    Get F1 Racing every month, I get Autosport occasionally, the British GP pre and post race ones, Monaco, season preview, season review etc

    I like Villeneuve in F1 Racing, vaguely remember him from 06, v. opinionated in his column

    As a whole I prefer Auto-sport, but in terms of F1 news it has to be F1 Racing, Autosport are overly bias towards British F1 drivers, all ways hyping them up for the smallest of things.

    Im not too keen on Pat Symonds race reports though, prefer how Peter Windsor wrote them

    @GeorgeDaviesF1 that man is amazing with his race reports – very eloquent. Having said that; don’t read the reports for the technical and driving stuff – he’s not very good, and the little stuff he does post is usually wrong.

    I buy both, although I download Autosport digitally from Zinio to read on my Android tablet.

    Anyone here remember the old Formula 1 News mag that from years ago? Now that was a proper F1 mag if ever there was one!

    I also buy Motorsport magazine.

    I find F1Racing biased too @Faraz . Both are great but I found Autosport more in depth and covered a wide range of sports but if you just want light F1 stuff then F1 Racing is great and usually does a few good features and interviews. That said, I’m likely to cancel my subscription and save my money as there’s always the internet and buying biographies if I get really desperate for a fix.

    F1 Racing for sure. More focused and better insight and fully dedicated to F1. Autosport is very good though but I don’t like other motorsports as much as F1 to warrant me getting it more than twice a month.

    @raymondu999 I know, I meant that out of them both I think F1 Racing is biased too, sorry!

    Autosport is great, but very expensive to buy on a weekly basis, or even just for the race reports. I feel you don’t get enough for your money.

    F1 Racing is good too, but I don’t think it is as good as Autosport.

    If F1 Fanatic did a magazine it would be fantastic! Would that be possible @keithcollantine ?

    Only buy Autosport when there’s been car launches, when my fave driver wins, or I like the cover photograph. :D

    I feel that Autosport magazine has been getting worse over the past few years, I can’t quite put my finger on why this is though.

    I get certain autosport last year were, Preview, Post China, Post Monaco, Post Canada, Pre and Post GB, Post Belgium and Italy, Post Japan, Post Korea, Review

    Most of those have other reports aswell as the F1 which is influence, problem is, Le Mans, 10000km Silverstone, are on different weekends to GP’s this year
