Glock wants to go on the 'attack' in Monaco

Timo Glock: Monaco is a possibility for smaller teams as there are so many different factors which can come into play and situations which are out of your control

Marussia's Timo Glock is hoping to be able to 'attack' this weekend as F1 gears up for the Monaco Grand Prix.

Glock has struggled in recent races with car balance issues and he knows it will be vital to solve those problems, if he is to stand any chance of exploiting the unpredictability of the event.

“For my side I hope we will show that we have got on top of the car balance issues which have affected my car in the last two races,” Glock said ahead of the sixth round in the 2012 F1 World Championship. “I love Monaco so it will be fantastic to have a good car and really attack the race weekend. I can't wait to arrive there and get going.

“Monaco is, every time, a very special weekend. It's the first real street circuit and always a big event; a big show. It is also a possibility for smaller teams as there are so many different factors which can come into play and situations which are out of your control more than any other circuit. If we have a trouble-free lead up to the weekend, then things can go well on race day with what are normally quite a few opportunities presenting themselves.”

Glock's team-mate Charles Pic meanwhile can't wait to get his first taste of Monte Carlo in an F1 car. He will be keen to get to the finish too, after mechanical problems sidelined him in Spain and Bahrain.

“Monaco is special and one of the races I've been most looking forward to in my debut season. Nothing can prepare you for a challenge like this - despite my GP2 experience here - and I can't wait to taste it for myself when running gets underway on Thursday,” he confirmed.

“The track is very unforgiving, so I hope to come away from the weekend feeling like I did a good job there. The last race came to a disappointing end for me and we need to get back to the good reliability we were enjoying, as this is one of our great strengths and will be key to maintaining our 10th place in the Constructors' Championship.

“It looks like a busy weekend off-track also, but I intend to enjoy every moment of the experience.”
