Toto Wolff has said Mercedes needs to 'stay humble and keep pushing' or else 'they might get bitten' in Canada.

Mercedes took yet another 1-2 finish in Monaco last weekend to maintain its dominant start to F1 2014, although the tension between drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton did reach a new level after the former took that controversial pole position.

Speaking ahead of the seventh round in the 2014 F1 World Championship, Wolff added that he is looking forward now to seeing the 'next chapter' in that story.

"We are pleased to head to Canada on the back of another strong weekend in Monaco. We went into that race convinced that our rivals could outperform us and that's how we worked to prepare for the weekend: like we were the underdogs. So we were pleased to see that we still had a good advantage at the front of the field," said the head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport.

"The team is operating at a very high level right now but we need to keep the ball flat, stay humble and keep pushing," he added.

"On paper, you might say that Canada is the kind of circuit that should suit our package. But we don't have a crystal ball and we have been bitten by that way of thinking in the past," he continued.

"We know that our rivals are getting closer and that we will need to extract every bit of potential to deliver a strong performance in Montreal.

"Lewis has a fantastic track record in Canada [and has won there three times], while Nico has the momentum from his win in Monaco. We are all looking forward [now] to the next chapter in the story of this season," Wolff concluded.
