I like Sergio Marchionne’s attitude to Chrysler, the troubled US car company in which Fiat plans to take a 35 per cent stake in exchange for helping it to make small cars.

Most chief executives who form joint ventures such as this have extravagant promises for how they will transform the prospects of the company with which they are linking up. No so the boss of Fiat.
