Someone on this forum recently questioned whether this was actually confirmed by Honda or something that was just mentioned on one of the threads. I believe I had read this somewhere else myself but couldn't find the source again so I started doubting myself. Would be great if you can share it if you have it.GhostF1 wrote: ↑Tue Jul 14, 2020 2:37 pmLet's see how Hungaroring looks in regards to the power unit. Honda said they are focusing more on standard altitude performance. The only reason I can think of for them to specifically mention "low altitude performance" is because of an incoming tradeoff to high altitude performance (something Honda has been class of the field at). Could explain their harvesting disadvantages over last year if there turbo/ERS system is now a little compromised at high elevation tracks?
What is weird to me is this; how do you go from having an 'advantage', as it was put, to having such a disadvantage? Wouldn't they look at a better balance?
Or is it possible that the main difference is down to Mercedes optimising their cooling this year, thus being able to run at higher power outputs. This was their main downfall in 2019 in high altitude circuits, so could it be that this is actually the main differentiator in power from last year?
