Meanwhile, McLaren is depending hugely on its Singapore upgrade package to keep the team in championship contention. Red Bull is expected to perform strongly at all the final five races and, with Mark Webber currently leading the drivers' championship, McLaren will have to hope the upgrades make a significant gain to stand a chance of challenging the Milton Keynes squad for the championship.
