Probably a bit of sandbagging - no way they didnít learn or improve anything from last years car. Still ways off on pace but thatís expected, thereís going to be tweaks over the first few races but no chance the W14 hasnít fixed most of what plagued the W13 - if not, then they really shouldíve started from scratch.

But donít really care for testing, letís just see what the first race brings. Testing is half seeing what you have and the other half mind games.

Outstanding news from Japan ,
According to HONDA Japan : We worked hard during the winter break .
We tested the HONDA PU really hard with 'very aggressive power mappings and we made the engine very reliable .
This was accomplished within the 2022/2023 FIA engine-freeze regulations .
With the reliability sorted in Japan RB can do a 'Brazil Merc' and go for more boost... but only if it's needed.

It will be an improvement, I'm confident in that... but I think people are overestimating just how much improvement they can truly make.

As of right now the cars are faster than last year. Red Bull is still the fastest with Ferrari now much closer (1kmh off top speed). Overall fastest cars is a very similar standing to last season.

I not sure of Wolff's choice of words there, pulling pin on grenade similar to Mattia's 'our engine will be a bomb', to me that sounds like it's about to blow.
