After spending many years reading and listening to Jean Todt, this is the first time I can recall him discussing his relationship with Ferrari in this light. With the rumors that Luca is becoming disgruntled with Todt and his son over Massa versus Alonso options for next year, perhaps these comments are a brief insight that perhaps these rumors are true (to a point).
What would Ross Brawn do if Jean and his son left to go to Toyota? Would Alonso, Nico, Kovy or Sutil sign with Ferrari without Todt? Hmmm…the plot thickens.
