McLaren-Honda still not good enough for making it into Q2. Alonso just made it in on P15 in Q1, but it was only thanks to one Ferrari and one Williams having the issues. Should read, "Still not good enough in canada for making it into Q2..." If anywhere is going to show up the lack of pow...

Verstappen to have a 15 place grid penalty. I doubt Nasr and Button will qualify, so that leaves 18 cars and three cars will be out after Q1. Why will Verstappen not qualify into Q2?

Re: What defines a "dog" of a car?

I think it is one of those sayings that defies its own definition. Dogs can be very well trained but in this connotation I think it refers to a dog that wont do what you tell it to. A dog of a car is one that doesn't respond to driver input predictably IMO.
