Michael Schumacher believes Mercedes will be on track for a good result in Monaco as the street circuit will suit his W03.
The seven-time World Champion has had some mixed performances this season as while he has looked to have pace, he has lacked the results.
The German has bagged just two points from five grands prix and could struggle in Monaco as he is set to begin the grand prix with a five grid slot penalty for his Spanish GP crash with Bruno Senna.
Schumacher, though, is determined to "make the best" of the weekend on a circuit that while dangerous, he reckons is "fun" to drive.
"Monaco is just a circuit of its own very unique character. In a way, you could look at it with a big portion of irony with regards to the contradiction that, for so many years we have successfully campaigned for more track safety, and then we deliberately race in Monaco," he said.
"But in my view this is justifiable once a year, especially as the circuit is really so much fun to drive. Every time you go there, you just look forward to finally getting out and driving the track.
"Of course, knowing that I will lose five positions on the grid does not add to this feeling but this just means that I will have to try even harder.
"I'm actually quite confident that we should look reasonably good in Monaco due to the hard work that everybody in the team is putting into the development of our car. So let's make the best out of the weekend."
