Christian Horner could not hide his smile despite a Red Bull not winning Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix.
Championship leader Sebastian Vettel finished the Budapest race second, but because the fifth-placed Jenson Button won, the German's vast gap grew from 77 points to 85 over teammate Mark Webber.
And Vettel's gap to the closest non-Red Bull runner - Lewis Hamilton - is now a whopping 88 points with just 8 races to run.
"Congratulations to him," said the Briton.
We are not disappointed. In situations like that it's always a lottery

Formula one figures are now looking forward to an almost one-month break before Spa-Francorchamps, including a mandatory two-week factory shutdown.
"We will be working at full speed for another week until we close the factory and re-charge our batteries -- just like KERS," joked Horner.
