JEREZ, Spain - Red Bull and Williams have launched the Formula One cars they hope will be able to better compete with Mercedes when the new season starts in six weeks time.Red Bulls RB11 and the Williams FW37 were unveiled Sunday prior to the first day of pre-season testing at the Jerez circuit in southern Spain.Mercedes, which won the constructors championship by nearly 300 points, also launched its W06 on Sunday, with championship runner-up Nico Rosberg later taking the wheel on the first day of testing and completing a massive 157 laps. F1 champion Lewis Hamilton drives on Monday.Long before the end of last season, development work on our 2015 car became the main priority, Toto Wolff, the head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport, said. It would be so dangerous to rest on our laurels after 2014.Red Bull finished second overall last year and was the only team to win a race other than Mercedes, with Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo winning three GPs as Sebastian Vettel struggled. Williams finished third in the constructors championship, a sign for Rosberg that this seasons contest could be tougher for Mercedes.Red Bull, for example. Just one year ago they were the untouchable team. So you can expect them to be very strong, Rosberg said. Williams was right on our tail at the end of last season, they finished the last race just three seconds from us. We definitely expect our competitors to close the gap and we have a close eye on them.The opening race is on March 15 in Melbourne and Mercedes has been working on improving the chassis and power unit. A maximum of four power units are allowed this year, one less than 2014.Expectations are now high and a lot of assumptions are being made about our potential this season, Mercedes technical director Paddy Lowe said. You have to take risks to progress, but those risks must be carefully managed.While Red Bull and Ferrari changed their driver lineups — with Vettel joining Ferrari and two-time champion Fernando Alonso leaving Ferrari to join McLaren — Hamilton and Rosberg are driving together for the third straight season.The Williams pairing of Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas showed encouraging speed last year — with Bottas securing six podium finishes.The new Williams car features some small changes to the front nose and bulkhead.The momentum we carry from last year has been very encouraging, said Massa, the championship runner-up in 2008. I am excited to be continuing to work with Valtteri, a driver with so much talent who has so much to offer both the team and me.After years of stability with Vettel alongside former driver Mark Webber, Red Bulls new pairing of Ricciardo and 20-year-old Daniil Kvyat is exciting and untested.Weve already seen what Daniel is capable of and we firmly believe that (Kvyat) has all the same attributes, team principal Christian Horner said. Theyre young, hungry, theyre incredibly quick and I think they are going to push each other very hard.Needing to make vast improvements on last year, Red Bull made changes to the lower nose box, the front of the chassis and the Renault power unit.The relationship with Renault is a lot closer now, Horner said. Red Bull is the only partner for Renault now, through ourselves and Toro Rosso, and that focus from Renault — together with a close involvement with our design team — is yielding good results.

The Portuguese star was unavailable for selection due to suspension, and it appeared as though his services would be needed after Aritz Elustondo nodded home a corner kick in the opening minute to give visiting Sociedad the lead. But the hosts cruised the rest of the way, equalizing two minutes later with a headed goal of their own as James Rodriguez got on the end of Marcelos chip into the box and guided the delivery into the upper corner. Sergio Ramos handed Real Madrid the lead in the 37th minute when he occupied an advanced position and slammed home a rebound from Karim Benzemas shot. Benzema then got in on the act in the second period, scoring twice to put the final result on ice. The Frenchman made it three in the 52nd minute after working a give-and-go with Gareth Bale, taking the return pass and sliding it into an empty net.dddddddddddd The dagger was the pick of the lot as Benzema ran on to a soft pass from Isco in the 76th minute and curled a sensational first-time effort into the upper corner. The commanding victory sees Real Madrid improve to 51 points to stay atop the La Liga table. Real Sociedad, meanwhile, stays put on 22 points. Atletico Madrid kept pace with Real Madrid by earning a 3-1 victory at Eibar on Saturday. Antoine Griezmann opened the scoring for Atletico in the seventh minute while a brace from Mario Mandzukic put the visitors in a comfortable position. Federico Piovaccari pulled one back for Eibar in the 89th minute, but it was merely a consolation goal as Atletico climbs level with second-place Barcelona on 47 points apiece. Also on Saturday, Jhon Cordoba produced the lone goal in Granadas 1-0 defeat of 10-man Elche and Nolito bagged the only strike in Celta Vigos 1-0 victory over Cordoba.
