It's summer holiday time for the F1 circus with the traditional August break. But for some, there is still some work ahead...
Before the official holidays begin, a series of key meetings are scheduled to take place among F1 team bosses and key players.
The first involves team bosses in London on Thursday, while Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Mercedes' Niki Lauda will sit down on Saturday with Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo.
The main theme is the need to react to the sport's supposed flagging popularity by adjusting the regulations.
La Gazzetta said the themes uppermost in Ferrari's mind is the need to free up the possibility for technical innovations, relax the engine 'freeze', and increase track testing.
Also potentially on the table is a proposal offering a championship point for the fastest driver on Fridays, the newspaper revealed.
