Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo says he didn't expect the outcome of this week's appeal against his disqualification from the Australian Grand Prix to be positive for the team.

Ricciardo finished in second place in Australia but was excluded after exceeding the fuel flow rate limit during the race.

Red Bull appealed the decision but their argument was dismissed as the FIA upheld the result at a court case in Paris on Monday.

"[I'm] obviously a little bit disappointed but at the same time I had moved on already," he said.

"I think Sunday night in Melbourne the damage was already done and I went from a big high to a pretty big low, so I’d sort of already moved on. I hoped but didn’t really expect too much to come from it. So that’s it.

"I’m here now in Shanghai and that’s it. There’s no more ifs or buts, it’s here, I have 12 points and i just have to play catch-up."
