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)
