    just got word that JT is getting fired by Montezemolo for trying to defraud Ferrari by setting up companies that are dealing with Ferrari. News is just coming out of Italy.
    Anybody have anything more concrete on this?

    I got it confirmed by someone close to Ferrari Spa

    Hope this is not true. Would really look bad if that is what he tried to do.
    Apparently got caught red handed by LM for his involvement.

    News I am getting is very sketchy still.

    Boy, considering he (Todt) was one of the most vocal about the whole Stepneygate scandal this certainly is interesting.

    I guess Italian prosecutors are going to have a full docket with just Ferrari cases.

    Lets wait till we know for sure.
    My sources on that are usually pretty good but you never know.

    Does not make sense. Todd had everything going for him at Ferrari. Money appears as such a low factor in this but then you never know.

    I don't want to judge early... Let's see if these rumours are true first.

    Ditto. There's nothing in the Italian Press to indicate that they are. Who is the source of this? If it's true why shouldn't the source be mentioned by name?

    It's probably the shoe company Todd, which had a license to do Ferrari logo shoes :)

    come one....can't tell you that.

    Had another source confirm that something is up.
    Much unrest in Maranello at this hour.

    I just hope this turns out to be a dud and I have to eat my words....

    I would hope the Italian press will not go out and print something before they could confirm anything. Would look really bad if it were not true.
    Hate to see this happen at the start of the season. Could mean some distraction in the scuderia.

    Reading what Martin says, it sounds more like if it had to do with the "commmercial" side of Ferrari... if the company in question isn't a copyshop...

    I have been surfing the Web and cannot find anything out on this. Martin, how sure is your friend of this information?
