Ricciardo out of Australian Grand Prix

What the Melbourne race and Ricciardo got instead was nothing but ill fortune.

But Ricciardo didn't even take his spot on the grid as an electronic sensor issue saw the auto get stuck in sixth gear on the outlap, where the drivers come out of the pits and circulate once to take up their grid positions.

"Sorry mate. auto is done".

To the cheers of the Melbourne crowd, Ricciardo joined the race from the pits as the rest of the field was on its third lap. 26 March 2017. The Age News. And for his fans at the Australian grand prix.

Horner said Red Bull was actually pleased its race pace was better than it had been in qualifying, but he admitted the team is still trailing the top two teams.

In terms of the Melbourne race at least, and in stark contrast to Ricciardo, Carey's hope came true.

Even Ricciardo, who placed fourth in Australia previous year and is immensely popular with the local crowd, had to shake his head as he reported back over the team radio "I guess we can't save it. Let's get. out of here".

"The Grand Prix is a jewel in Victoria's tourism crown, attracting major corporate sponsorship and global attention, and it beggars belief that it would not employ paid customer service staff", Portelli said.

Out front, Hamilton topped Sebastian Vettel for pole, with Valtteri Bottas missing out on a front row grid slot by just three hundredths of a second. "Our auto is clearly third, but in the next two races, we intend to reduce the gap. We still need to improve and we will work hard to do that".

But while Horner concedes Ferrari have the strongest vehicle at the start of the campaign, he believes Red Bull can cut their deficit to Mercedes within the next month.

Ricciardo added: "It's not the weekend I wanted at home".

Ricciardo's traumatic day began with confirmation of a five-place grid penalty after having a new gearbox installed in his Red Bull vehicle following a crash yesterday's qualifying.

Ricciardo eventually started the race from pit lane, joining with instructions from Red Bull to have fun and "get stuck in" after the leaders had already completed the first of 57 scheduled laps on the 5.303-kilometre (3.295-mile) Albert Park circuit.
