The F92AT was an updated Ferrari F92A, designed to compete in the final 5 races of the 1992 season. It's name comes from the transverse mounting of the car's new 7-speed gearbox, contrary to a 6-speed longitudinally mounted one on the F92A. The car also featured a more rigid engine mounting and revised front suspension.

The first 3 races, both drivers recorded a DNF. After the Portuguese Grand Prix, Ivan Capelli was replaced by Nicola Larini for the two remaining races of the season, in which both drivers made it to the finish. Alesi though was the only to score points, recording a 5th place finish at Japan and a 4th place in Australia.

Together with the points scored by the F92A, Ferrari ended the season in 4th place in the Constructors' Championship, totalling 21 points.
