It’s the one you’ve been waiting for, where Top Gear and Formula 1 collide in a handy to use magazine format. Jeremy Clarkson meets Lewis Hamilton down at the Top Gear test track, James May gets to grips with the six eras of F1 and the Stig thrashes the arse off F1’s safety car.
We get to grips with the new technical regulations, the new technical innovations that the BBC Sport F1 team are bringing to your telly, and we humbly talk about The Legend that is James Hunt.
Then we strong arm your new BBC commentary team into the Chevrolet Lacetti so they can have a crack at being stars in the telly show’s Reasonably Priced Car. “If anyone beats me today, I’ll cut my arm off,’ Eddie Jordan announced before they began, so you can count on it not being an uncompetitive outing.
We even manage to stop Sebastian Vettel from drinking cans of Red Bull long enough to have a chat with him about beating everyone this year.
And as if all that wasn’t enough, there’s a huge 40-page guide to the teams, drivers and circuits by David Coulthard, Eddie Jordan and Martin Brundle.
Plus loads of other great stuff.
So get amped for the new season of F1, only in the Top Gear Grand Prix 09 magazine, that’s on sale now.
F1 made simple – how hard can it be?
