Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has said that Red Bull have a 'stunning' car for which they are strong contenders for the Australian Grand Prix.

Hamilton said that he is sure that Red Bull has got a 'pretty quick' car and they would be 'very hard to beat' as the more 'beautiful' the car is, the more 'faster' it is, despite Red Bull's disastrous pre-season testing programme.

According to the BBC, Hamilton, however feels that his team would be contenders this season and said that his team is 'stronger' than ever and he is hopeful of being able to 'fight' with Red Bull.

This season would see the biggest rule changes in the generation with the introduction of turbo hybrid engines and a fuel limit and Hamilton has said that the new rules and the reliability problems have made it difficult to predict who would start on top in this year's Australian Grand Prix, the report added.

Meanwhile, Red Bull have done fewer miles than any other team except Lotus amid a host of problems and their driver Sebastian Vettel, four time world champion has reportedly admitted that his team was not yet competitive.
