First of all, the "brake check" accusation is unfounded. They were in T2 on cold tires in the wet, everyone was a bit slow at that point. Alonso went in slightly quicker with no room to slow, thus the light tap, nobody's fault, just a race incident. However, the wing did seem to snap with relatively no impact. This could indicate a strong possibility that the broken wing is the result of whining about RedBull wing flex, which has created structures now so rigid they no longer flex to absorb energy, causing structural failures that will happen more frequently this season as a result. Ferrari in particular has had issues with wing structure, so the failure is likely a design flaw coupled with overly rigid requirements within FIA test specifications.
