With the downforce [in 2013] you could push easily and there was a safety margin when you overdid it that saved you. Now when you overdrive a bit, it’s a lot easier to overdo it and lose the whole lap, although maybe that was just because our car was very peaky.”

Comment of the day
Honda’s inability to update their 2015 engines as their rivals can may reduce the advantage they would have gained from entering in the second year of the new regulations:
Honda had the chance to analyse all power units, check the goods and the bad of every one, then operate the necessary modifidcations in order to have just the best ideas integrated into theirs.
Let’s be honest, Alonso’s move to McLaren was decided by the fact Honda had the chance&time to integrate just the best ideas into their power unit. But I’m pretty sure McLaren, Honda and Alonso won’t be happy at all.
