The Italian marque saw Fernando Alonso suffer a DRS-related problem that needed the Spaniard to do without the device for much of the race.
Despite that, he secured four points by finishing in eighth but the gap between him and championship leader Sebastian Vettel has now widened to 30 points following the German's victory in Sakhir.
Team-mate Felipe Massa had an even worser time of it on Sunday afternoon as he had to go into the pits twice due to tyre punctures.
"We don't know yet [on what went wrong for Alonso]. There is a failure and it's a disappointment because today [Sunday] we could have done a great race. Honestly the pace was ther," Domenicali told Sky Sports F1 right after the race.
"It was not the day for us because Felipe had contact at the beginning and then two problems with the tyres that we need to understand. We need to understand because one came suddenly at the last corner and one came on the backstraight.
"So not a good day for us, let's move ahead. Big shame, but that's racing."
Alonso tried to put on a brave face despite the ordeal that saw him go into the pit lane on two occasions in consecutive laps.
"It was very difficult," he lamented. "We stopped two times in two laps so you are at the back of the group and with no DRS to pass the race becomes very difficult."
"But it's the way it went today. A very unlucky race again so in four races two very unlucky moments.
"It will come for the others and we will take the opportunity in that moment."
Massa finished in 15th place while Alonso ended his race over 37.5 seconds just a week after winning the Chinese Grand Prix.
