Yes, it's nice to have a break. And who can begrudge the teams and drivers the chance to chill out on the sofa with the odd cocktail or two?
But let's be honest, we know just how Daniil Kvyat and Carlos Sainz feel - all dressed up (in firesuits) with no place to go! In the meantime all we can do is obsessively check news sites and social media to find out what's going on.
At least Dany and Carlos seem to be getting on okay after their recent falling-out in the opening lap of the British Grand Prix last month. Dany ended up taking out his team mate at Becketts.
At the time, Carlos said it has been a 'killer' moment for their working relationship, but has since said that time has been a great healer. Let's see how well the truce lasts when they get back to work for the next race of the season at Spa on August 27.
