Todt plays down Ecclestone’s spat with Ferrari 12 December, 2012 Dec.12 (GMM) FIA president Jean Todt has played down the spat between F1’s most important team, Ferrari, and the sport’s powerful chief executive Bernie Ecclestone. Ecclestone and Luca di Montezemolo became embroiled in a war of words last week, over the Interlagos yellow flag saga and the Ferrari president’s hint that 82-year-old Ecclestone is now too old to be in charge. “We will handle the issue in due course and in a pragmatic way, as always,” the Italian news agency Ansa quotes Todt. As for Ferrari’s continued push for a reduced influence of aerodynamics in F1 and more testing, Frenchman Todt replied: “Ferrari has just completed a great season and I am sure they will have an even better one.” Subbed by AJN.
