Silly Season :

The period where the driver market is in full swing. Pundits speculate on where available drivers would be best suited and then re-consider their predictions as drivers lock in seats and the options decrease.

There are no set rules as to how this unfolds or when, but it is not uncommon for one move to trigger a run of deals being announced and the reason it is referred to as the silly season.
