Daniel Ricciardo hit with PENALTY at Australian Grand Prix: Stewards explain why

F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo hopes to end his Australia curse Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo given three-place grid for the Australian Grand Prix

The Australian was penalised for not staying above the minimum time set by the FIA ECU under the red flag during Friday's second session which was brought about when a piece of wire used by the timing system fell on to the track.

Mercedes gun Hamilton is clearly wary of Red Bull's Ricciardo after seeing him flash his impressive grin a great deal at Albert Park ahead of Friday's practice.

Stewards acknowledged Ricciardo had "slowed down significantly" and "proceeded with due care", but the decision was still taken to penalise the Australian with a three-place penalty.

Arriving at a wet Albert Park circuit on Saturday, Daniel Ricciardo said he's "pissed" about his grid penalty as common sense should have prevailed.

"It's obviously not a fast vehicle so I think Dad kept that in mind as well, that it was going to keep me out of trouble for my youth years of getting my license and all that".

At Mercedes, which has won 63 of the 79 races since F1 dumped normally aspirated V8 engines for V6 turbo hybrid power plants in 2014, Hamilton's teammate Valtteri Bottas has been retained for 2018 after a debut season with the team a year ago that produced three wins, but a third-place finish in the drivers' championship behind Vettel in a auto demonstrably better than the Ferrari.

"We're obviously better than eighth, so we will try and make it happen".

A frustrated Daniel Ricciardo condemned Formula One stewards at the Australian Grand Prix after the Red Bull driver was handed a three-place grid penalty for his home race on Sunday. It looked like it was all in the first sector. Under a red flag, Ricciardo has been penalized for going too slowly, and this only gets more ridiculous after reading the FIA definition of what drivers should do under a red flag situation. "Yes, for sure it was frustrating a little bit". "They could give me a reprimand, they could give me a fine, I don't care, just don't rob me of a front-row start". "You could see from the wording of the statement that they tried to water it down as best they could".

In 2016, Ricciardo set the fastest lap but couldn't secure a podium finish in front of his home fans. But I think even him at 90 percent with that package that they had today, he still would've got pole. "It's still eating him up and he's still pretty revved up about it".

As is tradition, the Australian Grand Prix will be the stage for the opening race of the new Formula One season.
