The chaotic Tuscan Grand Prix and the 88th Le Mans 24 Hours feature in this week's Autosport magazine, out today (17 September).

Formula 1's first race at Mugello was an eventful one and we assess who did what during the multi-car accidents that required two red flags.

Valtteri Bottas once again narrowly missed out on victory but, as Alex Kalinauckas's report shows, there is a good chance Lewis Hamilton would have defeated his Mercedes team-mate even without the stoppages.

The six-time champion is now 55 points clear in the title race and a win next time out in Russia would put him on a par with Michael Schumacher's record of 91 F1 successes.

Before that, the world's biggest endurance race will take place at Le Mans. The event is three months later than usual, but we have still produced our usual 52-page free supplement.

Gary Watkins asks whether privateer Rebellion can topple the mighty Toyota team at the front, and argues that Aston Martin is well-placed to take its first GTE Pro victory in the 24 Hours since 2017. James Newbold also talks to ex-F1 racers Anthony Davidson and Paul di Resta, who both have chances to end their Le Mans bad luck if they have strong runs in LMP2.

Aside from the usual team-by-team guide, which covers all the teams and drivers, we also bid farewell to LMP1. The World Endurance Championship's top class is set to be replaced and so we pick out the top 10 races of the era, and talk to one of the category's best privateers as he is reunited with his old racer.

It's not the first time Le Mans has taken place in September, and the last time provided plenty of drama and memorable stories. We take a look back at the 1968 race with some of the key players who were there.

Elsewhere in the magazine, we bring you all the action from the weekend's events - including Formula 2, DTM and all the UK club racing - and pick out the top five F1 Ferraris.
