Following his run to tenth from the pit-lane in Monaco, Carlos Sainz has set his sights on more points in what will be his first visit to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Canada.

Another new venue for the Spanish rookie, Sainz says he is looking forward to getting his first laps around the iconic Canadian Grand Prix venue, particularly given its reputation for overtaking and exciting races.

Currently 12th in the overall standings having scored in all-but-two races this season, Sainz is looking for more of the same in Montreal.

"I was in Montreal last year, as I went to watch the Grand Prix, and I really enjoyed spending time in the city, which I liked a lot and the track itself looks very interesting. I'm looking forward to my first experience of driving the track, which looks as though it provides some good overtaking opportunities.

"We will again have the Soft and Supersoft tyres and we can expect high degradation, so it could be a challenging weekend on that front."
