Todt gets a street named after him
IT seems that winning a World Championship with Ferrari is nowadays considered as important as winning wars in the old days. Last week the town of Pierrefort in France announced that it was naming one of its streets after Ferrari's sporting director Jean Todt, who was born there in 1946. Pierrefort is in the middle of nowhere in the little-populated Cantal department, near Aurillac in central France. It has 1000 citizens. Todt spent the first three years of his life there, where his father was the town's doctor. The family lived on the rue de la Tour, but this has now been renamed in his honour, the rue Jean Todt.
