Red Bull to 'move on' after losing appeal

Red Bull lost the appeal for the Melbourne DQ of Daniel Ricciardo.

Apr.15 (GMM) Red Bull has lost its appeal against Daniel Ricciardo's Melbourne disqualification.

Following Monday's hearing in Paris, the FIA announced on Tuesday morning that the judges "decided to uphold the decision" to exclude Ricciardo's car for exceeding the maximum allowed flow of fuel.

Red Bull argued that the FIA-homologated sensor was faulty.

The FIA did not, however, accept title rival Mercedes' submission that Red Bull should be further penalised in order to deter the team from committing similar breaches.

A full explanation of Tuesday's decision will be published later this week.

In a media statement, Red Bull said it "accepts" the court's decision, even if the reigning world champions are "disappointed".

"(The team) would not have appealed if we didn't think we had a very strong case," Red Bull added.

"We will now move on from this and concentrate on this weekend's Chinese Grand Prix."
