Jarno Trulli has said that he will be looking to put things right in Fuji next weekend, when the circus arrives in Japan for the 15th round in the 2007 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.

Trulli and Toyota have had a pretty miserable season to date and thus far the Italian has only scored 7 points, while the team itself has taken just 12.

Furthermore despite getting his TF107 through to the top-ten shoot-out in the last five events in succession, Jarno hasn't scored any points since the United States Grand Prix in June and he now wants to turn things around and there would be nowhere better to do that than at Toyota's home circuit.

"Our true pace has been reasonably competitive recently but we haven't been able to come away with the results. Obviously I would like to put that right, starting with Fuji, Toyota's home race," he confirmed.

"We have seen that we are capable of scoring points but the fight is so close in the midfield that you have to run a nearly perfect race.

"Everyone has been working just as hard as they always have and I would like the team to see some reward before we go into the winter test programme and turn our thoughts to 2008. If that could start at Fuji, in front of the Japanese fans, it would be great."

Asked if he is looking forward to the event at Fuji, he added that it should be 'interesting', especially as Formula 1 has only been there twice - and that was back in 1976 and 1977.

"I always enjoyed racing at Suzuka but Fuji Speedway is a very historic circuit and it's great to be going there," he continued.

"As always with a circuit that is new on the schedule it will be a case of gathering data and analyzing it efficiently on Friday and Saturday to give us the best possible base for the race. I enjoy the challenge of a new circuit and I am very motivated for the next race," he concluded.
