Red Bull look to overturn Ricciardo penalty

PARIS (AFP) - World champions Red Bull believe they can overturn Daniel Ricciardo's Australian Grand Prix disqualification on Monday and reinvigorate their 2014 challenge.

The FIA's International Court of Appeal will meet in Paris to decide whether or not to reinstate Ricciardo's second-place finish in Melbourne.

He was stripped of his place after the team were found guilty of breaching fuel flow regulations.

A reinstatement would be worth 18 points which would lift the driver into third spot in the championship, albeit 31 points behind leader Nico Rosberg and 20 back from the German's Mercedes teammate, Lewis Hamilton.
