Todt at Le Bourget: 'Finmeccanica helps us stay at the top' Le Bourget, 17th June - Jean Todt visited the Le Bourget Aeronautic Show today, where Ferrari is represented with a F1-2000 car which won last year's world championship on display on the Finmeccanica stand. This company has worked in collaboration with the Maranello Scuderia since December 1999, through an agreement with its parent company, Alenia Aerospazio and Agusta Westland. Talking to the press, Todt underlined the importance of the support of Finmeccanica and how it helped it stay at the top in Formula 1. "Finmeccanica's aerospace technology is very useful in our sphere of activity," said the Sporting Director. "The transfer of technology centres mainly on the application of new materials, and experimentation with new technologies in terms of structures, transmission and aerodynamics as well as quality control and the use of laboratory equipment. In addition, along with Alenia Aerospazio, we are working on the problems inherent with the driver-equipment interface , while with Agusta Westland we are working in various areas, for example fluid dynamics and hydraulic systems. I am very happy with the way the collaboration between Ferrari and Finmeccanica is going in pursuit of the common goal of development and experimentation of avant garde technologies which will eventually be applied in the field of motor sport."
