LONDON, England - Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel has admitted his 2014 Formula 1 troubles  are far from over.

Vettel said that even if his run of poor reliability ended soon Renault's early-season crisis would come home to roost later in 2014.

F1's tighter-than-ever long-life engine rules  state that a driver may only use five individual V6 engines, turbos, electric motors, batteries and control units in a season. The use of more than that would incur penalties.

Red Bull will begin tumbling down the grid once that allocation is exhausted.

Based on his list of component changes so far, Vettel told Auto Motor and Sport it was easy to calculate that he would not have sufficient engines for the whole 19-race season.
