Alain Prost is worried the 2013 season could be another Red Bull whitewash as the world champions target a fourth consecutive title.

The general consensus in the Melbourne paddock is that – while Ferrari, Lotus and Mercedes all look competitive – Red Bull continues to lead the pack by a margin.

Quadruple world champion Prost told France’s RMC Sport: “I hope there is no team or driver that crushes the opposition, as was the case two years ago with (Sebastian) Vettel. I’m a little worried about it, because – to me – the Red Bull looks very good.”

Meanwhile, when asked to nominate a most dangerous rival for Red Bull in 2013, team boss Christian Horner told Spanish television Antena 3: “Fernando Alonso.” (GMM)
