The sharp lines make this look like a futuristic truck. Chevrolet delivered nearly 700,000 pickups in the United States in 2020, which was more than any other type of vehicle that the brand sold. It's safe to say that trucks are very important to the company, so naturally, the automaker's designers are always toying with what the future of these models could look like.

Cadillac has the CT4 and CT5 , both of which recently gained high-horsepower Blackwing versions but who knows if they will endure beyond their current life cycle. At least one person inside GM isn't completely focused on SUVs and trucks. On Valentine's Day, the official GM Design Instagram account posted a sketch of a sleek car that appears to be a sedan. We say that because there's only one vertical body line denoting doors in the center, so we aren't entirely sure how occupants would gain access. That doesn't really matter, because the interesting thing here is that we're seeing a car instead of an SUV, crossover, or truck. However, that doesn't mean GM is working on a new sedan. As far as we can tell, this is just a flight-of-fancy from an exterior designer. It's … [Read more...] about GM Lead Exterior Designer Envisions Sleek Sedan In An SUV World
Hamilton's previous Mercedes contract expired after the 2020 season, prompting lots of media interest on his F1 future throughout the year. After clinching his seventh world championship Hamilton headed into the off-season without signing a new agreement, which further fuelled the fire despite signs that all parties were committed to agreeing a new deal. It took until early February, just five weeks before the start of winter testing in Bahrain, for Hamilton and Mercedes to finally put pen to paper on a fresh one-year contract.

It's not like it's my first rodeo," Hamilton said. "I think I've been in this position where at least I've been asked the question for a period … [Read more...] about Hamilton on F1 contract talk distractions: “Not my first rodeo”
