Kimi Raikkonen insists he will be chasing victory at this weekend's Monaco GP but, given Ferrari's dismal campaign, concedes a podium finish would also do just fine.
After five grands prix Raikkonen has just three World Championship points to his name thanks to his sixth placed finish in Bahrain.
The Finn's performance that weekend saved Ferrari from their worst start ever to a Formula One season - but there's still a long way to go before he can save his team in the title race.
"The fight for the Championship is really difficult now, but that doesn't mean that I'm not motivated," the 2007 World Champion said.
"I want to win again and I'm sure that we will do it. We'll keep on working on the car to make it more competitive and especially more reliable. We could see already that hard work pays."
Heading to Monte Carlo this weekend, Raikkonen is aiming to take a step towards putting his name forward for the title race but admits that the unpredictability of the street circuit could scupper his goal of a top-three finish.
"The next race is at Monaco, where I had some great weekends, but it's a very difficult race. It would be great to fight for a position on the podium, but this track is even more unpredictable than others."
