''I said after Turkey that I just wanted to have a good weekend - a good practice, qualifying and then race, and we really nailed it in Monaco. It's really boosted my confidence knowing we can do it,'' Sutil said. ''Montreal is a track I like a lot. Like Monaco, it is different to anywhere else we visit over the season, with long, fast straights going into deep hairpins that mean you really need to be precise,'' he added.

''Last year it was not such a good result for the team, but with that experience I know what to avoid. The city is also fantastic, so overall I am really looking forward to going there.'' Sutil has still not recovered from the shocking incident in Monaco where he missed a career high fourth place finish after a crash with reigning world champion Kimi Raikkonen.

''Of course the ultimate result in Monaco was disappointing, but eventually I realised what we had achieved in Monaco was really special. We had the race under control and were running a strong fourth with many cars behind us - it's not everyday that happens, especially for us,'' Sutil rued. ''My feelings after the race were very difficult to explain, I was frustrated and upset, but now - a week later - it's really made me motivated to prove that Monaco was not just a one-off.''
