Junior's a better name anyway | Thank Frankel it's Friday

The most astonishing facet of Alfa Romeo having to change the name of its new compact EV crossover from Milano to Junior wasn’t the fact that the change had to be made, but that the car was not only unveiled under the old name, but then that it took five full days before the company realised it had no choice but to change it.

Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
