Red Bull boss Christian Horner has said that Formula One would suffer a great loss if Ron Dennis were to retire.

Current paddock rumours are that Dennis will leave his post at the end of the season, however nothing has yet materialized.

"I only have the utmost respect of Ron," Horner said. We've gone head-to-head and fought over sponsors, engineers, drivers, whatever, but he's always played fair.

"It would be a great loss if he's not involved, certainly for McLaren and also Formula 1. What he has achieved in Formula 1 is quite remarkable," added Horner. "What he has built McLaren into is an example to us all.

"He's a passionate man and he argues for the right things for Formula 1, sometimes to the detriment of his own team."

Dennis is the most successful team principal of all time, having held his post since 1981 and oversaw the success they went through with such drivers as Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost and Mika Haikkenen.
