  • F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo hopes to end his Australia curse

"There are reprimands, fines and other things but to shoot me in the ankle before the season starts, well, I think they could have done better." .

"That sucks", said the Red Bull driver, who finished nearly a second off in fifth and will start the Australian GP eighth due to a grid penalty. "I just think common sense should have prevailed".

"But anyway, from fifth we go to eighth".

"I think we're the only ones in the top 10 to do that so hopefully that's going to work to our favour", he said.

Verstappen, eight years younger than Ricciardo, last year, re-signed with Red Bull until the end of the 2020 season, putting pressure on Ricciardo, out of contract at season's end, to lift his game.

If the USA imposes fresh sanctions on Iran , the country's capacity to export crude oil is likely to be crippled as a result. Secretary of State as a risk to oil markets, given that he fiercely opposed the Iranian nuclear deal as a member of Congress.

Champion Lewis Hamilton grabbed a record seventh pole at the Australian race for Mercedes, surpassing Ayrton Senna's six and leaving a gap of more than six-tenths of a second to Ferrari's second-placed Kimi Raikkonen.

"Not because it's Daniel and it's Australia, but I think Red Bull are now the team to look out for".

"There was no incident, I still slowed down, I wasn't speeding, I wasn't driving in danger, I wasn't trying to achieve anything from it, it was just an honest mistake but does that really rob me of a front row start at the first race of the season?

Disproportionate 3 place grid penalty that could take home driver out of contention for race win".

Meanwhile, the Red Bull team Principal was not convinced with Ricciardo and his way about looking at the penalty decision and believes there is nothing wrong with the decision.

"It's hard enough for us to understand let alone explain it to the fans", Horner said.

The penalty is a heavy blow to both Ricciardo and Red Bull, who have pushed Mercedes close in practice at Albert Park.

While Ricciardo has outscored Verstappen in their two seasons together at Red Bull, the Dutchman out-qualified Ricciardo 13-7 in the 20 races a year ago, his searing one-lap speed seeing the Australian regularly sport an atypically furrowed brow on Saturdays, and starting behind him for the grands prix on Sundays.

"It's eating away at him but we have to deal with it".
