Merc surprising at speed of engine development

Honda has said it's surprised at the pace of engine development from Merc after an agreement to freeze engine development from the first race this year.
Yamamoto has said it's puzzling how Merc has shown to have made such progress during the shutdown period and there is speculation that they did it in some other form. It just shows that the spending cap probably won't work. FIA should shake a leg and investigate.

yeah but actually this year's engines Merc' is using been developed not in last 7 days.. it was being developed starting from last year and in winter testing they were strong as well already.. i guess Honda is just shitting on Merc' cause they still didnt provide Red Bull a bullet proof engine.. Max had some problems even today.. nagging FIA towards Merc' ll never end i guess from Red Bull and Honda.. sorry but the best thing was said by Ricciardo in winter testing.. it was like we re the ones that actually need to push things further to catch them but they re putting more efforts than us still.. it should ve been the other way around.. that was a point on comment..

edit: found it.. 12:53..
it was about DAS but its a team sport and everyone has to walk towards the same point..
