Will Stevens' impressive start to the 2015 F1 season faltered slightly in Monaco, but he is keen to continue racking up the finishes as the championship heads to Montreal.
Along with Manor-Marussia team-mate Roberto Merhi, Stevens has seen the chequered flag at every race this season, but has come no closer to scoring than the 15th place he took on his first start with the team, in China.
The Shanghai circuit, like those in Australia and Malaysia were new to the Briton, and this weekend's trip across the Atlantic to Canada thrusts the Renault World Series graduate into similarly unfamiliar surroundings, although he is confident that he can get to grips with the circuit quite quickly.
“After the luxury of a couple of races at tracks I'm quite familiar with, it's a step back outside the comfort zone for Montreal and the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve,” Stevens confirmed, “I'm pleased with the way I acclimatise to new circuits, although this is certainly one to be respected as it's pretty unique - a lot of fun but with more than its fair share of challenges.
“It has that street circuit feel like Monaco, because the walls are so close, but the similarity ends there and it's a track where we really have to look after the brakes - and, of course, the right hand side of the car at the 'Wall of Champions'!”
Stevens' Monaco weekend unfolded after first lap contact with Marcus Ericsson's Sauber, leading to him being beaten by team-mate Merhi for the first time, but the Briton is determined to be back in front this time around.
“Avoiding [the Wall] will be my first objective but, bigger picture, I hope to have a stronger race than I experienced in Monaco - although that was another great team result with both cars taking the chequered flag.”
