"We are sorry for Daniel [Ricciardo] that he will not be awarded the 18 points from the event, which we think he deserved.
"We will continue to work very hard to amass as many points as possible for the team, Daniel and Sebastian [Vettel] throughout the season.
"We will now move on from this and concentrate on this weekend’s Chinese Grand Prix."
