The summer months generally signal the arrival of Formula 1's silly season. The drivers will have seen what they felt in winter testing translate into good or bad early results, and the trends of a campaign will be established. Those heading towards the end of a contract will be looking to the form guide when considering a move, while teams will be constantly assessing how the present will change in the future.
This year, it's all rather different. First of all, there's nothing very silly about 2020 given the horrors of the coronavirus pandemic and the serious (and needed) movements to make progress on racial equality.
Secondly, and ultimately trivially given the challenges facing society, the headline moves in the driver market have already taken place - with Sebastian Vettel's Ferrari exit news triggering a wave of seat-swapping, and Carlos Sainz Jr and Daniel Ricciardo then announcing respective deals with the Scuderia and McLaren.
