In Milan, Pirello chairman Marco Tronchetti Provera said the global vehicle market hasn’t bottomed out yet, and that consumers “would likely wait several months to see if government measures to revive the slowing economy proved successful before they considered making a big purchase like a car,” according to news reports.

“I don’t think we have hit bottom,” he said. “We’ll need a few months more.” (Tire Review/Akron)
