Alfa Romeo CEO Wants ‘as Few Screens as Possible’ in Its Cars

"I don't sell an iPad with a car around it, I sell an Alfa Romeo," he said in an interview. Love 'em or hate 'em, screens are a big part of modern car interiors. Most new models place heavy emphasis on features like the infotainment display, whether it be the new 2022 Ford Expedition or something like the Mercedes-Benz EQS and its almighty Hyperscreen. And while it might seem that the automotive world is shifting toward tablets on wheels, at least one automaker is committed to using as few screens as possible.

Leclerc to start Russian GP at the back due to hybrid upgrade

Charles Leclerc will start the Russian Grand Prix from the back of the grid as a result of taking new power unit components as Ferrari introduces an upgrade. Ferrari has been working on the hybrid elements of its power unit, with Leclerc first to get the new parts in Sochi as a result of damage in previous races.
