Nico Hulkenberg says his current run of results is the best form of his F1 career and is keen to continue with a strong showing in Canada.

Hulkenberg has finished in the points in every race since returning to Force India, as well as recording five finishes in the top six, enough to put him fifth overall in the drivers' standings. His performances have helped Force India rise to fourth in the constructors' championship and Hulkenberg admits he is full of confidence.

"It's my best run of results in Formula One 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. Monaco was not our strongest track, or our weakest track, but we still brought the car home for a great result."

Hulkenberg expects Force India to be in good shape again in Canada this weekend.

"It's difficult to say how we will perform in Montreal. 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.

"As an overall event the Canadian Grand Prix is one of my favourites because of the buzz around the city and the unusual track. To get a quick lap you need good top speed, a car that can attack the curbs and you also have to be brave enough to get close to the walls."
