Rotelli's mark on Francesco's wheels

Rotelli Tires is a famous Italian tire trademark. It is seen in Cars 2, because Rotelli is Francesco Bernoulli's tire trademark. Francesco's Rotelli Tire model is Pasta Potenza.


  • Francesco's tires are "Rotelli Tires Pasta Potenza". Potenza makes allusions to Bridgestone's Potenza tires, which were used by all Formula One teams from 2007 to 2010. Note that "Pasta Potenza" would literally mean "the power of pasta". "Rotelli" is a play between Rotini, a type of pasta, and Pirelli, which is now the official F1 tire supplier. It is possibly also a reference to Italian sports cars being called "Pasta Rockets".
