After Sebastian Vettel’s four years of domination, Red Bull was brought back down to earth last season. The German has now departed for Ferrari, making way for young Russian Daniil Kvyat to step up from Toro Rosso and take on Daniel Ricciardo – the only non-Mercedes driver to win a race in 2014.

The Aussie marked himself out as a true star and potential future champion with his performances last year, but on testing form Red Bull will be more concerned about battling Ferrari and Williams than chasing down Mercedes when the flag falls in Melbourne.

Our verdict: Red Bull’s in much better shape than it was at the start of 2014, but it’ll be vying with Williams and Ferrari for the title of ‘best of the rest’.
