Daniel Ricciardo collided with the Haas driver on the very first lap that led to retirement for each drivers. The stewards judged the Australian to be solely accountable for the crash and therefore handed him the penalty. The stewards’ report learn:
“Ricciardo made contact with Magnussen at Flip 8 on lap one, which brought on Magnussen to spin, and subsequently each automobiles crashed. McLaren defined that of their view Magnussen was slower on the exit of Flip 8 than the opposite automobiles forward, which made it tough to evaluate the closing price, as the 2 automobiles interacted. Ricciardo defined that in his view, he had slowed sufficiently that he was not going to collide with Magnussen and that he barely misjudged it. The Stewards acknowledged that the incident was not reckless. Nevertheless, they decided that the incident was between two automobiles and was not influenced by a number of different automobiles and is due to this fact not a ‘first lap incident’.”

Daniel Ricciardo displays on his early retirement from the race
Daniel Ricciardo was very disenchanted by what was an early exit for him from the race. The driving force mirrored on the contact with Kevin Magnussen and felt that it was a small mistake that ended up having large repercussions for him. He stated:
“Firstly, I am disenchanted because it’s at all times tough when your race is over so rapidly. I touched the again of Kevin and it is a disgrace. I believe the most important disappointment is that it was such a small contact, but it surely had huge penalties. I did not anticipate him to spin, I assume that was simply the angle that we touched and it simply unloaded his rear. I really feel most instances, a small contact like that, you will get away with it. So it was fairly unlucky for each of us. It was an eventful race, so, it is a disgrace to not have been on the market. Apologies to the group right here and again at residence however we’ll reset and go yet one more time in Abu Dhabi.”
Daniel Ricciardo shall be collaborating in his final F1 race for a while in Abu Dhabi as he is not going to function on the grid subsequent season.
