Racing Point team principal Otmar Szafnauer says that the team has plenty of more upgrades to introduce in the coming races.
Last month, Szafnauer confirmed that the German Grand Prix would see a significant upgrade for the RP19, stating that the team would have an almost new car.
The Silverstone-based squad is currently sitting sixth in the constructors' championship behind fellow midfield runners McLaren and Renault.
The tightness of the midfield battles means that upgrades and the development race will likely play a large role in the midfield fight.
"We’re sitting in sixth place in the championship and have scored points in five out of seven races," Szafnauer said. "It’s very tight in the midfield and I can see the fight going all the way to the last race.
"That’s why it’s paramount that we continue scoring points consistently. It’s fair to say race pace has been our strength, while we need to improve our qualifying performance.
“We have taken some good steps forward with the car since the start of the year and there’s plenty more upgrades in the pipeline too.
"When the middle of the grid is separated by tenths of a second, you’ve got to bring performance steps to the track as soon as you can and that’s our focus in the lead up to the summer break.”
In Canada, the team picked up two points from Lance Stroll, who battled his way through the pack to cross the line in ninth place.
Stroll says that the result in Montreal gave the team a boost, and the 20-year-old will be hoping to carry the momentum from his home race to Paul Ricard this weekend.
"The performance we had in Canada on race day gave us all a boost and I really enjoyed it," Stroll said. "I always say it’s Sunday that counts so to come back and score points in my home race after such a tough Saturday felt really special.
“The Paul Ricard circuit is almost the other extreme from Montreal. There are massive run-off areas and it’s a very different experience. That’s not something I enjoy because if you run wide, you can get away with it quite easily. It’s just less of a challenge for the drivers."
