Adrian Sutil says Sauber's position in the constructors' championship is "not the real truth" as it remains behind Marussia.

Jules Bianchi's two points in the Monaco Grand Prix moved Marussia ahead of Sauber in to ninth place in the constructors', a position it has yet to relinquish. With the number of races ticking down with Sauber yet to score a point, Sutil says there is no point in the team focusing on Marussia as its result in Monaco was an anomaly.

"It's not necessary really to focus on them because we need to score points," Sutil said. "We need points and if we just focus on them and try to beat them then we're not in the points.

"It's a little bit tricky because they did a really good race in Monaco - a lot of retirements there and they scored two points - but we have the faster car. We have much more speed."

Asked if he was concerned that the opportunity to score points may never arise this season, Sutil replied: "Maybe, who knows?

"But it's a shame that we only get points for the first ten. We're close to the top ten all the time but Marussia is in front of us in the constructors' championship. It's not the real truth. But we push on, we have to get some points, that's for sure."
