The strides we have made in recent races have been down to various different things coming together and starting to click, according to Valtteri.
It's not always easy, of course, but it's all about trying to iron out mistakes and areas of weakness, something our Finn believes we did well in Japan to secure a 1-2 finish.
"For me, it feels like we have just been able to step-by-step improve everything," he said. "Once all the areas are getting better, the car getting better, the team operating better, everything just starts to click and come together.
"It's been very nice to be a part of this. How efficient the team can be in the race weekend, especially in tricky conditions, you see the result.
"Of course, we are still humans, we can make mistakes, but we are trying to absolutely minimise any mistakes and I think this weekend we did a good job in that respect.
"The car has been getting better each race weekend and that comes from all the work in the race team and all the flat-out work in the factories.
"We wouldn't be in this position without thousands of people pushing everything they have. It's been impressive. The competition has motivated even more."
