Despite COVID-19, Formula 1 managed to still start its traditional round of car launches this past week. First out the box was the new MCL35M from McLaren with their new Mercedes power unit in the back. They were quickly followed by AlphaTauri, nee Toro Rosso. Phillip Horton has all the launch news and takes an in-depth look at the new AT02 from the Faenza squad.

As far as race action is concerned this week, Amanda Vincent has the full story on what happened when the NASCAR Cup Series' boys tried out the Daytona International Speedway's Road Course for the second time ever. The action was rather intense...
Then Jerry Williams has a full preview on next weekend's WRC Arctic Rally Finland which replaces Rally Sweden this year. Snow is guaranteed for once and the rally has the biggest World Rally Car entry for a long time. And our resident technical guru Rosario Giuliana has digitally dissembled McLaren's new MCL35M; read his insight into how the Woking team fitted the new Mercedes powertrain into their 2020 challenger.
And finally we welcome our new Formula E reporter Hannah Prydderch who takes over from Chris Soulsby. Hannah previews the start of next Friday night's first round of the 2021 FIA Formula E World Championship while Chris has a farewell column...

And as always we have all the usual news, views and stories in this week's edition of the most widely read weekly motorsport magazine in the world!
