What? I was unaware that there were dogs in the LMP1 class...
"Pug" is Peugeot's unflattering nickname.
According to who? That is preposterous.
I have no idea - but they've had the nickname for decades. Even fans of Peugeots call the cars "Pugs".
And thats been happening since 2000, when Peugeot got 12th in the German Grand Prix at the hands of Nick Heidfeld with the Prost racing team. Bringing this conversation slightly more on-topic.

Fezza, Beamer, Roller, Porker, Cossie, Jag, Lambo..theres a few more English motor-slang for you.
(English) people tend to shorten names with slang not only to make it quicker to say but for humourous effect. I guess that humour isn't understood elsewhere.
We are all talking about Alonso but you must also give credit to Ferrari for doing an awesome job, they didnt had the best car at the start of the season but they took everything they could out of it. They never did a mistake or had a mechanical problem unlike the other top teams. Really good job Ferrari.
Does anyone have an explanation for Mark Webber's lack of pace during the race?
He started the race in 8th place and finished in 8th place.
Did he lose his KERS system? Or did he have a "wet" setup on his car, which ended up being useless in the dry?
In the last frame it looks he's landed on Seb's Infiniti.
"You give me third position, me love you long time."
With lack of dry running, he probably didn't succeed in getting a good setup.
Well He was pretty much guaranteed 2nd had he overtook jensen in another spot so yes 3rd is a punishment.
That's what i wanted to know thanks.
Idea on the run-off:
Put sand immediately on the outside of a corner, then tarmac after that. That way, if a car runs wide, they go through the sand, onto the tarmac, and can then realign themselves and gain enough speed to make it back over the sand. That way it punishes drivers more than a tenth or two, but isn't race-ending.
There are some tracks that have something like that, but I couldn't find any example.
There's no need for tarmac on the exit of any slower corner, it only encourages drivers to use it. Grass is a perfectly acceptable surface. You over run the exit, you run the risk of it ending your race. That's how it should be, that's how it's always been.
Tarmac is a better surface than grass or gravel on the outside of the crucial pre-apex part of a corner or the whole of a quick corner, because there's little or no time to be gained by using it at that point.
The lies engineers tell their drivers
This one was just wrong lolol.
Pug became the short word for Peugeot litle after anglophone TV commentators (with notable exceptions) forgot how to say Peugeot and started saying 'Pugeaut'.
^the speed commentators LOL. "POO-JOE"....
