We're ahead of the pack - Horner

Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner believes his team is already ahead in the development race ahead of the 2014 season.

The Milton Keynes outfit secured its fourth consecutive Drivers' and Constructors' Championship titles in 2013, but under the new regulations that come into effect next year, the remaining teams on the paddock have a fresh chance to build a title-challenging car.

Although some aspects of the new regulations - particularly engine regulations that has a bearing on the power train, heat rejection and the efficiency of ERS - are largely out of Red Bull's control, Horner is confident that the manner in which the reigning champions racked up points in the second half of 2013 has allowed chief engineer Adrian Newey to start work on the 2014 car ahead of schedule.

"Of course we've been pushing the boundaries and Adrian is never famous for starting next year's car early," Horner told ESPN.

"That's exactly the same case for RB10, but thankfully we managed to secure this championship reasonably early which has enabled all the focus to go on to RB10 whilst obviously Ferrari and Mercedes have been battling each other for the runner-up position."
