Stop trying to put words in my posts - I said the GRIP would be virtually the same and made no mention of degredation. My point is proven in the fact that Mercedes have been on the front row of the grid in every race this year except Australia and Malaysia. Hamilton had pole at both the British and German Grands Prix, indicating the grip provided by the differing construction methods was most likely not an issue. I understand what you're saying and agree with you in that the tyres will react and possibly degrade differently. What I'm saying, and what you can't seem to grasp, is that the peak grip on offer over one lap is unlikely to change very much if at all. This means that in the context of lap times, i.e. what started this discussion, my point still stands.
