PF1 apologises to Jean Todt for article

Michelle Foster

PlanetF1 would like to issue an unreserved apology to Jean Todt after incorrectly stating that he was suspected of wrongdoing by authorities.

Earlier this month we reported on an article by La Repubblica regarding a probe into the Italian Grand Prix.

In the article we incorrectly said that the FIA president Todt was suspected by authorities of wrongdoing regarding a sponsorship deal.

The FIA have stated that there is “no truth whatever to this statement as Mr. Jean Todt has never been involved into this matter and had never heard of it.”
