Adrian Sutil says he heads to this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix with the aim of ending his and Sauber's points drought.

Sauber has yet to score a point in 2014 with Sutil finishing the Spanish Grand Prix in a lowly 17th position.

But the German has occasionally starred in Monaco - as he did in 2013 when he battled his way to fifth place when driving for Force India.

"The Monaco Grand Prix is a very nice event every year," he said.

"I really like the track. For us, the most important aspect will be that our car works well and we can achieve a good performance. My objective is to travel back home with some points in my pocket.

"Looking back, I have good memories from the races in Monte Carlo as I collected some points almost every year. Last year it was an exciting race for me which I finished in fifth position. It is always a special Grand Prix, and I am looking forward to it."

Team-mate Esteban Gutierrez says Sauber must have a stable C33 if they are to score points.

"As the track has many slow speed corners, we need to have a stable car," he said.

"Our focus will be to get things sorted out and to make sure we are on target. What I like the most in Monte Carlo is driving on the narrow track between the guardrails. It is very challenging as you don’t have a lot of space, and for a perfect lap you get very close to the barriers. The closer you get, the more you are pushing to the limit, so using every centimetre of the track."
