“There are pictures of Michael hanging all over my offices and apartments,” Todt tells F1-Insider.com. “I will always remember the time with Michael as the best of my life. We love each other because we wrote an incredible story together. And because we have always stuck together in difficult times. “
Todt: “The moment with Michael on the podium was the best of my career. It shows the reason why I was hired by Ferrari. And why I got Michael. At that time I said to Michael: Our professional life will never be the same again. We met everyone’s expectations. Not just from fans in Italy, but worldwide. Everyone always asked me at the beginning: when will it happen? A few years later I got the question: When are you going to lose again? They were all fed up with our dominance. “
