Maybe this speed advantage has to do with what James Allison said at the beginning of the season - something to the effect of "you'll know where we used the tokens when it becomes evident"
Aero? Maybe spent tokens on higher rake design it but took a while to adapt onto the car?
Engine? Maybe a new engine design that needed a lot of iteration to achieve the required reliability/power output?
Suspension? Maybe a new suspension setup that uses the cars natural disposition to change aerodynamic angle of attack under acceleration/deceleration more effectively?
Weight balancing/removal? Don't know any example of that to give.
It doesn't really seem so evident to me. If I was to guess based on the fact that he said it would become obvious at some point, I think it would have to be aero as that's the biggest change I can see.
