Scuderia Ferrari's man on top has renewed his contract for the 2007 F1 season. According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, team boss Jean Todt, was given a monetary offer that he couldn't refuse to remain with Ferrari through the end of next year.

The news of Todt's contract extension brings to light more questions about Michael Schumacher's future at the Italian mark, especially considering how instrumental Todt was in the hiring of Schumacher in 1996. Many reports suggested that if the seven-time F1 champion would leave, Jean Todt would follow. With Schumacher considering a possible contract at BMW for $100 million, Deutschland's finest may move onto greener pastures.

      Yes, but Michelle Yeoh is doing fine by herself and doesn't really need Todt's wallet. She is considered to be an extremely good actress (I would say great, but then I am biased) and gets paid pretty well in acting.

      Considering how they're doing this year, it sounds like Ferrari made a good deal.

      Jean also has a very large wallet. Some girls really like that in a man. Go figure.

      At least we will still get to see Michelle Yeoh at all the races. What is up with that? I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
