Montezemolo: Ferrari can win all races

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo believes the Italian outfit can win all the remaining races of the 2007 season.

The Maranello squad, winners of five of 11 races so far this year, are 19 points behind rivals McLaren with six races remaining.

The standings, however, could change if McLaren win their appeal after being barred from scoring points in Hungary, where the British team scored a total of 15.

Di Montezemolo reckons the team are capable of winning all the six remaining races, and said the Italian squad need to believe in themselves to do it.

"We can win all the remaining races, because we have the capacity to do it," said di Montezemolo after meeting with team boss Jean Todt on Wednesday. "The team has to believe in it."

The Ferrari president also insisted the Italian squad will press on with their legal actions in Italy and England, reiterating his belief that the espionage case is of "incomparable gravity".

"As I've already repeatedly said since the beginning of this story, what has happened is of an incomparable gravity, and we will go on with great determination and profound conviction," di Montezemolo added, "until the end, as far as the legal proceedings in Italy and England, but also as far as the sporting proceedings with the hearing at the FIA Court of Appeal, on 13th September in Paris, are concerned.

"For Ferrari it is fundamental that the whole truth about this ugly story can be seen before everybody's eyes."
