HRD sakura boss Asaki think Honda's spec4 power unit is very close to Mercedes now.
"The combustion concept we found in last year's spec3 has evolved to this year's spec3,the spec4 is also its extension. Its not the end,there is still room for improvement.The target was to be equal to Mercedes this year.
We dont have a clear image in qualifying this time so i dont know yet,but I think that the possibility is not zero with this spec 4."
It is good, but still a funny target when Mercedes is not the best power unit anymore.
Difficult to judge when Mercedes runs more downforce (which probably means more drag) then Ferrari. I presume they are quite equal
Well Honda's target was mentioned at the end of last year, that 2019 would be to match Mercedes. Only this year have Ferrari gone up to another level and as mentioned, a fair amount of that advantage would be down to aero concept.
