So where will Fernando Alonso be driving next year?

Will he stick with Ferrari for a sixth season? Or will his patience at the Prancing Horse finally run out, leading the Spaniard to accept a return to McLaren?

Wherever he ends up, it seems Alonso's future—if it were ever in doubt—is now completely in his hands.

As the driver market continues to heat up, two drivers who appear to be going nowhere are Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas, who are set to remain as Williams teammates for the second successive season in 2015, with Rob Smedley explaining the team's desire for stability.

Among the main talking points in the build-up to this weekend's Italian Grand Prix has been the changes made to the run-off area at Parabolica, one of the F1's great corners.

Although the purists and romantics will rue the arrival of asphalt to replace the gravel trap, Pastor Maldonado and Romain Grosjean, the Lotus drivers, have explained why the move will prove to be popular for drivers.

One man who has had no problem navigating Parabolica in the past is Sergio Perez, who equaled his career-best result of second place in the 2012 Italian Grand Prix.

And the Mexican is hoping that history will repeat itself this year.

While one driver is hoping to return to the famous Monza podium, another is hoping to stand on those steps for the very first time.

Daniel Ricciardo, the victor of the last two races, has explained what the Italian Grand Prix means to him.

Here's this week's roundup.
