Events on high-speed street tracks have highlighted what many have already thought: now Ferstappen and Red Bull should be considered favorites of the 2022 Formula One Championship, although the Dutchman still lags behind Charles Leclerc of Ferrari by 19 points.
Alex Kalinautskas explains how Ferstappen won, despite hard practice and late fright, in our in-depth report, and Matt Kew responds to some of the glitches that the event itself received.
The former Ferrari star died last week and we pay tribute to this issue. Tony Brooks was one of the best racers of the 1950s and was very close to winning the world championship in Formula 1, as well as participating in key breakthroughs of the British teams Connaught and Vanwall.
Another major international event last weekend was the meeting of the World Endurance Championship in Spa. Competitors rushed eclectic weather, and it was the only surviving Toyota that came out on top. Gary Watkins was there to see how it all unfolded, and to complete the finishes in the GTE classes.
Porsche will soon return to the top of sports car racing. We see the development of the new LMDh program as the German brand strives for greater success in two 24-hour classics at Le Mans and Dayton.
It was another busy weekend in the UK. Our 21-page National section includes news and reports from Bishop’s Court, Silverstone, Cadwell Park, Knockill, Harwood, Pembroke and Oulton Park, and Stephen Likarish is investigating Lotus’ return to motorsport with the GT4 Emira.
In addition to the 92-page magazine, we’ll check out our free app in conjunction with Julius Baer, which will take place this weekend at the Berlin E-Prix. Also, as appreciated by all Formula E teams in 2022, Jake Boxall-Legge examines how the all-electric series has changed motorsport, and delves into the new Gen3 car.
