Force India driver Adrian Sutil is confident of picking up points in the remaining seven races of the Formula 1 season and finish 2010 on a high.
"I feel very comfortable. They (remaining races) should suit our car (Mercedes). If you remember last year, there was a podium finish there (Italian GP at Monza) and a pole position," said the 27-year-old German in Mumbai on Sunday evening before leaving for Switzerland after a short holiday in Goa.
Last year at Monza, Sutil, who came to India last Wednesday, was second in the qualifying and finished fourth in the race.
The regulations that caused changes in the tyres of F1 cars this season would be a disadvantage, felt Sutil, who is 10th overall with 35 points, but said he was confident of doing very well in four out of the last seven races this year.
"Last year we had an incredible car there, it was a big advantage. This year, it's a little bit more consistent tyres. We don't have that advantage any more. Still we should be able to score a lot of points in the coming races. We have a very good chance in Spa (Belgium on August 29) and Monza (Italy on September 12)," he said.
"Then we go to Singapore which is a bit more difficult course. Korea...nobody knows. Japan and Brazil should suit us well (before the season-ending race in Abu Dhabi). Four of seven...I'm absolutely confident," said Sutil.
