Todt leaves Ferrari

Jean Todt, the man who led Ferrari’s resurgence in Formula 1 with the unprecedented six year domination during the Michael Schumacher dynasty has resigned from his post of CEO at Ferrari, which was confirmed during the just concluded share holder’s meeting March 18th.

Yet, rumours suggest that the 62yr old Frenchman may be positioning himself for a run at Max Mosley’s job as head of the FIA in 2009 when Mad Max’s current tenure expires. Apparently Mosley and Todt are friends and the Scuderia has left Todt as its FIA representative, which could come in handy during the run-up to elections next year…
