MELBOURNE, Australia - Red Bull is yet to formally appeal the stewards' decision to disqualify Daniel Ricciardo.

Ricciardo was disqualified after finishing second in Melbourne, due to irregularities with his car's fuel-flow data and improper use of the FIA-supplied sensor.

The team said that an appeal would be lodged.

96 HOURS

The Australian news agency AAP quoted a FIA source as saying Red Bull has served notice of the intention to appeal, but an actual formal appeal is yet to be lodged.

The report added: "It is understood Red Bull now has 96 hours to formally table their appeal."

As for when the probably Paris-based appeal will be held, the FIA source said: "It's not possible to say when it will be heard.

"It depends on how quickly both parties can prepare their cases. There is no set timetable", the source added.

Featuring a photo of the normally-grinning Ricciardo with a bowed head, the front page headline of the major Melbourne newspaper Herald Sun on Monday read 'Grand Farce'.

Australian Grand Prix Corporation's chief executive Andrew Westacott said: "Of course I want him to keep second place, I'm a bit gutted by it, but that's sport and funny things happen."
