Who wants to bet that Hamilton will be on the cover of Autosport next week? Since, Mid-May we've had Alonso, Hamilton, Alonso, Hamilton and Alonso this past week on the cover. It's actually pretty funny.....

I couldn't care less which F 1 driver they depict - the problem is that 52 weeks of the year the cover, and most of the magazine is about F1 . It didn't used to be like that ,as it was about motor sport including , but not confined to F1 .



So a cover might depict a rally Stratos, a Special Saloon or an F2 car - but now it's an F1 fanzine it has fallen from grace . True , it might cover Indy and BTCC - but why does it only cover stuff you see on telly? Answer - because the great unwashed think anything on TV is good and anything which doesn't appear on TV as not worth making the effort to watch live .

Last two times Iíve brought the mag was years ago and it was two specials-the Super Tourer issue and the Group C issue. They were really well done which shows the mag can cover stuff other then F1.

It would be good if they kept doing some retro special for the August month

Thatís down to whether he wins at Paul Ricard or not. So far itís on.

I think they should cover club motorsport more. I remember when they did. And the results printed are not like they used to be.

(Thatís three fingers in the comments about Autosport drinking game).

I've checked at ebay and all other places to seek 70's magazines and from 25 first issues of 1978 Autosport only 1 cover was dedicated to drivers - from South African GP. From other 24 only 10 were dedicated to F1 cars. From 25 2019's Autosport only 2 were not F1 - and both had Alonso photo on the cover. So, don't fans care about technical side nowadays or do, actually, journalists have no idea what to write about cars? Maybe they are waiting while Dallara build not only F3 and F2 but the whole F1 too?
