Dec.12 (GMM) Jean Todt has played down the spat between F1's most important team, Ferrari, and the sport's powerful chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.

Ecclestone and Luca di Montezemolo became embroiled in a war of words last week, over the Interlagos yellow flag saga and the Ferrari president's claim that 82-year-old Ecclestone is now too old to be in charge.

"We will handle the issue in due course and in a pragmatic way, as always," the Italian news agency Ansa quotes FIA president Todt as saying.

As for Ferrari's continued push for a reduced influence of aerodynamics in F1 and more testing, Frenchman Todt replied: "Ferrari has just completed a great season and I am sure they will have an even better one."
