In the round-up: Mattia Binotto has said Ferrari will make the decision on which of their junior drivers to promote to Formula 1 next year before the end of the Formula 2 season.

What they say

Of the five Ferrari Driver Academy members in Formula 2, Mick Schumacher is leading the championship and looks most likely to be picked to be on the grid for the 2021 F1 season. As Alfa Romeo has confirmed its two drivers for next year, Haas is expected to sign him, and Binotto indicated a decision will come soon:

I don’t think we will wait for the final race in Bahrain, and for Abu Dhabi then. I think it’s something that we may decide in within the next couple of weeks.
