After his early exit from the Monaco Grand Prix, Sahara Force India's Sergio Perez is keen to set the record straight at a track he enjoys more than most.

The Canadian Grand Prix was the setting for one of Perez's most memorable performances, and the Mexican is keen to get back into action at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve after seeing a promising Monaco weekend fall apart following a clash with Jenson Button on lap one.

The DNF broke a run of three points finishes for Perez - a record that could have been 100 per cent had it not been for his failure to start in Malaysia - and the former Sauber and McLaren pilot is eager to return to his previous form.

"After a very disappointing race in Monaco, I just want to get back in the car and get the best possible result for my team," he insisted, "Points will be the target."

Expecting a strong Mexican representation amongst the Montreal crowd, Perez will be hoping to reprise his debut Canadian Grand Prix, one of a few performances which helped bring him to the attention of teams further up the grid.

"I really enjoy racing in Canada, and I have very good memories from Montreal," he confirmed, "It's another track where you need good top speed and traction from the slow corners. You also have to maximise the limits of the track to be quick and get really close to the walls, so it's easy to make a mistake. It's hard to overtake there, but the final chicane is definitely the best opportunity.

"In 2012, I started at the back of the grid and managed to finish in third place. It was an amazing race and my one-stop strategy worked perfectly. It was my second podium in F1 and a great feeling - one I hope to experience again soon. As a track, it should be suited to the strengths of our car so we have to maximise this opportunity."
