Michael Schumacher family holds beautiful tribute for Jean Todt
Jean Todt passed the baton as chairman of the FIA to Mohammed Ben Sulayem at the end of last week. The Frenchman’s legacy as chairman is one of a chairman who campaigned for safety, because under his rule, for example, the Halo entered single seater racing.
In a past life, Jean Todt was of course better known for his period as team principal at Ferrari, where he completed one of the most successful periods of the Scuderia with Michael Schumacher. To this day, Todt is one of the best friends of the Schumacher family and is one of the few who can visit the hapless German in person.
“Celebrating a man who has always had a vision and a big heart,” the Schumacher family said in a statement on Twitter.
“Jean, you have left your mark on the world of motorsport and you are an inspiration to many around the world and to our family in your fight for road safety.”
“We are proud to have you by our side, and we are proud to stay by your side in the next chapter of your life. For even more time together. Love from the whole Schumacher family.”
Todt responded to the tribute with a heartwarming short message: “I love you forever.”
