Ferrari boss happy with ‘competent’ Jean Todt

Jean Todt and Luca di Montezemolo in their Ferrari days

Dec.14 (GMM) Luca di Montezemolo is confident that formula one is looking into a more hopeful future.

As the departing chairman of the FOTA team alliance, the Ferrari president was on the front line of this year’s bitter power struggle with former FIA president Max Mosley.

The war ultimately ended with an uneasy truce, with Jean Todt taking the reins after 17 years of Mosley rule.

It is believed Montezemolo and the FIA’s new president Todt did not part terms at Ferrari as the best of friends.

But Montezemolo told Corriere dello Sport: “We observe the change in F1 with confidence, because today at the head of the FIA is a competent person, which is what we all want.

“I would like to take this occasion to wish you (Todt) all the best,” he added.
