Sorry when I posted the lap count, the session wasn't over and add the delay of web info, I am glad they got even more laps than I thought!

Yes, but still a good amount of laps in the baking heat, all I read on various forum before the season began was that Newey's packaging when they went to the hotter climates would be blowing up the Honda left and right, but so far they are the ones who haven't had any issues, long may it continue.

Knock on wood. My friend and I have some heated debates about Honda's performance, and I'm of the mind that things are looking fairly good from what we've seen. Always room for improvement, but RB's success is making McLaren's stint with Honda look even worse somehow.

not it hasn't because as Honda started again with McLaren, the egnine was terrible..... but it wasn't all Honda's fault either.

RB is baring the fruits of the learning process Honda has gone through in the last few years

It makes McLaren look even worse in my eyes. It seems obvious that McLaren was a hindrance to development instead of an aid as RBT is.

I don't think Honda would be near the current state if they stayed with McLaren. There's a reason they were happy to run away from them...

could be possible, but we can't really tell can we?
I always say .. if two are argueing/fighting both are to blame..... how much the one or the other is to blame, nobody can really tell

Well, only McLaren was arguing and complaining all the time. Honda kept increasingly silent. (Even before that only made bold claims)

PS: you messed up the quotes.
