Alex Wurz is looking for more of the same when the Formula 1 World Championship resumes in Canada, the Austrian travelling to Montreal on the back of his first points of the season in Monaco.

Going a long way to making up for a difficult start to the season since his return to full-time competition with Williams, Wurz was delighted to get himself off the mark but is now searching for more consistency.

Key to this will be Wurz's efforts in qualifying, the area in which he has arguably struggled most this season, as he bids to make the top ten shootout for the first time.

"The fight to get into the top ten in qualifying, and to get into points-scoring positions, will be as close as ever," he said. "Canada is another city grand prix. I enjoy these kinds of races a lot because the atmosphere is just more intense than at some "standard" race tracks. In terms of track layout, Canada requires much less downforce than we had in Monaco, so it remains to be seen which team will have the best downforce package for the race weekend.

Still, Wurz, who famously rolled at the first corner back in 1998, goes to Montreal anticipating plenty of unknowns, not least from an increasingly crowded midfield which he expects will make the weekend a potentially tough one.

"A forecast is quite difficult for Canada. The only thing I can tell you for sure is that it will be very close again between the teams, so it will be yet another hard Grand Prix. At the front, I expect an equal match between Ferrari and McLaren, and they will probably be closer than they were in Monaco."
