I suspect what it means is that probably for financial reasons the balance of power has changed in the relationship between Repsol and Honda.

There is precedent in Motorsport; Marlboro seem to be running Ferrari’s F1 team currently.

Remember, a Spanish premier class champ seemed like a distant goal until Dani came along.
