Red Bull team principal Christian Horner doesn't expect any one team to dominate the season, much like 2012 which saw various winners.

The opening seven races last year enjoyed different winners, whilst a total of eight drivers secured race wins.

Horner expects a similar scenario this year and says maximising the results at circuits they might not fare so well at, is crucial to remaining in the title hunt.

"I think it will be a case of different circuits suiting different cars," he explained on Thursday. "Last year the significant blown diffuser change had a large impact on our early season performance.

"As a team we optimised our performances where our car was sub-optimal, focussed on developing the car and, when we got the opportunity, we grabbed it with both hands and delivered when it mattered.

"I think this season coming will be another where it will to and fro; there are four or five teams capable of winning and it will be down to teams and drivers to do the most consistent job from race one to 19.

"On days you can't win, the third, fourth, and fifth places become so important. You have to make sure you get the maximum possible from each weekend."
