Mercedes' German driver Nico Rosberg took a crushing first grand prix win, and a first for a works Mercedes team since 1955, in Shanghai after securing a first pole position by a hefty margin.
"I think there's been a lot said and a lot of fuss about it (the wing)," Horner said. "They've optimised and capitalised on it so inevitably now we'll all pursue our own solutions."
'Personal ambition' fulfilled for brawnShanghai: Of the many Formula One victories that Ross Brawn has celebrated over an extraordinary career spanning several decades, Nico Rosberg's first with Mercedes in China offered a particular satisfaction.
The burly, bespectacled Briton, who followed Michael Schumacher from Benetton to Ferrari as technical director and then won a title with his own Brawn team in 2009 before it became Mercedes, was barely a toddler when Mercedes last won a grand prix as a works team. "As someone reminded me, I was one year old when we last won a race," the 57-year-old said after Sunday's triumph.
"So it is a very special victory and made all the sweeter because it is Nico's first. And I am really delighted, because I told him once that it was my ambition to help him win his first race."
