Adrian Sutil appears positive about this weekend's Italian Grand Prix, believing he can put in a similar performance to last year's fourth place finish.

With the Italian circuit demanding low downforce and high speed, Sutil is confident that the team have the car to score points, citing a good qualifying session as crucial.

"We don't have the top speed advantage we had last year so it's going to be another close weekend, but we do know that we are amongst the quickest and that gives us a big chance to be in Q3 and then getting in the points."

Vijay Mallya expressed similar expectations and believes the team needs to perform well during the final part of the season after their disappointing no-points-scoring results in Germany and Hungary before the mid-season break.

"Of course we know that the on track fights will intensify and it's not going to be easy to consolidate our position but we feel the momentum is with us now" Mallya said. "Adrian and Tonio both raced very well and we've been given a real boost by the double points - we needed it after a couple of frustrating weekends before the summer break."
