Rosberg: Red Bull can be caught

Rosberg: Red Bull can be caught

Nico Rosberg is confident that Red Bull won't be the dominant outfit they currently are, in 2014.

World champion Sebastian Vettel has triumphed in the last seven races and won in Abu Dhabi this past weekend by more than half a minute from team-mate Mark Webber, with Rosberg in third place another 2.8s adrift.

Despite the narrow margin between in the end between Webber and Rosberg, the Mercedes driver was never really in with a chance to overtake the Australian.

Rosberg, however, is confident that under the new regulations that come into effect in 2014, the proverbial playing field would be leveled.

"I don't think it's two seconds at the moment, I think it's less than that," Rosberg said.

"OK, maybe at times [in Abu Dhabi] but anyway, I'm not worried, no, because it's a great opportunity because it puts everybody back to zero, so on the contrary, it's actually better this way. Everybody starts from zero.

"We have such a strong team now, it's been built up over the last four years, they already did a fantastic job last winter from 1.5s a lap slower. At the beginning of this season we were sometimes the quickest car without a regulation change, so they did an amazing job last winter and I'm confident that they can do it again, for sure.

"And again this year, we had some weaknesses which we've learned from and are trying to continue improving and then I'm very sure we can have a good season."
