Formula One News » Redbull: Mercedes will be “dangerous”

Sebastian Vettel is expecting a strong challenge from Mercedes after both Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg posted quick pre-season testing times.

“I finally took the chance to watch some of the other teams for a bit,” Vettel told his official website.

“Nico had a great final day of testing in his Mercedes, which shows how dangerous he and Lewis will be in the future.”
“But, there are a lot of others to keep in mind as well.”

Christian Horner, Red Bull Racing team principal also believes Mercedes could be a threat.

“Mercedes have recorded some head-turning times with the programme they were operating to,” he told the Press Association Sport. Their car looks quick, and with Lewis joining the team they will naturally take a step forward.”

“Their challenge will be sustaining it over a whole season as they have been quick the last couple of years at the beginning – winning the third race last year in China.”

“Lewis, as we all know, is a world-class driver, and he is going to raise their level. He is worth lap time, which is why they signed him, and I’m sure they’re going to be a factor this season.”
