Silly season reaches fever pitch at Monza

Nico Hulkenberg is back in the headlines as the new frontrunner to replace Mick Schumacher at Haas next year. “We have bit of a silly season with the driver market this year,” the Italian said. Toto Wolff has hinted that Schumacher, 23, may find a new role as Mercedes’ reserve driver – although Daniel Ricciardo is also linked with that role. “Daniel deserves a place on the grid – Mick too,” said the Mercedes boss. We haven’t progressed at all with the talks as far as the reserve driver is concerned. It also depends on what happens in the driver market with the other places,” Wolff added.
