I understand that private broadcasters finance their coverage in this way and that the procedure respects the law.

"When I see a Grand Prix – continues Jean Todt – I want to be able to follow him". Praise instead for the journalists and industry commentators: "They are very competent. I know how difficult this job is, so I do not want to criticize it. And I have always advised Schumacher not to do it ".
