I'm with you. I prefer the old logo from the early 90's and the tv-graphics from the 90's to the 10's.

Retro: The day Hakkinen “kicked Senna’s ass” at McLaren

https://sports.yahoo.com/retro-day-h...055043007.html

I've read a couple McLaren books, and both were similar to this very good article that showed Mika awoken Aryton toward the end of 1993.

I'm still baffled why he quit F1. And why he never had an opportunity to get a Le Mans win to get the triple crown.

He explains his F1 quitting decision in the podcast but no mention of LeMans.
Also gets into why the early 2000's F1 cars were the best to drive especially on qualifying runs.
Bluntly honest, no BS, and despite getting arguments with Patrick Head he also respects him technically.
Amazing how a simple phone call with Frank Williams got him into F1 and out of his Ganassi contract.

I still think something is missing.
The way he explains it, he says he's driving for McLaren, he get's an offer from Chip Ganassi to drive in NASCAR, then Ron says leave now, since your mind is elsewhere (in America), so he quits mid season. Very odd. Did the CGR offer come out of the blue, or did he pursue it himself because he wanted an out? My speculation is that he liked America rather than Europe, and he didn't like the environment within McLaren, so he asked Chip if there was an opening to go back to the states. It's just such a weird move for any driver to make.

​​​​ Some beautiful cars there. The regulations from the last few years gave ensured that modern cars will be ugly. From the stepped nose, to the point nose, to the oversized fins, to he Halo.

thx for posting, kinda a weird list since there are some nice looking cars there (Ferrari 641, Lotus 79, MP4/4, BT53, FW14B, Lotus 97T, ...) but some ugly ones as well (BGP001, BT44, BT46, WR1, JS11, Tyrrell 008,...)
and there where some better examples (Benneton B191 was elegant and beautiful over the B186).

Two cars missing that kinda surprised me was the McLaren MP4/2C and Ferrari 126C2
