Still it looks like we are not the slowest of all...Something that was a dream a couple of months ago is not enough for us now.

To me our pace is still somewhat artificial. Just imagine if Alfa and Haas had and engine that's not 50 bhp down on Mercedes. We clearly improved over 2019 but our engine advantage is masking still the slowest car in the field.

My comparison is with the pace setters and the Mercedes team using the same PU.It has improved alot.

About the 50 bhp deflect, it's still a rumor by a german source I think.very unreliable, atleast with the size of the deflect.The very same source which claims the gap is 50 now between Mercedes and Ferrari, tells the difference was 70 last season in Quali mode.Whether this 120 bhp difference is way off the truth or 10% of power output doesn't bring much of a difference on track considering the gap Haas shows on track this season.

The PU effect this season is over rated.Performances on 2 power circuit weekends in Austria and a high downforce one in Hungary proves that Mercedes, Williams and Racing point have made good steps on aero side, though combined with abit of engine help, can't deny that.
