Red Bull team principal Christian Horner labeled the Bahrain GP as “brutal” for the team.
The race looked promising for the squad but then went horribly wrong, as both cars had to retire from the race through the closing stages.
The team stated they’re still trying to understand what caused the problems.
“It’s a brutal finish to that race for us,” Horner told Sky Sports.
“What looked like a decent haul of points obviously evaporated in the last couple of laps there.
“We don’t know exactly what it is yet, whether it’s a lift pump, whether it’s a collector or something along those lines, but we’ve got to get into it and understand exactly what’s caused it.”
Horner stated the issue might be the same on both cars.
“It’s all subjective at the moment until we get the cars apart and understand exactly what’s caused the issue,” he explained.
“I suspect it’s similar on both cars, because it’s too close and too similar a failure.”
