Todt vows to help successor

Jean Todt, FerrariFormer Ferrari team principal Jean Todt has vowed to do everything he can to help his successor Stefano Domenicali adapt to his new role.

Todt stood down as team boss at the end of last year and, now acting as an advisor to the team, he has said he will give Domenicali all the support he needs to continue Ferrari's recent run of success.

Speaking in Sepang, Todt said that his years of experience would be of benefit to Domenicali if he ever felt he needed some help.

"It would be presumptuous to say (it is) advice," said Todt. "But we are talking about the tensions and the pressure, so to have somebody you trust and like, and share emotions and doubts and problems with is a help.

"Sometimes, the tendency of people retiring is to criticise and say you shouldn't have done that. That's not my style - I want to support them and help as much as they need."
