Kamui Kobayashi insists that Caterham is fighting harder than ever despite a difficult start to their 2014 campaign.

Caterham has yet to score a point in over four years of competition and lost out to perennial rivals Marussia in the previous round in Monaco, with Jules Bianchi finishing in ninth place.

Marussia's result means that Caterham is now firmly rooted to the foot of the Constructors' championship ahead of this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix.

"At the moment the [weather] forecasts look dry For Friday, Saturday and Sunday but if that changes it could definitely be in our favour and we need to make sure we’re ready to take anything that comes our way," he said.

"I was in the factory last week to start preparations for Canada and even though Monaco didn’t end for me as we’d planned, despite us doing everything we could, everyone is still fighting harder than ever.

"Crazy races like we had last week don’t come too often, but when they do we need to be ready and after talking to a lot of the team last week I know that they are all focused on making progress, not looking back at what might have been.

"I’ve had a couple of points finishes in Canada in 2011 and 2012 and it would obviously be cool to have the same again this year – as I say, that will probably take a crazy race but if that happens I’ll be prepared ready, as will the whole team."
