Perez, Stroll boosted by big upgrade in Singapore

Racing Point will bring a significant upgrade package to the Singapore Grand Prix which it is hoped will return them to their spot at the front of the midfield.

Hamstrung by last year's financial problems, Racing Point are yet to feel the effects of Lawrence Stroll's takeover on the track, and sit seventh on the constructors' standings, 37 points behind fourth-placed McLaren.

Historically strong at the power tracks, Racing Point took good points from Spa and Monza, but the team endured a Singapore Grand Prix to forget last year as Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon collided on lap one and the Mexican went on to finish a lowly 16th after a further tangle with Sergey Sirotkin.

However, team principal Otmar Szafnauer says a raft of updates could see them back on form in Marina Bay.

"We expected to be good at Spa, which happened," Szafnauer said. "We expected to be good in Italy. And we also expect to be pretty good at Singapore because we've got some tricks up our sleeves.

"It's another new update. A big update.

"And then from there on out, we will just learn about the car, get the set-up right and we will be at the top of the midfield where we are used to being, and I would say we belong."

Perez has challenged Racing Point to end 2019 with the fourth-fastest car on the grid and Szafnauer echoed the Mexican's words.
