Renault has announced that it will not appeal Daniel Ricciard's disqualification, the French team on Twitter merely cynically commenting that it was an accident in which the Australian gained a negligible time advantage.
Daniel Ricciardo finished eighth in qualifying, and a regular inspection of his car would indicate irregularities in the MGU-K system, which is expected to produce more electricity than required by FIE technical regulation .
FIE commissioners have disqualified Daniel Ricciard from malfunctioning of the MGU-K system from the qualification results. The Australian, who qualified for the eighth starting position, will start from the last starting row, and possibly changing the powertrain will most likely start the race for the GP of Singapore.
The Renault team wrote on social media:
“Renault took note of the disqualification of Daniel Ricciard from qualifying for the Grand Prix of Sigapur. In his slowest lap in Q1, Daniel hit the curb, triggering a surge of energy from the MGU-K, gaining one microsecond advantage. We will not appeal the decision. ”
