Former team boss Jean Todt quits Ferrari board

Latest update : 2009-03-18

Former Ferrari team boss Jean Todt has quit the Italian Formula One car company after giving up his place on its board. The Frenchman presided over the Ferrari team's most successful period from 1999 to 2004.

REUTERS - Former Ferrari team boss Jean Todt has left the Italian car company completely, a statement said on Tuesday.

The Frenchman, who presided over the Formula One team's most successful period with six successive constructors' titles from 1999 to 2004, handed over as team principal to Italian Stefano Domenicali at the end of 2007.

He resigned as Ferrari chief executive officer last March but remained as a board member, with driver Felipe Massa saying Todt still participated in the most important decisions of the F1 team.

However, Todt has now decided to resign from the board.

"Jean Todt has been one of the leading protagonists of the Ferrari story of the last 15 years," Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo said. "I would like to wish him the very best for the future which I hope will prove extremely satisfying both personally and professionally."
