What's going to kill diesel is this continuous drain on capital and this continuous skepticism about its value to society.
The reality is the Mexican automotive industry has now for a number of years been tooled-up to try and deal with the U.S. market. If the U.S. market were not to be there, the reasons for its existence are on the line.
Let's find out what happens as a result of President-elect Trump coming in and how he views imports. I need clarity ... we're not the only ones who need clarity.
It's possible, if the economic terms imposed by the US administration on anything that comes into the United States that, if they're sufficiently large that it would make the production of anything in Mexico uneconomical. We would have to withdraw. It is quite possible.

Let's hope it lasts as long as possible. The effects will be felt starting from the end of the year because we still have a lot of dollar hedging to get through. It will also help (luxury sports maker) Ferrari.
There is nearly 100 percent certainty that no (sales) deal will happen in the fourth quarter of this year.
I've had this conversation with CVC in the past, I've had it with Bernie ... I think it's important that we provide stability and a long-term view. I'm sure that will happen soon.
I think we failed the targets, I don't think there's a doubt in my mind.
I feel quite comfortable that this team are quite capable of turning the fate of the 'scuderia' around. Unfortunately we don't have a lot of season left.

The decline for June will be less than 20 percent, but it's still a double-digit figure.
Fiat… can't afford to operate in Italy in an environment of uncertainty that is so incongruous with the conditions that exist elsewhere in the industrialised world.
If the Chinese are willing to invest, God bless them. But the fact we had to go there to China asking for money is not a good sign.
We are changing both the image and substance of our group and are regaining the faith of the public at large.
Success is incredibly temporary. The first quarter is done. We've got a lot of quarters to do.

Maintaining job levels in the face of the market crisis we are enduring is not easy.
