Red Bull have officially confirmed the cause of their double retirement at the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix and say they have "taken the necessary steps" to ensure that there will be no reoccurrence.
Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez both retired within sight of the chequered flag last time out, with the team embarking on a thorough post-race investigation to uncover the precise cause of their issues.
Verstappen had been running second to Ferrari's Charles Leclerc before he was forced into the pits, while Perez dropped out on the final lap, having inherited a podium position from his teammate.

Red Bull confirm their issues and implement a fix
After Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko spoke of a vacuum inside the fuel supply system earlier this week, Red Bull have formally commented on the matter.
"Both cars suffered from a lack of fuel pressure last weekend," a Red Bull spokesperson told RacingNews365.com.
"The correct amount of fuel was in both cars, but a vacuum prevented the pumps from drawing fuel and delivering it to the engine.
"We've taken the necessary steps to correct this issue and we expect no problems this weekend."
