The cars also enjoyed success on the famous American hillclimb at Pike's Peak, won by Vatanen in 1988 and the following year by Robby Unser.Such was Peugeot domination of raid-rallying that in 1989, in order to stop his drivers racing one another across the desert, Todt settled a battle between Vatanen and Jacky Ickx with the toss of a 10 Franc coin.

Peugeot management turned down his proposal to take Peugeot into Formula 1 and when an offer came from Ferrari president for Todt to take over the running of the Ferrari F1 team he jumped at the chance.

He took over the team in July 1993 and has been in charge ever since.

The Peugeot 905s ran for the first time in the summer of 1990 and in 1991 the cars began winning, going head-to-head with Jaguar battling for the World title.

The following year there was no stopping Peugeot and Yannick Dalmas and Derek won the World title and shared a 905 with Mark Blundell to victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours.

In 1981 Talbot won the World Rally Manufacturers' title.

In October 1981 Todt was asked by Jean Boillot, the head of Automobiles Peugeot, if he would set up a new competition department for PSA Peugeot-Citroen. Todt axed the Talbot F1 program and set about creating a program to take Peugeot to victory in the World Rally Championship with the now-legendary Peugeot 205 Turbo 16.“He always had the utmost respect for everyone in this round, he would be very honoured.“What made Michael so special, what made him so successful, that was the love of the sport.It was a more difficult job than everyone had thought but Gerhard Berger scored the team's first win under Todt's control in the middle of 1994.It was not until Michael Schumacher arrived in 1996 that the team really started to come together with three wins.Todt's battle with FIA President Jean-Marie Balestre showed that he was not scared to take on officialdom.
