Surprise Monaco star Adrian Sutil believes Spyker can carry the improved pace it showed at Monaco over to this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal, despite the disparate nature of the circuits.

The German, who stunned onlookers by setting the fastest time in Saturday's wet free practice session in Monte Carlo, was encouraged by the Spyker's race pace and says the target is now to finish ahead of the cars he was fighting with when he crashed out of the event.

"We did see an improvement in the race and put in a good performance," he said.

"The car was quick and we could race and outqualify other cars, but it's a shame we didn't finish.

"I still did over 50 laps though and got a good feel for how things were going.

"We were able to fight with the Aguri and the Toyota, which was very interesting," he added. "I think we could be in the same position again in Canada."

Spyker was one of several teams to test at Paul Ricard prior to Monaco in preparation for Canada and Sutil reckons the team made solid progress on its low downforce configuration.

"We did make some improvements in the test and the performance was overall quite good," he said.

"We used the low downforce set-up on the long straight, but it's not that similar to Montreal as there are not as many chicanes.

"Hopefully the developments we found will work in Montreal though and we will continue at the same rate we did in Monaco. The goal has definitely got to be to keep cars behind us, have a clean race and get to the finish."

Team-mate Christijan Albers agrees that Spyker has taken a step forward in performance but warned the team is still chasing the pack in key areas.

"We know that we are still lacking in top speed and Canada is a high speed track, but we tested some issues that will help us in the braking areas and with balance and set-up," he said.

"We are always pushing for a good result. It's not always easy, but we have to go for it and push - the guys back at the factory really deserve it.

"At this point in the season we have to wait for the B-spec car to move forward a little bit more, but now, as a team, we have to concentrate on getting every small detail right to be competitive."


This is good news for formula one. Spyker will be more competitive and battle the cars infront, not just make up the numbers. It will be good to see them up there with the aguri's.
