Despite Red Bull having a bad day in the Malaysian Grand Prix at Sepang, team boss Christian Horner still found time to pay tribute to his former world champion driver Sebastian Vettel.

Horner agreed that Ferrari's defeat of Mercedes was good for the sport.

"I think it's healthy for F1," he said. "Not a great day for us, but a good day for F1 that in an outright race they've managed to beat [Mercedes].

"I think on a personal note it's great to see Seb win," he noted. "It was classic Sebastian, he got his head down at the front, managed the tyres, and he managed to make a two-stop work when others couldn't.

"Obviously the Ferrari looked very gentle on its tyres in this heat and temperature. On a personal note, I'm pleased for him. He looked a happy chap."

Taking heart from Mercedes defeat

Horner said RBR could take encouragement from what Ferrari did.

"I think it demonstrates that everything is possible," he said. "Ferrari have done a good job, and things can change quite quickly.

"We just have to focus on our issues and address them in the forthcoming races."
