The worst bit is everyone else has already had their Covid shutdowns and Honda has theirs to come yet, which means they're going to lose development time to the others from here on in.
Not really, since any performance development can only be used for the 2021 season engine. If I'm not mistaken, oil and fuel upgrades are limited too, although not sure to which extent.
Unless, of course, they can roll out some 'reliability' updates that can deliver added performance. Something which we can expect all PU manufacturers to do in Belgium.
I would expect such performance gains to be quite minimal. Any major gains would be quite sketchy in my opinion.
