Lewis Hamilton is tipping Sebastian Vettel to succeed once again in 2013, which would see the German take a fourth consecutive title.
Hamilton, who moves to Mercedes next season, says he fully expects the Adrian Newey penned RB9 to lead the field as its title winning predecessor did during parts of the 2012 season.
"It's going to be hard to beat Sebastian next year," said Hamilton. "I think Sebastian's going to have another amazing car.
"The car he had this year was fantastic. It's going to be an evolution of that next year. Adrian only seems to get better with age; I think he's going to do something special next year as well."
Speaking about his future, the 27-year-old says his goal remains to win and he'll out in as much work as possible to do so.
"I want to win - of course. That's my goal. I can't wait to get my hands on the team and the car and just try to work as quick as possible," he added.
"It doesn't matter how many days, how many hours it takes. I'm willing to put all the effort in. I feel like I've got a new breath of life in me, so I'm ready for it."
