McLaren came to Singapore with a huge deficit to 2022 rivals, the Alpine F1 team, however, as the French team was only able to manage two DNFs, McLaren took full advantage of the opportunity and is now 5 points ahead of the Enstone-based team.

After 17 rounds, McLaren has got 129 points to its name whereas Alpine, on the other hand, has only got 125 points to show for its efforts.

Lando Norris, just like 2021, has carried the weight of his team almost single-handedly and after Singapore, has amassed an exact 100 points for himself.
