Marko: Red Bull issues annoying but fixable

Dr Helmut Marko is sure Red Bull will get its 2014 title-defense back on track.

The reigning world champions endured a disastrous opening test at Jerez as designer Adrian Newey's typically extreme packaging for the new RB10 clashed badly with engine supplier Renault's early V6 'power unit' niggles.

"We need to redesign certain things," Red Bull's Marko told Germany's Auto Bild.

"It's annoying, but I keep remembering that in 2010 we also did not test in the first week."

Red Bull, and the now quadruple-consecutive world champion Sebastian Vettel, ultimately went on to win the 2010 title.

This time, however, the problems appear to be more serious. Auto Bild quoted technical chief Newey as admitting he has "no idea" if he can solve the RB10's problems to his satisfaction.

Marko, though, is confident.

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