Verstappen looking to Canada
ARROWS driver Jos Verstappen will aim to repeat last year's performance in the Canadian Grand Prix when he returns to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve this weekend.
Dutchman Verstappen benefited from changeable weather conditions last year to finish fifth in Montreal and he is confident he can repeat that points-scoring performance to add to his one-point tally in this campaign.
"It was very good for us last year when it rained half way through the race and we were able to finish fifth," said Verstappen. "I like the chicanes and I like the fact that it's a circuit where you have to brake very late."
Verstappen's team-mate Enrique Bernoldi will have to spend time getting to know the circuit but he is confident of an enjoyable weekend in his first trip to the event.
"I haven't raced there before, but I hope it won't take me long to get used to the track," said Bernoldi, who added: "I've heard a lot about the city and the track and am sure I will enjoy it."
