Mercedes and Ferrari have unleashed upgrades over the past two grands prix that they hope will finally give Red Bull a run for their money.
So far, Max Verstappen's stiffest competition has been his own teammate Sergio Perez.
But, last time out, Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and George Russell completed the podium alongside Verstappen.
It gave hope to Mercedes fans - and doubtless their own staff - that a victory over Red Bull might be just around the corner.
