It does seem a bit weird that Honda have it so wrong again. They know how powerful their 2016 PU was and surely they would have data predicting how much extra the Merc has. So you would think they would have tried to build a PU that was 5-10% better than Merc to compensate for Mercs 2017 development. OK so they probably wouldn't achieve it but if they sort out reliability they should have decent power. Can't believe Honda can still get things so wrong. I just hope the thing holding them back reliability wise is restricting power in a big way. Fix that and away they go, well hopefully.
