Have we got a packed edition for you this week! The big news that has everyone talking is the special one-off retro livery that McLaren will run this weekend in Monaco – be sure to check out all the Gulf blue and orange angles inside.


MotoGP returned to our screens this weekend as the series ventured to Le Mans. Mixed conditions provided for an exciting and unpredictable viewing as Ducati looked to take a second straight win over rivals Yamaha – Kyle Francis brings you up to speed.

Business was busy stateside, as the IndyCar Series played through its now traditional Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course race prior to the Indy 500 – with plenty of experience taking to the track, it would be a rookie, coupled with a duo of youths, that would steal the show, as Kevin Dejewski outlines.

The latest round of the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship saw it travel to Mid-Ohio for the first race of the WeatherTech Sprint Cup, which Davey Euwema reports for you, while Amanda Vincent brings you all the action from NASCAR’s 13th round, the Drydene 400, at Dover International Speedway.

On the feature side of things this week, Editor Fergal Walsh ponders Esteban Ocon’s chances of a 2022 Mercedes seat in F1, tech guru Rosario Giuliana looks at how Mercedes returned to top speed after their early season struggles while Claire Millins’ “Dear Carla” column has some advice for an F1 rookie, and Graham Harris previews the upcoming Rally Portugal.

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!
