"Driving around with the DRS flap stuck open wouldn’t be a deal breaker for a skilled driver like Alonso, but the F1 rules posse wouldn’t have gone for it."

I agree that stewards would have called Alonso in had Ferrari not, but even for Alonso taking some of the corners (effectively) minus much of the rear wing would have caught him out eventually.
He simply had no downforce without it and was apparently complaining over the radio about it.

Good stuff sir.
