Big move for Williams, who snap up Jost Capito as CEO. He had a short stint at McLaren and huge success with VW in rallying. He is highly-rated and an appointment of intent. Smart move making Simon Roberts team boss permanently, too. #F1

Ricciardo says he's not sure what he will do in the future, if he wants to stick around in F1 and prove that his McLaren form was just a blip, he’s got no shortage of interested parties. Alpine and Haas leading the way for his signature.

Audi have decided to significantly up their investment in F1, the board voting to complete a full takeover of Sauber Group. Seidl will become Audi F1 Team CEO - and the face of the operation, as planned. Audi will enter their own PU in 2026. #F1

Love this. Found out Vettel spent yesterday evening taking pictures of his team, plus a selfie of himself, before uploading them for Monza's cardboard cut-out initiative. They'll be in a grandstand from tomorrow. #F1
