Todt to stay at Ferrari
The best way to achieve this will be to guarantee Schumacher not only a completely dominant role in the team but also more money. It is expected, therefore, that Eddie Irvine's option with the team will be taken up for next year.
Although the Northern Ireland driver talks about leaving Ferrari to become a team leader elsewhere he knows that it is not very likely that there will be any offers from the top teams so his best course of action is to stay where he is and hope that Ferrari will become so dominant that he will be able to win races when Schumacher suffers mechanical failures.
