Todt plays down Ecclestone-Ferrari spat - Jean Todt has played down the spat between Formula One'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 claim 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 FIA president Todt as saying.
As for Ferrari's continued push for a reduced influence of aerodynamics in Formula 1 and more testing, Frenchman Todt replied: "Ferrari has just completed a great season and I am sure they will have an even better one."
