Felipe Nasr is confident Sauber will bounce back from a difficult few rounds with a challenge for the points in the Canadian Grand Prix.

Though Nasr scored a point in Monaco, Sauber has proven relatively down on the mid-field pace over the last three races as the development race moves on.

However, the Brazilian has higher hopes for his first visit to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, saying the characteristics of the circuit should suit the Sauber C34 with its strong top speed.
