Manor Marussia driver Roberto Merhi says he was given a boost by his performance in the recent Monaco Grand Prix.

Merhi had trailed team-mate Will Stevens across the opening races but beat the Briton to the chequered flag for the first time around the streets of the Principality.

Merhi, who endured a troublesome time in Formula Renault 3.5 at the weekend, says he is eager to build on his Monaco result in Canada.

"The races are coming thick and fast now and it feels like we are in a good rhythm, which certainly made a difference for me in Monaco," he said.

"I was very happy with my performance there. I’m looking forward to Canada next, as the track looks pretty challenging but also a lot of fun; a real adrenaline rush.

"The mix of long straights and really slow sections is interesting and I know the weather can play a big part in mixing things up a bit.

"Monaco gave me a real boost, so I can’t wait to be back in the car at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, picking up where I left off there in performance terms and extracting as much as possible from the current package."
