F1 » Coulthard: Red Bull can be beaten in 2014


David Coulthard: Ferrari, McLaren and Mercedes are not there to make up the numbers. They have deep pockets, too, and with the biggest regulation changes in a generation coming up in 2014, the opportunity is there for someone to swoop in...

It would be nice to think so but while Redbull CAN be beaten while Newey and Vettel are around I think that highly unlikely. No other designer can outthink and outdesign Newey on a regular basis and Vettel will take a lot of beating even if he does'nt have quite the advantage he has had this year. If any driver can do it Alonso stands out for what he has done with the second or worse cars in the past.

Coulthard does love this sport and it is in the interests of the sport to think and believe that Red Bull can be beaten in 2014. I think that Vettel winning title after title is not the main problem, but Vettel/Red Bull winning title after title is. My hero Alain Prost did change many teams and won titles or came runner up with them, always performing strongly. That's why on my opinion he stands far ahead of the likes of Vettel or Schumacher, despite Schumacher having his Benetton titles as well. But he had Brawn/Byrne assisting him in both teams. Sooner or later Vettel will have to change team and will have to adapt to life without Adrian Newey and with cars not particularly suited to him. Then he will reach the next level and then we can see if he is the all time greatest or not?
