Michael Schumacher still has what it takes to be a winner and silence the critics, says Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali. The seven-times world champion, who won five of his titles with Ferrari before retiring in 2006, has struggled to be competitive in his comeback with Mercedes.
"I would say that Michael has not changed his approach in the way that he is doing his job now," Domenicali said ahead of Sunday's Italian Grand Prix.
Schumacher is a six-times winner at Monza, five times with Ferrari. "Honestly, I can see him fighting for something important if he has a great car," added the Ferrari boss. Schumacher's best result to date this year has been fourth place in Canada. "The more you criticise him, the more he will want to show that he doesn't deserve that."
Senna confident ahead of monza
Bruno Senna will go into this weekend's Italian GP confident of improving on his debut outing with the Renault team at last month's Belgian Grand Prix.
The 27-year-old Brazilian nephew of the late legendary triple world champion Ayrton Senna has ousted German Nick Heidfeld from the Renault team.
He said: "In Spa, I didn't know what to expect in terms of the competitiveness, but it was encouraging that I managed to develop my pace quickly, and work with the team. A flag for every occasion
“I am eager to get into the cockpit because I feel more confident heading into this race.”
