Jean Todt is set to shortly depart as a member of the FIA's World Motor Sport Council, Max Mosley confirmed at a media briefing and lunch in London on Wednesday.

Todt stepped down as Ferrari team boss at the end of the 2007 season, subsequently also handing over the role as the marque's CEO.

However, he stayed as a director of the board, and remains contracted to the Italian marque for several "special appointments".

But it emerges that Todt's current tenure is set to end in March, meaning that Ferrari will have to nominate a replacement for the 62-year-old Frenchman to represent the Italian team on the 26-member Council.
