The fact is that Red Bull Racing keeps winning world championships, year in, year out. Ok, WDC of 2012 hasn't been clinched yet, but WCC of 2012 pretty much is. Horner as a team boss is responsible for the whole organization, so if the whole team is doing well, he must be doing something right. It looks like he is really good at team management and everyone in the team knows what they are doing and do it well and efficiently. Red Bull's car development speed is well-praised, but in addition to that their strategies, pitstops, trackside operations, etc, are all pretty good as well. So Horner has managed to establish and keep a very high-level all-round top team together for a long period.
Will he go into the history as a Great in his field (which is F1 team management)? Even if he is not recognized as such now and people are often not really thinking about it from such perspective? I often see Whitmarsh and Domenicali getting criticized for not being able to lead their respective legendary teams well enough. Brawn is highly-rated, but has not been able to deliver at Merc. Is Horner the real deal compared to all of them?
