Michael Schumacher wants to make his trip to Montreal "especially worthwhile" as he looks to follow up his Monaco pole with Canadian success.
In the third season of his comeback, Schumacher finally tasted some success when he achieved pole position at the previous outing in Monaco.
The German dropped to sixth on the grid due to his Spanish penalty and failed to see the finish line due to fuel pressure problem.
However, his showing in Monaco has boosted Schumacher's confidence and he heads to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve seeking a "worthwhile" result.
"The Canadian Grand Prix is all about the great atmosphere at the track and in the city. The Canadian fans make the whole weekend into a real celebration and, for us drivers, it's great to feel their passion for motorsport," he said.
"That gives us a natural boost and it would be great to give them even more reasons to celebrate at the end of the weekend.
"The race in Montreal is usually action-packed, like we saw last year. The characteristics of the circuit should suit us, and we are counting on our car performing well there.
"As I said: a trip to Montreal is always worth it. And let's hope we can make our trip this year especially worthwhile."
Meanwhile, Mercedes motorsport VP Norbert Haug is hoping that it is a case of seven is the lucky number for Schumacher next weekend.
"As his fastest qualifying time in Monaco demonstrated, Michael has the speed to compete at the front," Haug said.
"He has won seven times in Montreal, his Silver Arrow carries number seven and Canada will be race seven of the 2012 World Championship..."
