There have been weeks of speculation surrounding his future, but now it appears Ferrari’s head of Engine and Electrics, Luca Marmorini, has left the team ahead of the second half of the season.

Ferrari’s power unit – along with its chassis – have been some subject of scrutiny this year and the team seems set for a technical shakeup.

This marks the second management shakeup for the team this season, after Marco Mattiacci replaced Stefano Domenicali as team principal earlier this year.

It may be a week before Thanksgiving, but IndyCar driver Robert Wickens is already obviously in a festive Christmas mood.

Wickens took to Twitter and Instagram Wednesday to post a video showing he just gave himself an early yuletide present: a Christmas tree:

“Got myself a tree! I figured it’s time to get into the Christmas spirit! It’s a very real tree and my arms are itchy to prove it!”

He even ended his tweet with a Christmas tree emoji.

And for good measure, Wickens — wearing a winter ski cap with his name on it — and some of the staff at his rehab facility broke into an impromptu version of “Oh, Christmas Tree!”

Check out what Wickens posted and enjoy a little early Christmas cheer sure to put a smile on your face:
