It is no secret that it is all change in Formula 1 this forthcoming season, with revolutionary rule changes brought about as the second turbo era dawns. Red Bull Formula 1 team boss Christian Horner believes it will to be a game changing year.

Horner told Bloomberg, “Petrol is a challenge because we are limited to 100 kg to start the grand prix with and I think reliability issues in the early races are going to be a key factor. And, we only have five engines for the whole year…”

He also warned that the gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’ will grow, “The differences between the teams will be bigger. Whenever there is a reset, teams that have the investment, that have the resources and the facilities will turn up with a more advanced product.”

The possibility that Formula 1 becomes a two class series is a very real possibility according to the World Champions’ Team Principal, “I think it could be. That is why stability is so important, as if you have stability then the grid concertinas, and it is down to details.”

“The regulations we have for this year are a definite game changer,” added Horner.

Red Bull has announced that they will unveil their Adrian Newey penned RB10 on the morning of the first day of testing at Jerez, which begins on 28 January. (GP247)
