Marussia team boss John Booth is expecting Monaco to throw up more surprises this weekend.

Booth will be hoping the Banbury-based outfit can make the most of any dramas to improve on Australia, where Timo Glock notched up their best result of the year so far, when he brought his MR01 home in 14th place. Speaking ahead of the sixth round in the 2012 F1 World Championship, Booth added that weather could also be a factor.

"I think everyone is excited to see what surprises the Monaco Grand Prix will bring this weekend," he said.

"We've had a bit of everything in the first five races, including five different winners, and Monaco always throws up something different. It is turning into quite a season for the fans and long may this continue.

"This race is all about the drivers because it is such a uniquely demanding track that calls for absolute precision and commitment.

"As such, it is down to us to give Timo and Charles [Pic] a car they can be absolutely confident with and, whilst Charles has had a relatively trouble-free time with his car balance thus far, Timo's car has been a little more troublesome in recent races.

"We hope we will find that we have conquered those issues when running gets underway on Thursday so they can both enjoy what is always an incredible experience for the drivers.

"The weather could be quite interesting too; the early part of the week certainly presents rather less pleasant weather than one expects, nor are improved conditions guaranteed for the balance of the weekend. It promises to be a very interesting race all round."
