They have had some really unfortunate timing. They pulled out in 2008 leaving the team days from shutting up shop, only to be rescued by team manager Ross Brawn who threw Mercedes engines in the back and won the driver and team championships. Then they came back as an engine supplier for the turbo hybrid era and after years of failure announced they were leaving, so Red Bull took over the project, and won the drivers championship and are looking like they're going to win both championships this year.
They have a real knack for quitting just before hitting paydirt.

On the other hand, they certainly cashed in on the late '80s with McLaren.

And they did quite well with Williams as well. Nigel Mansell would have been champion in 1986 had his tyre not exploded.
Or if he hadn't managed to keep his car on the track when it exploded. No safety cars back then so had Nige left it in the wall on the straight there's a good chance the race would have been red flagged and him being declared the winner and therefore champion.

They knew what they had at Red Bull with Max.  It was clear his title was just a matter of time.
