Jules Bianchi has urged Marussia to build on the success of scoring its first points in the Monaco Grand Prix.

Having joined the grid in 2010, Marussia had failed to score in four full seasons prior to this year. However, that run was broken when Bianchi finished ninth in Monaco to score two points which are also the first of his own career. However, Bianchi said that there was still room for improvement with the car and said the team should not get carried away.

"We know that Monaco is a bit of a special track," Bianchi said.

"For sure we have improved the car. We saw a step forward in the Barcelona test, the car was much more balanced and that's what made it much better for this race. Obviously now we have to keep our feet on the ground.

"We scored points, which is good, but we know that without good luck we will not be able to be in the points. So we need to calm down a bit after tonight and keep working to improve the car because for sure we still have some improvement to make."

However, Bianchi couldn't hide his delight that he was the driver to finally score the first point for the team.

"Of course it's really positive for me. It has been a really tough start to the season for me, the first three races were really difficult but obviously I needed a really good result like this. And the team too, they've been waiting for this for four years and now we have done that so I am really happy to be the driver who scored the first points for Marussia."
