The Anonymous Widower

Would You Trust Italian Engineering?

The British Grand Prix was a bit of a farce today, as several drivers suffered tyre failures as the BBC reports.

Now Italians may be good at some things like food, parties and calendars, but it does seem that their engineering companies aren’t up to their past high standards  at the moment. After all, I did report on the quality of products from AnsaldoBreda here.

I suspect that just as they have with their economy and their politics, there is a lot of rethinking to do.

  1. Italian design is excellent, but unfortunately the engineering is not so good. Anyone who has owned and Alfa Romeo will tell you that.

    • Sounds just like Fyra and the Midland Metro. I wonder if Berlusconi gave Alphas to Gaddafi and his ilk!
