Trulli Hopes to Spring Monaco Surprise

Toyota driver Jarno Trulli is hoping to spring a surprise at this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix at the Monte Carlo circuit

Last year's winner, however, is refusing to set any targets for the race at the principality.

"I haven't set objectives for myself," Trulli told Gazzetta dello Sport. "I'll take whatever comes, but with the certainty that each of us is giving his best.

"Here in Monaco I see McLaren and Renault doing well, and Ferrari too if they pick the right tyres. But this year my mood is very different: I'm extremely happy and so we might surprise everyone once more."

Trulli and his Toyota team have been one of the surprises of the season so far, the Italian driver finishing on the podium three times. He is also second in the Championship behind Renault's Fernando Alonso.

"The team surprised everyone, including myself," said Trulli. "When I got here the only thing I noticed was that the mentality for the final result was missing.

"Now, regardless how it's going to end, we are already satisfied of our season, and there are still 14 races to go. I feel one year ahead.

"This team has the potential to win the World Championship; I don't know how and when, but it'll come."
