He should say: No guarantees we'll get it more right than all the others. I don't believe that the next RBR will be slow or very unreliable. At least they should be one of the top 3 teams at the first flyaway races.

Ferrari and McLaren too often assume they can start the season a little behind, then catch up later. Red Bull have always come to race one loaded for bear. Has not always been perfect, but they seem to spend far less time playing catch up - and more time gaping themselves from those that are. It would be surprising to see the car be the issue. The real question for 2014 is all about power train packages - who will have that right. Between KERS now a larger portion of the power (where failure will destroy race pace completely) , the turbo, heat management and general mechanical shake down for an all new engines.. Red Bull may have it right, but if Renault is off its game, things will get ugly fast. I have my greatest doubts about Ferrari on this score - small fuel efficient turbo V6 engines are not exactly their forte, while current leadership does little to boost confidence they will come out of the box on fire (literally maybe, competitively not so much.)

They have Adrien Newey and Vettel so I don't believe they will be found wanting when it comes to next season, the one area where things might not be right is the engine and we will have to wait and see who has the best engine, Renault have a huge experience with turbos so should be in the best position. 2015 will be more interesting with Honda coming in, Just hope the racing is less processional and boring.

Horner is correct in what he said, nobody in his right mind can guarantee that any team will get it right and that includes the engine manufacturers.
But still some of the F1 followers will stick their neck out and try and predict the outcome.

I'm sure if there is one engine which has an obvious advantage, rules will be jiggled to restrict their boost very quickly and, if BTCC is anything to go by, there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth along with all the usual conspiracy theories.
RBR will still have Newey but they have lost their head of aero and that may be significant.
