Ferrari identified reason for Alonso’s DRS failure

Ferrari identified the cause for Fernando Alonso’s DRS failure during the Bahrain Grand Prix, and the team says that it was the first such failure for the device in three years of action.

Italian F1 squad revealed that DRS failure caused by “a mechanical breakage”, during the race the fracture caused Alonso’s DRS to stay open following it had been activated, radically reducing his downforce level.

Following the issue Alonso takes on two unscheduled pit-stop, finally he finished with eighth place without use of DRS.

“It’s hard to recall a race where so many things went wrong. The DRS failure prevented Fernando, who yet again produced a great performance, from fighting Vettel for the win.” Ferrari team Principal Stefano Domenicali said

“We must also continue to develop the car and increase our understanding of the tyres, which is more crucial than ever this year,” he said.

“In these first four races of the season, we have not managed, for various reasons, to bring home the points that were within our grasp.”

“That’s why the gap to the top in both classifications seems quite large, but we must not be discouraged by this, quite the contrary, because we have seen so often, both in our favour and against, how things can change in a hurry.”
