McLaren-Honda may be the most improved team of the 2016 Formula One season, but you won't find Ron Dennis celebrating that achievement.

As far as the chairman—synonymous with the team's dominance with Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost in the late 1980s and early '90s—is concerned, McLaren are still nowhere near good enough and have nothing to shout about just yet.

But Dennis is convinced his team are on the right track, offering an update on their preparations for 2017, when they aim to win a grand prix for the first time since 2012 and even end their long wait for a world championship.

As McLaren's preparations for next year's major regulation changes ramp up, Williams' appear to have stalled slightly.

The Martini-liveried team identified a replacement for the retiring Felipe Massa almost two months ago, yet they are still yet to announce newly crowned European Formula Three champion Lance Stroll as the Brazilian's successor.

And the reason for the delay can only be described as "typical F1."

After several months of simmering, the driver market is finally beginning to boil, with Nico Hulkenberg's surprise switch from Force India to Renault set to trigger several moves in the midfield.

Renault are still searching for a team-mate for Hulkenberg, who is delighted to join a manufacturer team, while Force India appear to be close to appointing his replacement, with Manor's Pascal Wehrlein revealing he is hopeful of securing a promotion to the Silverstone-based outfit.

Another driver on the market is Esteban Gutierrez, who is still not guaranteed a second season with Haas in 2017. The Mexican has expressed his frustration with the delay but is confident a contract extension will be agreed in due course.

Here's the latest roundup.
