Bottas joins Mercedes for 2017
  Bottas becomes the 11th driver to compete in F1 with Mercedes

It's been 45 days since Nico Rosberg dropped the bombshell of his immediate retirement from Formula One. And it left the team with a conundrum: how to best fill the vacant seat alongside three-time champion Lewis Hamilton in order to defend the Constructors' Championship? Following six weeks of detailed evaluation, deliberation and negotiation, the answer can now be confirmed officially: we signed Valtteri Bottas this morning. The 27-year-old native of Nastola, Finland has completed four seasons in Formula One with Williams, making 77 starts and scoring 9 career podiums so far.

Scenes from the Detroit Auto Show
Once the crown jewel of the US auto industry, the annual North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) has lacked a bit of its usual luster in recent years. That said, there was still plenty to see in Detroit this year. We encountered replacements for best sellers like the Toyota Camry, BMW 5 Series, and Ford F-150. Nissan grabbed plenty of attention on the eve of the show with its sporty vMotion all-electric concept car.

Dakar: Sunderland wins his first, Peterhansel wins 13th
  Peugeot team dominates car division

There was no containing the outpouring of emotion at the finish line of the 2017 Dakar Rally. All off-road racers making it to the end of this year's edition have stood up extreme weather and terrain on an unprecedented scale. With this being widely regarded as the toughest Dakar ever to be held in South America it should be no surprise that the teams rich in experience came out on top.

All-New Ford GT Has The Dashboard Of The Future
  Defining the visual future of in-car data
The all-new Ford GT features a digital instrument display in the car’s dashboard to present information quickly and easily to the driver, like the glass cockpit in airplanes and race cars. The innovative 10-inch-wide digital instrument display is far advanced from the original Ford GT, when the cockpit was hardwired with a fixed set of analog gauges, buttons and knobs across the dashboard to address every situation.
Dakar Stage 11: Loeb down to the wire
  one-two for Barreda and Goncalves in Bikes

The last long drive, the last sand dunes – and the last chance to make an impression at Dakar Rally 2017. Friday saw competitors cover 759 kilometers from San Juan to Rio Cuarto in Argentina. With Saturday’s final stage only 64km long, there shouldn’t be much room for any major upset before the finish in Buenos Aires. But Sebastien Loeb sent a strong message to his French rival nonetheless.

We drive the 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  by Ali Arsham

The Honda Ridgeline originally came out in 2014 and it was not a great seller. Rumor was that Honda was just going to abandon it and move on but now there is a new Ridgeline and Honda has been working on many improvements and it has paid off. The Ridgeline offers customers more choices than ever with a new two wheel drive option as well as lots of options and features. The second generation truck was designed, developed and is manufactured in America using domestic and globally sourced parts.

Dakar Stage 10: Barreda wins by default
  Momentum for Peterhansel

Joan Barreda obtained his third stage victory this year following a time penalty received by Michael Metge, but this change in the situation still leaves Sam Sunderland untroubled and more than ever leader of the bike category. Stephane Peterhansel also picked up his third stage win since the start and regained the lead in the general standings.
