"Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo has been excluded from the Australian Grand Prix after breaching fuel consumption rules. The Australian, 24, crossed the line second, behind race winner Nico Rosberg of Mercedes in Melbourne. The sport's governing body, the FIA, have installed a fuel-flow sensor in each car to ensure teams do not exceed the maximum fuel-flow rate of 100kg/h."

The stewards found that Ricciardo's car exceeded the rate "consistently". Red Bull say they will appeal.
McLaren's Kevin Magnussen has been promoted to second with his team-mate Jenson Button moving up to third.
Red Bull said in a statement: "Inconsistencies with the FIA fuel flow meter have been prevalent all weekend up and down the pit lane."The team and [engine supplier] Renault are confident the fuel supplied to the engine is in full compliance with the regulations."

Ricciardo's podium would have been the first of his career and came on his debut with Red Bull.
The Australian replaced Mark Webber following promotion from the outfit's junior team Toro Rosso.

The sport has introduced a host of new rules this season, including a limit of no more than 100kg for a race distance and a maximum fuel-flow rate.

Teams were warned before the race that violations would lead to disqualifications.

FIA technical delegate Jo Bauer said in a statement: "During the race, car number three [Ricciardo] has exceeded consistently the maximum allowed fuel-flow of 100kg/h.

"This is not in compliance with Formula 1 regulations."

Do you think Ricciardo will bounce back from this?

Insane first couple of laps, shame that he got DSQ as I personally think he deserved it... may not be the only one to be investigated: https://www.facebook.com/Loosewheelnut/photos/a.401234903290248.93314.401220693291669/619536961460040/?type=1&theater
