The key point is WHERE the added performance has been added Realist. Yams weak spot was never over a lap in clean air, it was in negating the HRC's jump out of corners and initial acceleration - they'd pull away so there was too much to make up on the brakes to pass them a lot of the time. NS now reckons that factory yam have nullified that Honda 'edge' - which has been its best weapon in fending off a Yam trying to pass. So if the Yam can GET by, it then has the handling package to stay there on the rest of the lap. If NS is right (& he usually is) this suggests that HRC as the strongest package may now be in doubt. We'll have to wait & see. IMO I think the Honda's may still have the edge at COTA. If they don't & JL & VR can push them hard then I think we'll have a good idea that Spalders is on the money.
