Honda admits freak Verstappen power cut could strike again

the important part:
No quotes about this however, so possibly a jorno's interpetation of event to some extent.Honda's system caused the initial loss of power as it cut in to avoid excessive revving damaging the engine, triggering a torque reduction when Verstappen was at full throttle.
After this, the FIA system – which is the same for all teams – filtered the engine back to full power.
Seeing as this problem is not done and dusted and could make a return, do we have a timestamp of when this actually happened, so we can check it in the onboard footage? Could it be honda are using a lower rev limiter in lower gears where wheel spin is more likely and verstappen simply hit that while jumping over some kerbs? But then if that was the case, FIA's system couldn't possibly add more power, since he's on the rev limiter anyway. Quite a mess all this.
