Next season reassembled with regulations changes, and it will shake-up competition level. Possibly Red Bull will keep top level, given the squad’s domination in recent years.

But Mercedes will boost their comparative battle with their new 1.6 litre-turbo charged V6 engines, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg will both be expecting that they can push for podium finish.

“It [the regulation changes] is a big challenge and a big opportunity to go ahead again,” Lauda told Autosport.

“This challenge is on the side of the engine, gearbox and car so I think it is a different thing to the last couple of years. I am looking forward to it.”

Pressed on if Mercedes can challenge for the title and what will happen during the coming year, Lauda replied: “Nobody knows.

“But the target has to be reliability. Who has the most reliable piece of engine, gearbox and car will win the championship. Next year is not speed, it is reliability. It is what we all have to work for.” Triple time F1 world champion added.
