Biblatex is configured so that all author names are written in small caps and microtype is set to to adjust the spacing between the small cap letters a la

\SetTracking{ encoding = *, shape = sc }{ 45 } 

and this working pretty well for the document as well as the bibliography, alas it doesn't work for footcites. Is there a way to apply this spacing also for footcites?

What I tried, is

\SetTracking[ context = footcite]{ encoding = *, shape = sc }{ 45 }
\SetTracking[ context = footnote]{ encoding = *, shape = sc }{ 45 }

but it had no effect.
