Marussia are determined to make the most of any chances they get to impress during the remaining eight races of the season.
The Banbury-based squad pulled off one of the surprises of the year during qualifying at the Belgian Grand Prix as Jules Bianchi and Max Chilton made it through to Q2 at the expense of the Williams and Toro Rosso drivers.
The team's decision to put their drivers on slicks before anyone else paid off as Bianchi claimed P15 on the grid with Chilton starting next to him.
Although team principal John Booth would love to replicate that success at the Italian Grand Prix this weekend he knows all the cards will need to fall into place.
"Our qualifying performances in Spa gave the whole team a real lift and served as a reminder of what we can achieve when opportunities such as those arise," he said.
"We continue to work hard at extracting the maximum from our current package and there is a great deal of activity taking place behind the scenes to ensure we leave no stone unturned. Equally, we are confident in our ability to take our chances when the right circumstances transpire, as they can make all the difference for us in the remaining eight races of the season.
"We have a few mechanical developments for Monza and we'll be combining those with some existing parts to meet the demands of lowest downforce circuit of the season. This track is a real classic and it is not surprising therefore that we have one of our biggest contingents of guests this year accompanying us."
Bianchi, who finished 18th at Spa, admits Marussia won't have it easy for the rest of the season.
"We had a very positive qualifying session in Spa which gave us all a great boost, but Sunday showed us how hard it is to hang on to the opportunities we create for ourselves," he said.
"The remaining races will be a tough challenge for us, but we know what we have to do and we are pushing hard behind the scenes to find everything we can from our current package."
