Red Bull team princial Christian Horner insists there are no major problems with the new RB10, despite a disastrous first pre-season test in Jerez.

The team completed just 21 laps over the four days, leading to speculation that the team's 2014 challenger was suffering from extreme overheating issues to the tight packaging of the new Renault V6 power unit.

Horner however insists things aren't as bad as some have made out.

"There's a few things we needed to tighten up on our side but nothing major and obviously Renault have some issues that they are tidying up as well," he told SkySports. "But these cars are so complicated that even small problems can cause big failures.

"Obviously there's quite a bit to do but there's still a fair bit of time before the first race. The Bahrain test next week is an important test and we are working very hard at both Renault and Milton Keynes," he added.

"We don't want another test like Jerez but that's what testing is for - you sort your problems out so as not to have them at the races."
