Matt KewThe new touring car series with FE in its sights Eurosport Events chief Francois Ribeiro is not afraid of being bold, and he's certainly doing that with the new electric touring car series, Pure ETCR. It's a refreshing take that may be just what motorsport needs 1582848000 Other

Testing analysisWhat testing tells us about the early 2020 F1 formbook Last year, Ferrari won the pre-season testing war emphatically - regardless of what then happened during the season proper. There seems to be a clear leader this year, too, but how muddied is the rest of the picture? 1582848000 F1

Gary WatkinsThe F1 underdog thwarted by its bazooka-seeking owner Some 30 years on, the story of how an F3000 outfit stepped up to the big leagues and took an F1 podium in its first season is no less dramatic than it was in 1989. But Onyx's initial demise was just as swift - and even more dramatic - as its rise 1582761600 F1

Autosport70The dogfight to become F1's first 'Alfa' male Farina, Fagioli, and exciting newcomer Fangio staged a classic duel for the inaugural F1 world championship in 1950. But, while Farina won the war, it was the youngest of the trio - at 38, himself no spring chicken - with time on his side 1582761600 F1

Jonathan NobleWhy Vettel's far from done annoying Ferrari All the time Sebastian Vettel remains without a contract for 2021, there's bound to be some speculation about his future. But his comments during pre-season testing are not those of a man who's fallen out of love with F1 1582761600 F1

Alex KalinauckasWhy Ricciardo needs to put anomalous 2019 behind him Daniel Ricciardo's first season at Renault in 2019 offered plenty of promise, but ultimately no podiums. Now established as the Formula 1 team's lead driver, he needs that statistic to change in 2020 to keep his long-term options open 1582675200 F1

Testing analysisWhat we learned from the final MotoGP test Yamaha topped the times in the final MotoGP pre-season test in Qatar, but there are plenty of other storylines bubbling below the surface as preperations intensified for the start of the new season in March 1582675200 MotoGP

Testing analysisWhy day one of the second test was unusually cagey The second week of F1 testing is typically when clear narratives begin to emerge, but many question marks still remain this year as teams are content playing their cards close to their chests. It will be the final two days before we see a fuller picture emerge 1582675200 F1
