Red Bull Racing have presented their new RB10 to the press this morning at Jerez, unveiled by World Champion Sebastian Vettel and his new teammate, Daniel Ricciardo who came over from Scuderia Toro Rosso.

Team principal Christian Horner pointed out the 2014 design is entirely new, making it a daunting challenge for the team to get every element right from the beginning of the season.

"It's a clean sheet of paper and an opportunity for the design team to get their teeth into a new challenge", he said. "The biggest challenge is in the power unit and that's where we rely heavily on our engine partner Renault to make sure that we have a power unit that is competitive with our rivals. We have every confidence they will have.

"It's dangerous to ever be over confident that you have all the elements in place for the start of a season. We've enjoyed continuity over the past few years and we've got a strong driver line-up and a strong technical line-up, as well as great strength and depth in the team, but you can't take anything for granted, as Formula One, like any sport, can be unpredictable.

"This year the reliability of the power unit is going to be critical. Whoever has the most powerful and reliable power unit will probably come out on top, so it's a game changer in many respects, but we look forward to the new challenge."
