If you grew up a gearhead here in the States, you've probably seen a J.C. Whitney catalog. They have almost anything you can think of for your car. Even a chrome donkey with light up eyes that looked out of you back window. His eyes blinked in time with the turn signals.
This was a kit they offered to hot up your Renault Dauphine/Caravelle/Gordini. It promised a 10% increase in horsepower. In the real world, that would have taken it from 32 hp to a blazing 36.2 ponies!
I know that Dare had a Dauphine back in the day. So did a high school buddy of mine.

The teams have unanimously rejected Pirelli's proposed tires for next season. They were supposed to encourage more close in racing. Instead, they were labeled as a “disappointment” by Sebastian Vettel and described as “very weird and very bad” by McLaren’s Carlos Sainz.
The same tires used in this past season will be used again for 2020.

A seasonal reminder to all GPWizard members to consider a donation, however small, to the site.
Wizzo gives us all a great site to hang out on but the donations are behind the goal for this year.
To ensure he can keep GPWizard running can I urge fellow members to put something, however small, in the pot before Xmas, or at anytime.
There's a bar on the left hand side of the screen page, just click through and see how easy it is to turn a few quid/bucks/pesos/euros or whatever into a timely boost for Wizzo.
Let's show him we care about GPWizard and the home from home it provides to us all.

A few thoughts.
1) If Hamilton DOES go to Ferrari for 2021, then it's a safe bet they'll be a championship team
2) If Ferrari is looking for a driver in 2021, LeClerc will be the 'big dog', does Ferrari want someone to challenge him? Or are they going to look for someone to be Charles' rear gunner?
3) Vettel points out that Lewis owns several Ferraris. It makes sense not to hire him so he can keep purchasing road cars to fund the team!
