, elevating McLaren drivers Kevin Magnussen and Jenson Button to second and third, respectively.
