Schumacher / Todt Spend McLaren Fine Money


Michael Schumacher

It an odd twist of fate, Michael Schumacher and Jean Todt will comprise of a 5-man group who oversee the spending of McLaren’s $60M fine.

being McLAren’s arch rivals for all those years has some sweet justice in the end when you get to spend Ron Dennis’ hard-earned cash for safety programs. I wonder if some of the money will be spent on the Racing Against Racism program? After spending a decade plus fighting against Ron’s McLaren team, they will form a panel that will decide the fate of the $60M fine over the next five years. As an ambassador for the FIA’s safety initiatives, i can almost understand Schumacher’s role but Jean Todt is the person who got this fine started and it seems a slap in the face fro Ron to know that Jean is fondling his cash. Red Jumpers for everyone!

Don’t forget that Norbert Haug is also part of that team… that has to hurt, even just a little.


what a crazy year for ron and mclaren. but tables turn, people rise, people fall. not that anyone can predict it, but i’m sure there will come a time when the red horsies will fall from grace. $100M is a lot of money to distribute. let’s see where all of it really goes.

I figure the red horse was suffering for 21 years so they are making hay now. :)
