His next titles came in 2014, 2015 and 2017 in an unstoppable Mercedes, but this year's triumph will be among his most satisfying having outscored Vettel despite driving a slower vehicle for much of the season.
Lewis Hamilton stands on the brink of his fifth Formula One championship but that does not mean he will be playing it safe when the start lights go out at Sunday's Mexican Grand Prix.
The Australian has suffered seven retirements in 18 races this year and his long and triumphant whoop over the team radio, and some typically colourful language afterwards, said it all.
"He's had an immensely frustrating afternoon", said Horner.
"We were struggling - both Valtteri and I".

To complete this, when Fangio did it [won two titles] with Mercedes, is incredible, very, very surreal".
"I knew the pace was in the vehicle - Max showed that all weekend - I just knew it was putting together a clean lap at the end. The fact we have locked out the front row for the first time in years is a brilliant result for the Team, you can't beat first and second".
Vettel botched an overtaking move on the safety auto restart, ultimately dropping to fourth, and then Bottas shredded a rear tyre on debris, gifting Hamilton a win, the lead of the championship and crucial momentum that was backed up in Spain in the following race.
"I told him to keep pushing for next year, as I need him good to fight him again", said the German, who with Raikkonen is aiming now to deliver the constructors title to Ferrari in the last two races.

Yet he didn't get the leisurely Sunday drive he would have liked over the 71 laps in the high altitude at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.
"But we should be happy when it comes to the championship". "We hadn't had the cleanest run through practice, and I just knew putting the lap together would be crucial, as always".
"This has actually been a really hard weekend because my grandad died on Thursday morning", he said.
Ferrari team chief Maurizio Arrivabene also promised a continuing scrap for the teams' title.
'Firstly I want to say a big thank you to all the fans making the Mexican Grand Prix as special as it is.
"He drove superb all year. We had our chances, but in the end we were not good enough".
