Renault said that their qualy mode is worst between 4. If Honda match with renault after second PU Honda will have Qually mode advantage over renault. In fact they already have it according to Abiteboul.
Sorry but what? Maybe I'm going crazy but when did Abiteboul say that? I recall nothing of the sort.
Abiteboul said that on TV in a interview. Honda had last year already a Q mode, Renault didn't.
I may hope you are not going crazy right now.
If you are talking about this

Then you may be a little confused. He didn't say that they didn't have a mode used for qualifying. He simply stated that this mode wasn't "magic" like what other teams have.
Every PU has a multitude of different ECU modes that can be selected to save fuel, maximise power over the whole race with minimum fuel saving (assuming race strategy goes to plan), an overtaking mode, qualifying and everything in between.
Every team has always had a qualifying mode. Just Mercedes and Ferrari's own is miles better than Honda and Renaults own.
Also that was for 2017....not 2018.
