Two seventh positions (from Nico Hülkenberg in Australia and Sergio Perez in Spain) were the best background to Force India before the Grand Prix of Monaco. But the roulette of the Principality came to compensate for hardship prior to the team angloindia, that for the first time this season got their two cars in the points, with the prize added to the splendid podium finish for the mexican driver.
23 points boosted the team up to fifth place in the constructors’, and that for the head of the team, Vijay Mallya, represent a fair reward for all the work behind the scenes and the possible start of a good run of results.
Monaco was a brilliant work of computer and a deserved reward for the efforts he has made to continue making progress; it is a memory I will never forget and a result that we do get to Canada full of confidence: I have said before that our luck had to change and I hope that suppose to be a turning point. We arrived in good time to keep pressing and racking up points in the coming races. Montreal should suit the strengths of our car, and I am optimistic about the possibility of placing our two cars in the top ten, both in qualifying and in the race.
Sergio Perez, still with the memory of Monaco fresh in his mind, believes that his car is in position to offer more satisfactions in one of its circuits are preferred, where already on the podium in the race of 2012.
there is No better confidence booster than a race as the Monaco. When I was little, I always dreamed of up to that podium and for me it was very special to be able to celebrate with the team, especially after the bad luck we had had. Montreal is one of my circuits favorite and I believe we can be fast there, because the changes we made to the car have really made a big difference, give me good feelings and the confidence to tighten, which is very important there.
Nico Hülkenberg is also anxious to extend the good run on the asphalt of Gilles Villeneuve. The sixth post snatched in extremis Nico Rosberg was not finished satisfy you and hopes to maintain the competitiveness in order to improve it in Canada.
Monaco was frustrating, despite achieving a very good sixth place, because we lost a good chance of being above. We found the sweet spot of the car, which was really good all weekend. Now I think we can keep that performance in Montreal, a track that I love to lead, and be just as competitive with some tires that tend to end more soft of the range but that we already worked out well in Monaco.
