Magazine: Can Red Bull stop Mercedes in F1 this year?

Sky pundit and ex-F1 racer Karun Chandhok takes on these questions and more in this week's Autosport magazine, out today (25 February).

In our now traditional annual Big Questions piece, Chandhok looks at the key storylines of 2021, from the fight at the front to the battle of the rookies and the controversial 23-race F1 calendar.

Technical Editor Jake Boxall-Legge also casts his eye over the new cars as the 2021 F1 grid begins to take shape. And Alex Albon talks to Grand Prix Editor Alex Kalinauckas about how he plans to get back to F1, having lost his Red Bull seat to Sergio Perez.

The seventh Formula E season is about to kick off in Saudi Arabia and there are plenty of subplots in the all-electric series. Matt Kew is your guide - for both the on-track and off-track drama.

The Arctic Rally has a long and fine history, and will finally host the World Rally Championship this week. David Evans looks at what makes it so special and speaks to Toyota stars Elfyn Evans and Kalle Rovanpera about the appeals and challenges of the snow event.

Jimmie Johnson is a NASCAR legend, with seven top-tier titles and 83 victories to his name despite troubled recent campaigns. This year he makes the switch to IndyCar with Chip Ganassi Racing and he tells David Malsher-Lopez why he is taking on a single-seater career at the age of 45.

Sportscar racing could be on the brink of another golden era as new regulations arrive and G-Drive boss Roman Rusinov explains to us why he believes his Aurus-affiliated LMP2 squad is well placed to take advantage of the increased competition, fresh from another Asian Le Mans Series title last weekend.

There's also all the usual national news from the UK club racing scene, including a look at what the new national lockdown plan means for motorsport.
