Timo Glock has set his sights on scoring points at the Italian Grand Prix this Sunday, the latest round in the 2008 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.

Glock finished in eighth place in Belgium last weekend and picked up the final point, only to lose it post-race when the stewards handed him a 25-second penalty for ignoring waved yellow flags.

That dropped him to ninth in his Toyota TF108 and while it was frustrating the German's focus is very much on Monza now.

Indeed while he has had mixed results at the 5.793 kilometre track over the years, the test there last month has left him feeling upbeat and convinced he can get his fourth points finish of the year.

"I have good memories of Monza from last season, when I finished on the podium twice in GP2 and won the sprint race, but I would prefer to forget Monza 2006 when I hurt my wrist," he noted.

"I certainly hope this year will give me more fun memories! I quite enjoy racing at Monza because it is an extremely fast track and as a racing driver you always like to drive fast.

"It was good to get experience of Monza with the TF108 during our test a couple of weeks ago.

"We have a totally different package for this race and we got a lot of information which should really help us make a positive start on Friday. My goal will be to score points. I am looking forward to the challenge," he summed-up.
