Sutil hopes to do well in Canadian GP

Montreal: After scoring six vital points for his side in the Monaco race, Force India driver Adrian Sutil is keen to improve his record at the Canadian Grand Prix, slated for this weekend.

Sutil, who finished seventh in Monaco, said he wants to do better than the 10th place finish he managed here last season.

"It`s definitely one of my favourite races on the calendar. Although we`ve always been quite quick there, I`ve never really had great results in Canada.

"We usually have good straight-line speed, which is very important in Montreal, but you also need a car that has good stability and grip over curbs. I think experience is important there because it`s quite bumpy and the car moves around a lot, which demands a special way of driving," Sutil said.

Paul di Resta is excited about the race as he has never driven here and is preparing hard in simulator.

"This year`s Montreal race will be a real adventure for me. I`ve never driven the circuit so the priority will be to get up to speed as quickly as possible and learn the track.

"On paper it looks like quite a straightforward circuit with long straights and chicanes, but you never truly know a circuit until you drive it for real," the Scot said.

Team Principal Vijay Mallya underlined the importance of getting points regularly, citing stiff competition from other teams.

"The six points scored will be important for our battle in the world championship because the teams around us are all very competitive. We have a real fight on our hands if we want to catch Sauber and we must continue working hard to maintain
our advantage over Toro Rosso.

"We have been busy in the wind tunnel developing the low downforce spec of aero platform, which will hopefully allow us to challenge for more points," Mallya said.
