This week’s Autosport magazine takes a close look at the themes and storylines that will drive the 2016 Formula 1 season – including the prospects of a real title battle between Mercedes and Ferrari.

Marcus Simmons put that together and there are some eye-opening results. We also have Scott Mitchell’s coverage of the Mexico City Formula E round and Bruce Martin’s report from the IndyCar season opener.
