Lotus's early form has made them the most improved team in the field in year-on-year comparisons. Finn Kimi Raikkonen has delivered three podium finishes, including a victory in Australia, and the team overall has scored 36 points more this season than it did in the same four races last year.

Raikkonen alone has improved his tally by 33 points to emerge as a serious contender for the drivers' world title.

"But we will all bring a nice package and I promise you that the development of this car is going very well."

Lotus are not the only team enjoying an improved points tally.

Mercedes, with Brition Lewis Hamilton showing the way, have improved by 27 points.

By contrast, McLaren, the team he left behind, have dropped 69 points over four races and need to see a sensational return from the promised major new upgrade they intend to run in Spain.

"Maybe it is a character flaw, but I have made it reasonably clear from Australia that I am not even talking about 2014 at the moment," said team boss Martin Whitmarsh, when asked if he was abandoning this season and switching early to ensure he has a car ready for 2014.

"One of my weaknesses is I want to be competitive. I want to get back to the front and I want to come to grands prix thinking we can win. We haven't thought that for the last four races and we want to get it back."
