Paris: Red Bull's appeal against Daniel Ricciardo's disqualification from second place in the Australian Grand Prix will be heard on April 14, motorsport's governing body the FIA said on Friday. The appeal will be heard at the FIA's Paris headquarters by the body's international court of appeal.

Red Bull had made it plain ever since Ricciardo lost his his runner-up spot to Nico Rosberg in the Melbourne stewards room on a technical infringement that they would challenge the ruling. "Despite the eventual outcome in Melbourne, I still feel really good about my performance in the race and throughout the weekend," said Ricciardo on Friday.

"Obviously it would be nice to get the 18 points, but I'm happy that I still stood on the podium and that was a great feeling. I know I did a good job and I can take that with me to the next race in Malaysia."
