In the magazine: Raikkonen ready to win at Spa
In an exclusive interview in this week's AUTOSPORT magazine, Kimi Raikkonen rates his Formula 1 comeback season so far and explains why Spa offers a great chance to get that elusive win

Kimi Raikkonen's Formula 1 return season has almost achieved as many column inches as the rest of the field put together this year. But still the Finn is yet to register a comeback victory.

In this week's AUTOSPORT magazine, the 2007 world champion tells Edd Straw that while he is satisfied with the way things have gone so far, there is plenty more to come from the Lotus E20.

Is a Belgian Grand Prix win out of the question? His answer might surprise you...

WEC Silverstone: There were no prizes for guessing that Audi's R18 e-tron quattro would repeat its Le Mans win in the hands of Andre Lotterer, Marcel Fassler and Benoit Treluyer. But, as Gary Watkins reports, the Toyota TS030 was much closer to victory than it looked.

Formula Renault 3.5 Silverstone: Wins for F1 reserve drivers Jules Bianchi and Sam Bird, under the watchful eyes of Glenn Freeman, brought both right into the championship hunt on a wet/dry weekend on which points leader Robin Frijns could have been car-less!

BTCC Knockhill: On the championship's annual trip across the border, it was time for Rob Collard to notch up his first double win in the series for the WSR BMW team. Dave Newsham added a race-three victory too, all watched by Kevin Turner.

IndyCar Sears Point: Team Penske has owned the California road course when it comes to IndyCar racing over the past few years. AUTOSPORT's very own Aussie Mark Glendenning watched two of his countrymen, Ryan Briscoe and Will Power, secure another one-two for the squad.

WRC Germany: Who could possibly prevent Sebastien Loeb from taking an unprecedented ninth victory on Rallye Deutschland? Nobody, as it turned out. Instead David Evans watched the Frenchman's opposition self-destruct on the stages around Trier.

DTM Zandvoort: The classic Dutch venue played host to one of the best DTM races of the past decade as Edoardo Mortara enhanced his growing reputation in the series with his second win of the year. As Jamie O'Leary reports, however, he was just one of five men that could easily have been victorious.

World of Sport: Action from the NASCAR Sprint Cup, F3 Euro Series, Scandinavian Touring Cars, Brazilian V8 Stock Cars, Australian V8 Supercars and ADAC GT Masters.

Sports Extra: Rallycross looks set to get its own world championship next year following a decision by the FIA to lose the 'European' tag from the ERC and to employ crack sponsorship agency IMG to raise the profile of the sport.

From the archive: It won't have gone unnoticed that this weekend marks Michael Schumacher's 300th grand prix start, fittingly at the same circuit Spa where it all began 21 years ago. Gary Anderson, a key part of the Jordan squad that employed the German for that weekend in 1991, reveals why he thinks Alex Zanardi could have done just as good a job.

Race of my Life: Grand Prix racer, Spa 24 Hours winner, Formula 3000 champion... All ways of introducing Christian Danner. Find out what the German reckons was his greatest race.
