Both Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo have been excluded from qualifying for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix after stewards at Yas Marina found the team guilty of running an illegal front wing. Representatives for Red Bull were called to the stewards after qualifying, in which Ricciardo and Vettel secured 5th and 6th on the grid.
FIA technical delegate Jo Bauer had informed the stewards about a potential problem with the flexing front wing on the RB10 and the stewards found that it did breach the regulations. They’ve excluded the drivers but said they can start from the back of the grid.
Red Bull responded with a statement saying: “We are disappointed that we have been singled out for a front wing deflection test when it is clear that other teams are interpreting the rules in a similar fashion. The team accepts the decision of the Stewards and will start the race from the back of the grid.”
