  • Australian Grand Prix 2018 driver Daniel Ricciardo

Ricciardo is nevertheless positive about his chances of being in the mix on Sunday and issued a warning to drivers who get in his way.

Sky F1's Ted Kravitz was among those to criticise the stewards' verdict, tweeting: "Talk about not seeing the bigger picture: The red flag was for a loose wire on the startline, not a crash, and Ricciardo wasn't going to drive over it anyway as was coming into pits".

Red Bull have said they want him to stay but champions Mercedes and Ferrari, the sport's most successful teams, both have drivers whose contracts expire at the end of 2018.

Expanding further to Sky Sports, Ricciardo added: "I can agree with everyone that there's other penalties they could have used".

Ricciardo tried to vent his frustration in Saturday's final practice before qualifying but could only manage sixth fastest at a wet Albert Park. In the last part of Q3 we just missed a bit in the first sector, I'm not totally sure where the time is so we'll have to look at that.

Red Bull boss Horner admitted he had never seen five-time grand prix victor Ricciardo angry before until Friday night but believed it could be a good omen.

Ricciardo, who was tipped as a contender for the win at Albert Park, felt wronged.

Judge rules 'Apprentice' contestant's lawsuit against Trump may proceed
Zervos then sued Trump, arguing that Trump painting her as a liar harmed her business and her personal reputation. The decision may also complicate Trump's effort to dismiss allegations from various women about his behavior.

Formula One world champions Mercedes chose to use pre-season testing in Spain this month to build bullet-proof reliability into their new W09 chassis, eschewing the temptation of chasing headline-grabbing times and leaving open the question of whether Formula One's fastest were faster.

After reviewing video and data evidence and speaking to Ricciardo himself, the stewards decided that he was in breach of regulations.

Wherever Ricciardo lands - and there are compelling arguments for him to return to Melbourne in 12 months' time in any one of the sport's three standout teams - it will be much harder to keep a secret this time.

"However, he admitted an error in reading his dash and was slightly below the minimum time", the decision report also said.

Stewards said the penalty was lessened as Ricciardo had slowed to a degree, and no "danger was created".

"The stewards therefore are imposing a lesser penalty than usual".
