AlphaTauri may be languishing at the bottom of the constructors championship but since the substantial upgrade of its AT04 car in Singapore two races ago, it is now performing at a higher level than the teams immediately above it in the points table. With six races left, the race is on to catch and overhaul the Alfa Romeo and Haas teams.

At both Singapore and Suzuka – two contrasting tracks – the AlphaTauri has made it into Q3, having done so in only two of the previous 14 races. Its average deficit to the front before the Singapore upgrade was 1.6s compared to 1.1s in the combined Singapore and Japan events.
