    "McLaren is breaking with tradition this year in the naming of its Formula 1 car, dropping the MP4 tag that has been used since 1981."

    I don't think it's breaking tradition but more like removing every hint of Ron Dennis from the 2017 car. P4, or rather Project 4, was Dennis' old business name before buying into McLaren.
    Currently:
    Peugeot 206 GTI
    Previously:
    Peugeot 205, Honda CR-Z, BMW 3-Series (2), Audi A4 (2), BMW Z3, Mazda MX-5 (2), Saab 900, Morris Mini, Mazda 121, Nissan Pulsar and Holden Gemini.

    well i think it is just a tragedy.
    first, they eviscerate the best GT car names ever: the "MP412C". (how could anyone not love it?), to just the "12C". without doubt the second best name ever. and now... this. <sob>











    (ps, the rats were coming up a hole in the cement, which has, by erosion, become connected to the storm water drain. basically a protected pathway straight into my house)
