8th June, 2014 (F1 Plus / Rosie Baillie) - After finishing eighth at the Canadian Grand Prix, Jean-Eric Vergne has hailed it as the best race of his Formula One career.

The Frenchman explained it was more to do with everything working well and him picking up his first points since Australia, rather than his finishing position.

“It was a good race, maybe the best of my F1 career so far, not in terms of results but I think everything went perfect and we finally scored some points.” Vergne said.

“I was able to gain a position on Alonso after a good start and I could keep Magnussen behind later on, managing well what was a difficult race.”

“The team did a great job all weekend, where we worked really well to put together the best possible car.”

The Toro Rosso driver said the team are taking updates to the Austrian Grand Prix in two weeks time and is confident they will work.

“We are now waiting for more updates to come at the Austrian Grand Prix and I'm confident we will improve the speed and bring home even better results.” he said.

Teammate Daniil Kvyat had a difficult weekend which came to a disappointing climax when he was forced to retire from the race when he lost drive.

“It’s been a disappointing end to a difficult weekend here in Canada.” Kvyat said.

“Even though yesterday’s Qualifying did not go well for me, I was hopeful to aim high in today’s race.”

“At the start of the race I lost a position and then later on I made a mistake in Turn 1 when my tyres were still a bit cold and I lost quite a lot of time there.”

“I then had to stop on track when I suddenly lost drive.”
