Affaritaliani.it were the first to sniff that all was not well with the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles when they reported: “Instead of a simple shoulder operation, it was more complex and required complex clinical procedure. An invasive disease emanating from the prostate had already spread in a devastating manner, but only discovered a short time ago.”

“An evil that could require further medical investigations and more complex surgical interventions. From here the Marchionne family have drastic decisions to make.”

Lettera43 editor Paolo Madron wrote on Twitter: “Things that you would never want to say, but unfortunately the duty of news requires us to do so: Marchionne is in a deep coma.”

that is really really sad, wow!
so i may assume correctly he has been diagnosed with cancer, i don't know how that turns into a shoulder surgery except for when there's an issiue where it has spread to the glands.

depending on the complications, a coma is not impossible indeed depending on how the body reacts. this is indeed very sad. no matter who, this is horrible.
Prostate cancer frequently spreads to the bones, so I would take an educated guess and surmise that he may have had a tumour in his shoulder.

Coma is always a possible side-effect of anaesthetic or as I previously mentioned, he could have suffered a stroke or heart attack during or following the procedure.

My thoughts go out to his family and the who Fiat family.
In 2007 I had the chance to go to a meet-and-greet with an F1 test driver. I decided not to as I didn't think he'd even amount to much...he was the BMW Sauber test driver and his name was Sebastian Vettel...

Thought I'd share this article I came across. It's respectful and paints the man well. And - importantly - contains none of the random speculation being thrown around.

Marchionne may not be to everyones taste when it came to his overseeing of the Ferrari F1 team but, ultimately, it's working and it's impossible to argue against the positive impact he's had in the wider business. Many in Italy are commenting that if there were more business leaders with the same dedication, ambition and balls as Marchionne then other national companies (Alitalia, for example) would be much stronger.

Devastating news. Condolences to all the family and relatives of Marchionne. It's times like these when you remember that there are way more important things in life, specially the health.

It's unbelieavable to think that this amazing business man who was among us in a good shape not so long ago, won't be it anymore.

Rest In peace, Sergio Marchionne. You brought Ferrari to the stars again and you'll always be a star in the darkness for Ferrari.

I do hope Vettel and Ferrari can win this championship in his honour. He was a true leader and he made a great job. My condolences to the family and all the FIAT/Ferrari workers.

If Ferrari can bring home the championship this year, it will be in his honour. Great loss. RIP

Rest In Peace Sergio.

I think that this will either galvanise the team to really challenge and do everything they can to win both championships, or they will be distracted and Mercedes will steal a march. I hope it's the former.

I don't think his death will have any impact on the team, directly, one way or the other.

RIP Sergio!
