In this paper we establish some sufficient conditions for the exponential stability of the stationary solution to a two-dimensional Navier-Stokes model with delay in the forcing term. We are able to cover several situation in a single formulation by using functional formulation for the delay. In particular, our results improve some existing ones in the literature, which were only proved for variable delay.
