I'm impressed by how fast they work, this is a pretty substantial update.
How do you know that? Do you have a source?
Just a hunch
It was mentioned earlier in the year that there was free time to be found by improving the packaging in the power unit, and integrating it into the chassis. Given lead times it fits right into my earlier estimates, as well as statements made by Red Bull and Honda.
The rear end of the Red Bull seems like it was in need of development, not so much the floor, but the body work, and rear wing end plates. I would guess that changes for the power unit from Honda gives Red Bull more space in the rear end for changes, and it's logical that both updates would be timed to get maximum benefit.
