Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said that his squad can be very proud of its performance this season following Mark Webber's victory in the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Despite Webber's win, his team-mate Sebastian Vettel missed out on the chance to take the title fight down to Abu Dhabi, with Brawn denying Red Bull a final-round shot at the constructors' title as well.
But Horner believes that the season has so far been one of positives rather than negatives.
"We said we were going to fight every single lap and both drivers today did a brilliant job," he said.
"Sebastian gave it everything and he can be very proud not just of what he achieved today but what he's achieved this season in only his second full season in Formula 1, he's put a great championship together.
"We pushed the Brawns as hard as we could, when you reflect on a season there's opportunities lost and won.
"When look right back to the beginning, Melbourne, penalties, diffusers, it's a long season and everybody has the same stories but I think the team can be very proud of what its achieved this year and we're very well structured for the future."
Horner praised the drive of Webber, who claimed the second F1 win of his career at Interlagos.
"Mark was supreme at the front," he added. "He was so cool throughout and just got the job done. It was a brilliant drive from him today.
"I'm very proud of what both drivers have achieved this year, and the team, it's our fifth win, that's the 135th point, so it's been a great season, and next year the momentum is with us to have an even stronger showing."
