Red Bull’s appeal against the exclusion of Daniel Ricciardo from the Australian GP is based on the team believing that the rules do not specify that fuel flow has to be measured by the FIA-mandated sensor.

Team boss Christian Horner says that the team’s own readings proved that Ricciardo did not exceed the 100kg/h limit, which is why the team ignored instructions from the FIA to adjust the flow.
