Why Was Daniel Ricciardo Given Penalty ?

By Mike Sulka

Two weeks after Red Bull Formula One F1 driver was disqualified from the Australian Grand Prix podium after his team fought with the FIA over a fuel flow sensor, the youngster was once again handed a penalty. This time a 10-place grid penalty for the 2014 Bahrain Grand Prix after the team unsafely released him during the Malaysian GP pitstop.

In years past, the teams paid penalties, although drivers have been hit with drive-through penalities for unsafe releases.

But for the 2014 season, a new regulation was inserted. Article 23.12 c of the 2014 Sporting Regulation indicates that "if a car is deemed to have been released in an unsafe condition during a race the driver concerned will receive a ten grid place penalty at the driver's next Event. However, if any car released in an unsafe condition is able to resume the race a penalty under Article 16.3(c) will also be imposed on the driver concerned."

In 2013 there were nine penalties related to unsafe releases:

Malaysia - (Toro Rosso) fined €10,000
Bahrain - Giedo van der Garde (Caterham) €5,000
Spain - Giedo van der Garde (Caterham) fined €10,000
British - Kimi Räikkönen (Lotus) Reprimand
German - Mark Webber (Red Bull) fined €30,000
German - Paul di Resta (Force India) fined €10,000
Belgium - Romain Grosjean (Lotus) €5,000
Japan - Nico Rosberg (Mercedes) - Drive-through
Abu Dhabi - Nico Hulkenberg (Sauber) - Drive-Through
