Mark Webber said Red Bull's one-two finish in the Chinese Grand Prix makes up for all the missed opportunities the team has suffered over the years.
The team dominated in wet conditions at Shanghai today, with Sebastian Vettel and Webber pushing the previously dominant Brawns back to third and fourth.
"It means a huge amount," said Webber. "Our team has been through a lot, a lot of results slipped through our fingers."
Red Bull appeared to have the fastest car on the very wet track, but Webber emphasised that the drivers had extracted the most from their package.
"We capitalised on a car that worked well but pushed each other hard during the race," he said.
"The conditions were tough for the whole grand prix. It got a bit better in the middle and then a bit interesting at the end. It was a very tough race, extremely rewarding to get this result and personally for myself, it is the best result of my career."
"I hope to go one step better in the future, this is the way forward."
He also paid tribute to team owner Dietrich Mateschitz's efforts since buying the former Jaguar squad in 2005.
"Thinking of Dietrich has done, to get his first one-two it is a credit to him," said Webber.
