‘Ayrton Senna Sempre’

If you were in the habit of shopping in Adelaide department stores in the late Eighties or early Nineties, you might have come across a slightly-built, boyish-looking young man patrolling the aisles of the luggage department.

He was looking for bags big enough to transport some shoes back to his native country of Brazil. By ‘some shoes’ we mean 75 pairs: he was buying a pair of shoes for every member of his recently-established charitable foundation. His name was Ayrton Senna.

Ricciardo fired up following appeal decision

Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo will use the FIA appeal result to fuel his motivation for the rest of the season, after the International Court of Appeal rejected Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s claim that the fuel-flow sensor was faulty.

The FIA last night delivered the news following a lengthy deliberation in Paris, ruling to uphold the initial decision, which disqualified Ricciardo from the Australian Grand Prix.

Red Bull Racing Appeal Result

The FIA International Court of Appeal has tonight rejected the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula One team’s appeal against Daniel Ricciardo’s disqualification from the 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix.

Ricciardo was disqualified from the race after his car was found to have ‘consistently’ exceeded the maximum fuel flow rate of 100kg/h. Red Bull Racing argued that the FIA-homologated fuel-flow sensor was not reliable during Monday’s hearing in Paris, however, the exclusion has been upheld.
