Maranello, Italy - Former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has again commented on the recovery of Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher, having earlier in 2016 said the news about the seven time world champion is"not good".
Schumacher suffered head injuries during a 2013 skiing incident in Switzerland.
'He will fight back'
Montezemolo, quoted by Italian broadcaster Sky, said: "I want to express very strongly my confidence, because in the past some of my words were misinterpreted.
"With strength and conviction, I am very confident about Michael's recovery and that he will make it. His strength is his great ability to react, so I am convinced that, surrounded by his family and with his own strength, he will fight back."
