Sahara Force India team's German driver Nico Hulkenberg is hoping for another strong showing, while Mexican Sergio Perez is aiming to resume his points winning streak in the Formula One Canadian GP on Sunday.

Hulkenberg charged through the grid after starting the race from 11th position to finish fifth, ahead of McLaren's Jenson Button. This was Hulkenberg's sixth point scoring finish in as many races.

The German is one of the most consistent drivers on the grid and is currently placed fifth in the drivers' standing with 47 points, behind Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull.

"It's my best run of results in Formula 1 and I'm really enjoying the racing," Hulkenberg said. "I've said many times that consistency is our strength and we showed that again in Monaco with another fifth place."

The 26-year-old said he is expecting the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve to favour Force India and pointed out the tyre allocation for the grand prix will suit their car's characteristics.

"It's difficult to say how we will perform in Montreal," Hulkenberg said. "In theory it should be one of the better tracks for us, but things change from race to race. It's good that we have the soft and supersoft tyres again because I think the softer tyres are more suited to our car."

Perez, after starting the Canadian GP in 2012 from the back of the grid, scored his second podium with the Sauber F1 team, but last year he ended outside the points with McLaren. The Mexican said he is heading into the weekend with some good memories and hoping for a strong race.

"I have very good memories from Montreal. In 2012 I started at the back of the grid and managed to finish in third place," Perez said. "It was an amazing race and my one-stop strategy worked perfectly. It was my second podium in Formula One and a great feeling - one I hope to experience again soon."

The 24-year-old Mexican crashed out in the opening lap of the Monaco GP, when he was tapped by Button at the Mirabeau corner. Perez said he is expecting to get back in amongst the points after an early end to his race last time.

"After a very disappointing race in Monaco, I just want to get back in the car and get the best possible result for my team. Points will be the target," he said.

Force India team boss Vijay Mallya is also expecting his team to remain competitive in Canada, after a string of impressive performances this season.

"We've been in the points in every race, which is very motivating for everyone in the team and helps pump us up even more," Vijay Mallya said. "There are some strong teams behind us, but we are holding our own and will continue pushing hard."
