The Silly Season

What's more fun than the rumors and speculation about the shuffle of F1 drivers and teams for next year?

It's called "The Silly Season" because it's a lot like musical chairs. A driver doesn't want to be the only one left standing without a ride when the music stops.

Doesn't it seem like The Silly Season starts earlier and earlier?  One reason may be because this year Schumacher wrapped up the championship so early. Teams figure if they can't contend for the championship, they might as well start looking forward to next year.
