So, Thursday in Paris is almost upon us, and I for one hope that after it we still have a world championship on our hands and a McLaren team with their reputation - not to mention world championship entry - still intact.
There were almost as many rumours and theories as lawyers in the Monza paddock. A couple of them I'll share with you, just to illustrate how silly things are getting.
"Here's a scenario for you," someone said. "McLaren lose their world championship entry for a year but it's not really too big a deal because they can busy themselves building Dave Richards' cars and we'll have Vodafone Prodrive Mercedes next year."
