Autosport magazine unveils its new look

Haymarket’s Autosport magazine is preparing to usher in a new season of changes in Formula One with some developments of its own.

The title has been redesigned from front to back, with a new masthead, writers, editorial features and changes on every page – even though its focus remains firmly on reporting everything from F1 through to the British club motor racing scene.

New BBC F1 pundit David Coulthard, a veteran of 246 grands prix, joins the writing staff to provide expert insight before every race, and Bradley Lord – features editor of Autosport’s monthly sister title F1 Racing – will write a new weekly column.

The magazine also features an all-new back section, ‘Final Drive’, including a comprehensive weekly guide to what’s on in motorsport and the return of an Autosport favourite, ‘Race of My Life’. The latter feature kicks off with an exclusive interview with seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher.

Editor Andrew van de Burgt, who masterminded the redesign with art editor Amar Hussain, said: “There is a lot of expectation on our shoulders, given Autosport’s 59-year history, but we hope that the changes will make the magazine feel fresh and exciting for both new and existing readers.”

The new-look Autosport goes on sale tomorrow, March 12.
