Jean Todt's just on a roll. He was just made a Datuk of the Malaysian state of Trengganu not so long ago, and now he's a Legionnaire of Honour... a Grand Officier, which is France's 2nd highest honour no less.
To keep up, looks like the Sultan of Trengganu (now the reigning DYMM Yang DiPertuan Agung) will need to give him a Tan Sri, which our second highest honour (in rank lah, though the large number of recipients might not convey the same prestige).

Ferrari CEO Jean Todt has received further recognition for his work at the Italian squad, by being awarded France’s second highest honour.
The Frenchman has been made a Grand Officier of the Légion d’honneur, six years after he became a Commandeur by his home country's Prime Ministry.
The Légion d'honneur is the premier honour in France, with the Grand Cross the highest of five classes in the order.
