Ferrari team boss Jean Todt has been awarded France’s second highest honour and made a Grand Officier of the Legion d’Honneur.

Todt was named a Commandeur by the French Prime Ministry back in 2001 and his latest title puts him just one step behind the Legion d’Honneur’s highest rank of Grand-Croix.

It has been a year of promotions for 50-year-old Todt. Last October he was appointed as overall Chief Executive Officer of Ferrari.
