There are many parts on electricity. They allowed to use 120 kw. I think ( correct me if I am wrong ) same electric motor can produce more power if battery is enough. This is conrolled by Control electronics. Mercedes is best in this area. İf merc can use Electric power (for example) for 30 sec per lap and with whole 120 kw because of good regenaration, Ferrari can use 29 sec with 120 kw (or maybe for 29 sec 115 kw - I think this cause more gap then current Ferrari and Merc difference), I think this can make enough for Ferrari and Mercedes performance difference.
Maybe honda is too behind in this area. Maybe when Honda spread its electric power to whole lap Honda can use only 110 kw ?
(All these are my assumption )
Honda according to Wazari san used the "short and thick" deployment strategy, use maximum assist where the car is slowest and use less where the car is fastest. The data kind of supports this, the McLaren is equal to the other 3 for the first 1/3rd of the straight, and where the Honda starts winding back MGU-K deployment, the other 3 are still going strong. So McLaren may have full power down the first 1/3rd, then by the end the MGU-K is only able to deploy 40kW while the Ferrari is deploying 110, and Mercedes can just go full 120kW deployment regardless of the length of straight. That deployment difference could be why the Honda looks so hopeless down the straights, and why the peak power difference isn't as big as we think it is.
A classic case of a very fast runner without a lot of stamina, he can be fast for 400m but can't sustain the pace for the full 1,600m, so you either pace yourself and go slower, or go as fast as you can for as long as you can but get winded and be really slow at the end.
