The new Formula 1 season is kicking off so it’s time for our bumper season preview in this week’s Autosport magazine, out today (2 March).

After three days in Bahrain we know a little more about what F1 could look like in 2023. Some of what we learned from testing was fairly predictable – Red Bull looks impressive and Ferrari appears in the ballpark – but some of it was more surprising, such as the pace and confidence from Fernando Alonso and Aston Martin.

We hear from Lewis Hamilton, key figures at Alpine and the three (full-time) rookies of the year. There’s also our traditional team-by-team guide.

The competitive IndyCar Series also gets going in St Petersburg. David Malsher-Lopez picks out the main storylines, plus ponders the championship’s troubles with its future hybrid engine regulations.

Already well under way is the first season of Formula E’s Gen3 era. Jake Boxall-Legge was in South Africa to watch Antonio Felix da Costa storm through from 11th to win one of the finest races in the championship’s history.

Thanks to the Classic Sports Car Club, the UK racing season got going earlier than usual. Marcus Pye was at Silverstone to see the gamble pay off, plus we have coverage of the Pomeroy Trophy and usual round-up of club news in our National section. Stephen Lickorish also investigates the latest challenge facing grassroots racers in a special feature…
