Auto Motor und Sport Article (13/02/2018)

Auto Motor und Sport, 01/02/2018

Over the past few years Michael Schmidt, Motorsport Editor of auto motor und sport, has been faithfully sending the latest Formula 1 programme covers upon his return from each Grand Prix. Over the winter he wrote an amusing and insightful article (original DE; translated EN) about the covers that have graced Formula 1 programmes since the World Championship began in 1950.

Thank you to Michael for the props and to all the contributors past and present for making this collection of covers what it is today. Hello also to any auto motor und sport readers Michael enticed here!
