Red Bull and engine partner Renault made headlines when they struggled simply to run their  title-defending new RB10 at Jerez, causing Bernie Ecclestone to single out Mercedes as the new 2014 favourite.

“Anything can happen under the new regulations,” the Formula 1 Chief Executive told the Indo-Asian News Service this week. “So I would not want to comment much on what could happen this season.

“The way things worked out at Jerez, Mercedes seem best prepared to succeed with [Nico] Rosberg winning the title,” Ecclestone added. (GMM)

    Bernie stirring it up and no doubt trying get at Lewis – the old guy is either senile or genius or perhaps a bit of both

    Nico wins the Jerez championship – Yay.

    Ecclestone is becoming a parody of himself. Sad.

    This guy is an odd ball, always talking up the German Drivers. Nico is good but I think Hamilton is a faster driver. Before someone points out that Nico won 2 races over Hamilton’s 1 then lets not forget the British GP win was inherited when Hamilton’s tire went thanks the dodgy construction problem ;)

    Is it really appropriate for the head of F1 to be picking winners before the season has even started? Surely such a role in the sport should mean and unbiased silence on the subject. Oh…… sorry readers, total brain fade there for a moment, this is Bernie no rules apply and if they do just pay someone off.
