Richard, thats odd because he HIMSELF said they are identical on twitter. Also, from AutoSport.com: "A bit more info on Hamilton's tyres, in case you weren't around yesterday. The tyres are produced at Pirelli's Romanian plant as a back-up in case the rubber cannot be transported from its main Istanbul factory. Unmarked batches are brought to tests for quality testing. Each team has four sets, which do not count against their testing allocations."

re a previous comment by me, i received a call frombarca. flips time was actually set on supersofts. and his wheelnut exloded due to low temps. the wheelnut is magnesium, an cold can make it brittle

@Karl, I must say you certainly seem to know your statistics. Be that as it may I hope it isn't indicative of Lewis trying to grab the headlines but is a true reflection of the cars abilities without running on fumes. It well be exciting to see whether the Mercedes can produce this kind of time again tomorrow.

well done to the Mercedes F1 GP team for all the hard work they have obviously put in, to get the new 2013 challengers to this point where they are looking extremely good. Keep up the good work fellas. You have done an amazing job in such a short space of time and so on behalf of all my fellow Mercedes GP F1 fans and supporter I'd like to say thank you we appreciate what you are doing and you have our undivided loyalty and support thought the coming year.

Richard since everyone has had these tyres what diff does it make because hamilton was the quickest and if he can do the same sunday then this car is very very good and has one of the best drivers . Everyone knows your dislike of anything lewis does but even you must notice a good time when you see it .
