Ricciardo 'still feeling good'

Ricciardo 'still feeling good'

Daniel Ricciardo is keeping his chin up despite his exclusion from the Australian Grand Prix results.

After finishing second behind Nico Rosberg from Mercedes at Albert Park on Sunday, the day turned into a bittersweet one for the Australian as the stewards excluded him from the results as his RB10's fuel flow sensors was found to have been "consistently in excess" of the permitted 100kg per hour.

Red Bull are set to appeal against the decision, but Ricciardo remains proud of his performance in Melbourne and is refusing to get downbeat.

"I still feel obviously really good about what I did. It doesn't change much," he told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"But obviously it would be nice to get the 18 points. I still stood there (on the podium) and that was a great feeling."

Red Bull have until Thursday to lodge an appeal and there have been suggestions that it could take a few weeks before the World Motor Sport Council makes a ruling.

"It's not possible to say when it will be heard," an FIA source told the paper. "It depends on how quickly both parties can prepare their cases. There is no set timetable but it will most likely be heard in Paris (home of the FIA is headquarters)."

Ricciardo, meanwhile, is not ready to think about the appeal just yet.

"We'll see what happens. I'm not really in a mindspace to talk about it right now," he said.
