FIA: Red Bull did not cheat

Shanghai: Red Bull did not deliberately cheat new fuel regulations in the Australian Grand Prix, their appeal hearing has said. The team were told to pay the costs for the case against Daniel Ricciardo’s disqualification.

The full judgement of the FIA’s International Court of Appeal found the team were not “fraudulent” in their breach of the fuel-flow rules, but added that the team failed to prove they did not exceed the limit on the Australian’s car.

“Considering the technical issues at stake and the fact that this was the first official race under this new technology, the court does not find that the appellant’s attitude in Australia was fraudulent,” the FIA international court of appeal added.
