    Italian not needed. Style, performance, reliability will succeed.

    I figured it might be between Ralph and Mike, but I don't think Ralph was really in the running for one reason or another.

    Good luck to Manley, and I hope Sergio comes out of this alright, though the time that memo had sounded like it was looking bad, maybe fatal. o_O

    This were shocking news. For FCA, since the transition was already under way I don't think it affects the company dramatically. But I really hope that Sergio pulls through.

    I might not be happy with some decisions that were taken but I can recognize the merit in his work.

    Get well Sergio!

    The Italian side of the operations is very complex. Marchionne was able to take part in all sorts of activities in Italy because he was fluent in Italian. I wonder if Manley will be able to survive not being fluent in it.

    I think so, because I'm pretty sure many speak English.

    I've only seem positive changes under Sergio's watch. Ten years ago I could have never imagined all the amazing products we have and such high quality too. Sergio is a legend in my book.

    That is the thing I fear most during this transition period.

    I had hoped that whomever became the next CEO, that Marchionne would still be there as a resource to draw upon. It saddens me that there is a very real possibility that he will no longer be able to perform that role.

    I had long hoped that Mike Manley would be the next CEO......but not like this.

    It just goes to show you that life is such a mystery. Just when we think we have it figured out.....we learn the hard way that we don't.

    Ralph was never under consideration. Remember when he briefly ran Dodge and mucked up all the trim level names, main street etc, then the SRT brand fiasco. He's perfect as the design VP though.

    I hope Sergio makes a full recovery. What he created with the Merger is the automotive equivalent of pulling a rabbit out of a hat. It is far from perfect but it took true grit to pull it off.

    Let me clarify, all of Sergio's workaholic efforts mean nothing to him now. He will not get to enjoy the fruits of his labor in retirement....and that is sad.

    Every day is a blessing because it can all end in a moment.

    Wishing Sergio well and hope this is something he will recover from. Many don't like what he has done as CEO but he did keep Chrysler Corporation alive. I didn't agree with some of his decisions but I personally don't know what it takes to run a company such as FCA.

    It should be interesting moving forward who Manley's lieutenants will become. And if they, being Exor actually let him run the company.
