Ferrari has pinpointed the reason for Fernando Alonso's DRS failure at the Bahrain Grand Prix and has vowed to work harder on reliability issues ahead of the coming races. The team indentified the problem as a "breakage of a mechanical component within the system" that was "the first problem of its kind on this system seen in the three years during which it has been used". The breakage caused Alonso's DRS to remain open after it had been activated, significantly reducing his downforce level.
