Tuesday's meetings of the strategy group and F1 commission in London will be key staging posts on the way to 2021. There's a lot of ground to cover, including revenue distribution, the putative cost cap, and governance - along with the sporting and technical regulations.
The latter remains the most intriguing aspect of 2021 and the area of most interest to fans. What will the F1 cars of the future look and sound like? So far we've learned very little, and that's because the details have yet to be confirmed.
The good news is that for the first time a concerted effort has been made to come up with a solution that ticks all the boxes - one that creates close racing for fans while also providing a challenge for drivers and engineers.
