Daniel Ricciardo's Australian Grand Prix jinx struck again on Friday with the Red Bull driver handed a three-place grid penalty for his home race for going too fast during red flag conditions.

"The Stewards therefore are imposing a lesser penalty than usual and impose a three-grid place penalty and two penalty points (on his super-licence)".

The Australian driver explained to FIA that an error might have occurred in reading his car's dashboard.

Australian star driver Daniel Ricciardo's horrid luck at his home Grand Prix continued Friday when a red flag for debris on the track ruined his second practice session.

Russian Federation reportedly helped Venezuela launch its petro cryptocurrency to skirt United States sanctions
Venezuela's currency, the bolívar, has suffered from hyperinflation as a result of government mismanagement and USA sanctions. U.S. calls the digital currency an attempt by the Venezuelan government to "circumvent United States sanctions ".

"Not because it's Daniel and it's Australia, but I think Red Bull are now the team to look out for. They could give me a reprimand, they could do something else, give me a fine for all I care, but don't rob me of a front row start".

"I thought it was unjust", Ricciardo said on his penalty.

Red Bull chief Christian Horner told Sky F1: "It's tremendously frustrating". We had quite a lot of understeer.

Ricciardo was also given two penalty points on his license.

While the stewards' report noted that Ricciardo "had slowed by as much as 175km/h from his fast times at Turn 12", and that his actions to not create any danger, he will have to start further back from what would have been his original starting position. In the last part of Q3 we just missed a bit in the first sector, I'm not totally sure where the time is so we'll have to look at that. Before the cars had turned a wheel at Albert Park last week, Ricciardo's voice was nearly shot, a result of countless interviews answering "5000 questions" about his future, and he was relieved to strap himself into Red Bull's RB14 machine for practice on Friday.

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. Unfortunately he still completed the lap too fast after misreading his dash display.
