Sergio Perez says Force India is doing a good job at maximising its opportunities as he converted his grid position to take seventh place at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Force India is currently awaiting a substantial upgrade to its VJM08 ahead of the British Grand Prix but Perez was able to pick up six points for the Silverstone-based team around the streets of the Principality.

"I’m very happy right now," he said. "As a team we’ve done a fantastic job all weekend and seventh place is the result of all this hard work.

"For me it was a normal race – very straightforward and quiet, which is strange for Monaco. I was racing on my own for most of the race because the cars ahead were able to pull a gap on me and I had space to the cars behind.

"It was difficult to keep concentration for 78 laps, but after the safety car I was on fresh super soft tyres and it was really good fun. I was able to attack Kimi [Raikkonen], but there wasn’t an opportunity to get the position.

"It’s a very important result for the whole team and gives us six points for the championship. It means I’ve scored points in half the races this season, which shows we’ve done a good job of maximising our opportunities."
