'If It's F1, It's Vital'

Video: A closer look at Red Bull's RB10

Red Bull Racing's latest challenger for the 2014 Formula One World Championship season is the RB10.

A poor winter testing season from Red Bull and engine manufacturer Renault has seen the defending F1 title holders struggle during the winter.

Poor mileage and lap times were never really improved upon in Spain or Bahrain, as quadruple Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel was powerless as Mercedes continued to hammer home quick lap times and thousands of kilometres of track running.

The situation is so grave for Red Bull that they have all but written off the open rounds of the new season.

But despite being on the backfoot, Vettel and Red Bull have not given up hope of a fifth consecutive world championship.

'Our preparation hasn't been ideal, and we are not in the best position for this race, but in the championship there is a long way to go,' the German said bullishly.

'It will be a very different car, We had a lot of problems during the test so we didn't get to test a lot of stuff and we'll hopefully do more running here and put the parts on the car that we think are better for overall performance.'

'There are a lot of things to solve and unfortunately you can't solve them overnight, We are just going step-by-step, but at the moment it's a bit unknown where we are. It's not a secret that you need very, very strong reliability to be a title contender. I'm looking forward to Sunday to see where we are.'
