If there were any doubts following Ferrari's failed attempt to sign Adrian Newey last month, silly season is in full swing.
The latest rumour doing the rounds concerns the future of Lewis Hamilton, who was reportedly seen at Ferrari's base in Maranello, Italy, earlier this week.
Speculation has also surrounded the future of the Caterham team, although the outfit's owner has maintained that their short-term health is more than good enough to allow them to take part in next weekend's Austrian Grand Prix.
Meanwhile, it has emerged that the ban of refuelling is not enough for Formula One to halt its search for improvements in fire safety, with a revolutionary technology set to take grand prix garages to the next level.
On the subject of safety, Felipe Massa and Sergio Perez were considered lucky to emerge unscathed from their dramatic last-lap tangle in Montreal last weekend.
The sheer violence of the shunts led to some heated words being exchanged in the aftermath of the Canadian Grand Prix, with a popular Williams employee finding himself criticised by a legend of the team this week.
Finally, Red Bull have acknowledged that they still have some way to go to catch the pace-setting Mercedes team despite Daniel Ricciardo's maiden grand prix victory at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
