Michael Schumacher says he is not worried about any of his major rivals ahead of the start of the Formula One season in Melbourne this weekend.
Schumacher says Ferrari can see off any challenge in 2004
The six-time champion said Ferrari's fightback to win last year's title has given him confidence he can win again.
"We have demonstrated that when the going gets tough we are able to unite, find a solution and reverse the situation," he said.
"It is part of our character and that is why I have no fear."
Schumacher said he was confident Ferrari would have no reliability worries with the new one-engine-per-weekend rule.
If a team has to change an engine before qualifying, that car is demoted 10 places on the grid. An engine change during or after qualifying will mean starting from the back.
Schumacher said: "Our team has worked very hard for the whole winter developing the engine and in my opinion we have achieved some fantastic results."
