Romain Grosjean says he "would love" to be Formula One's sixth different winner of the season after a successful start to his Monaco GP weekend.
Although the Lotus driver did not set the pace in either of Thursday's two free practice sessions, he was the most consistent driver.
The Frenchman was second in the morning's session, three-tenths behind Fernando Alonso, and repeated the feat in the afternoon, this time three-tenths adrift of Jenson Button.
It was an impressive showing from Grosjean, who already has one Monaco triumph to his name having claimed the victory at the GP2 feature race in 2009.
"Let's see Sunday," he said when asked about the possibility of a win this Sunday. "It's would be nice.
"I would love to be the surprise here but step-by-step. I think free practice went pretty well, let's see how qualifying goes and then the race.
"When you know a track, even in a different category, it's always easy. It took about five or six laps to set a good lap time, then the second one was quicker and the last one we couldn't do.
"Then in the afternoon, we went quicker again. I think it always takes you one or two laps to get up to speed and then when the car is warm and you are warm then you can go for the lap.
"It's a nice track and with a Formula 1 car it's pretty interesting - I think even better than with the GP2 as the car is more manageable in the corners. And we have a good baseline at the moment, so you enjoy even more the time you spend on the track."
However, the Lotus driver did not spend as much time on the track as he would have wanted as the rain caused havoc on Thursday afternoon.
"I couldn't try the super softs, that may be the only bad point of the day. But at the end of the day normally our car is pretty good on the change of tyre because we keep the same handling.
"So hopefully it's going to be the case here. We're going to put super softs on in P3 then to see what it gives.
"But then it was good as well to do a few laps on the wets to see which parts you can use, which white lines are dangerous and stuff like that.
"You never know here. Now it's sunny and before it was raining...it can change in 10 minutes."
