Germany's seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher believes Ferrari are still capable of turning the season on its head by winning the drivers' and constructors' championship.
"I think our chances of turning the championship around are very good. Lots of things can still happen in the remaining four races and I still think we have every reason to dream of winning both titles," Schumacher said.
Schumacher trails Spain's reigning world champion Fernando Alonso by 12 points heading into Sunday's Monza Grand Prix and Renault are two points ahead of Ferrari in the team standings.
"Monza is always a special race. The Italian Grand Prix has always been very important for Ferrari and a lot of significant things have happened here over the years," said Schumacher.
"Our strategy has to be attacking. We have to close the gap and the only way to do that is by consistently putting on pressure and pushing hard."
Ferrari are poised to reveal their drivers for 2007 after the Monza race and the main interest surrounds the future of the 37-year-old Schumacher who could announce his retirement from the sport this weekend.
"All I can do is ask everyone to understand that I don't want to touch on that subject until next Sunday," added Schumacher.
