Force India chairman Vijay Mallya says the team will head to the Canadian Grand Prix "full of confidence" after securing a podium finish in Monaco.
Sergio Perez finished third in a dramatic race, with Nico Hulkenberg also scoring points in sixth, and Mallya believes that the result will give the team the confidence it needs to compete in Montreal and beyond.
"Monaco was a very significant weekend for us," he said."It's one of the most famous races in the world and I felt incredibly proud to see Checo standing on the podium. It's a memory that will stay with me forever.
"It was a brilliant team effort and a much deserved reward for all the hard work that has gone on behind the scenes to keep pushing us forward. There was some late drama too with Nico snatching sixth place on the line in a race where the strategy didn't allow him to show his true potential.
"The Monaco performance means we come to Canada full of confidence.
"The 23 points we claimed in Monaco lifted us to fifth place in the championship. I've been saying all season that our luck needs to change and I hope that Monaco represents a turning point.
"We now have some momentum and I believe we can push on and keep racking up the points in the races to come.
"Montreal should play to our strengths and I'm feeling optimistic that we can get both cars well inside the top ten in qualifying and the race."
