LONDON, England - Red Bull can solve its problems on the new RB10, at least according to team adviser Helmut Marko.

The reigning champion F1 team had a disastrous opening test at Jerez in January 2014 as designer Adrian Newey's typically extreme packaging conflicted with engine supplier Renault's early V6 "power unit".


Speaking to Auto Bild magazine, Marko said: "We need to re-design certain things. It's annoying but in 2010 we did also not test in the first week." Despite that, now four-times F1 champion Sebastian Vettel won the championship.

This time the problems appear to be more serious. Auto Bild quoted technical chief Newey as admitting he had "no idea" if he could solve the RB10's problems.

Marko said: "Adrian's concept is good in principle - I think our car is very elegant and beautiful cars are usually also fast."
