How a "supernatural" adaption resurrected Gasly's F1 career
A nightmare start to 2019 resulted in Pierre Gasly's demotion back to AlphaTauri, but he's rebounded superbly, culminating in that surprise victory at Monza . Here, Gasly and race engineer Pierre Hamelin explain his redemptive journey to OLEG KARPOV

And now it’s happening again at his current team, but can the rate of progress be matched this year?
OPINION: Ferrari's numerous strategy blunders, as well as some of his own mistakes, have cost Charles Leclerc dearly in the 2022 Formula 1 title battle in the first half of the season. Though he is locked into a deal with Ferrari, few could blame Leclerc if he ultimately wanted to look elsewhere - just as Lewis Hamilton did with McLaren 10 years prior
After being ditched by McLaren earlier in his F1 career Sergio Perez fought his way back into a seat with a leading team. BEN EDWARDS thinks the same could be happening to another member of the current grid
Winner of 13 grands prix including Monaco and survivor of a life-changing plane crash, David Coulthard could be forgiven for having eased into a quiet retirement – but, as MARK GALLAGHER explains, in fact he’s busier than ever, running an award-winning media company and championing diversity in motor racing.
