Verstappen has come under intense scrutiny this season for a series of mistakes and crashes which have cost Red Bull a substantial chunk of points.
In Monaco last weekend Verstappen crashed out of FP3 and had to start the race from the back of the grid.
The Dutchman performed admirably as he battled to a ninth-placed finish but now he wants to kick on and challenge at the front.
Red Bull have showed over recent circuits that they have the speed to challenge the likes of Mercedes and Ferrari.
And Vertsappen has highlighted his plan to get his first win of the season in North America.
“Across all of Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve I think the last chicane is really important to get right,” Verstappen said.
“You arrive at such high speed so when you hit the braking point the brakes can be a bit cold which means you have to be careful and get it right every time.
“This will also set you up for the exit where you come very close to the wall, it is important not to brush it as you can damage the rim.
“A millimetre or centimetre doesn’t make too much difference, just don’t touch the wall.
“Turn one and two have a pretty cool atmosphere as the grandstands are usually full at that part of the track and it creates a small stadium feel, this makes the start a bit more special.
“The 2017 race ended with disappointment for me, as I had to stop after only 10 laps with a technical issue.
“Our car as it is now should perform well in Montreal so I am hopeful of achieving a solid result and making up for last year. Besides that, I’m always excited to get back over to the American continent as I really enjoy being there, the people, food and atmosphere are always amazing.”
