Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

Just a note, Lando has chosen No.4 for his race number in 2019 rather than the No.47 he used as a reserve driver in 2018.

I hope they change the livery though. Mcl33's was a bit bland.

I agree, it was too simple for my taste, hopefully they will do a better job this year

As long as McLaren produce a decent car then I'll be ok with it, I'm not expecting much from Renault. But we shall have to see on that aspect
of things.

Until James Key turns up there, turns the place upside down and is given time to change the team's direction I fear we're in for more of the same.

The livery will largely remain the same barring minor changes going by what Zak has been saying about brand identity. The livery imho was really nice, uncluttered and easily identifiable.

I'm afraid it'll be more of orange really. It's their new post-Ron identity.

Dont know what is wrong with orange and simple livery design. If we take a Ferrari as an example, they looked much better when they were simply red, now with all that random white color they look like cheap plastic ripoff toy cars.
If i would get the money to start my own F1 team, i would revive Arrows

I 100% agree with this. The nicest and most recognizable car was the plain blue Sauber. I loved it.
many Sign-written cars remind me of a wall covered with 'tag' like the underpass, in particular the Ferrari mirror sign writing. Looks like someone who thinks themselves 'artful' found an aerosol of white.

What could possibly be more recognisable at a glance than a red and white mclaren or scarlet Ferrari
