Ricciardo hit with grid penalty

NEWS STORY
09/11/2018

Having claimed two weeks ago in Mexico that his car was cursed, things don't appear to have improved for Daniel Ricciardo in the interim.

In the wake of his retirement from the Mexico City event, just a handful of laps from the end, Red Bull has opted to change the turbocharger on his car.

As a result, the Australian, who has retired from four of the seven races held since the summer break, will head into tomorrow's qualifying session aware that he face a 5-place grid drop.

Despite his retirement in Mexico, the popular Australian took a sensational pole, out-pacing his teammate who had dominated all three practice sessions.

"Given that the turbo being scrap was caused by the fire marshall spraying loads of extinguishant into it, I would have thought RB would have a case to at least get the penalty reduced, if not removed."

"To be fair I read that the problem in Mexico turned out to be with the clutch, so not a Renault fault. It does seem strange that Red Bull get the majority of the Renault problems though."
