I'm not surprised the man wants to take a step back, and it's not as if he needs more money, but this does add a considerable extra layer of uncertainty to Tesla's future developments.
If Tesla is going to make it long term they need to develop the expertise in-house for succession to occur since it will happen. Maybe even Mr Musk will someday move on to greener pastures.
I'm sure there are plenty of engineers at Tesla who understand physics well enough to design batteries and cars. The harder part, IMHO, is to do so profitably. Which requires a broader understanding of supply chain management, warranty costs, manufacturing capabilities, consumer and regulatory whims, etc, etc.
