Daniel Ricciardo has confirmed he will not be in attendance during Monday's International Court of Appeal (ICA) hearing against his exclusion from second place at the Australian Grand Prix.

The Red Bull driver stands to gain 18 points, which would put him third in the drivers' standings, should his team provide enough evidence to overturn the FIA's decision.

Despite this, he says it would be pointless him attending.

"I'll obviously wait to hear the result from the team, I'm sure they'll give me a call," he told Crash.net.

"There's nothing that I can do, there's nothing that I can really worry about.

The Australian has already come to terms with the loss of his maiden podium, so regaining it, he says, would be a bonus.

"As far as I'm concerned let's say the damage was done on Sunday night in Melbourne. I'm not going to be any more upset than I was then.

"Obviously I would love to get them back; I would be pleased but in a way I've sort of dealt with it now and whatever happens, happens."
