jez. you are still confusing the issue. nobody is denying that merc have great one lap pace, but it put such a strain on the tyres, through overheating, that they went backwards in the race. now in their test, merc changed their suspension pick up points and also with knowledge if how he new compounds would behave, they were able to find a way to make their tyres run cooler, thus delaying degradation. that allowed them to increase their race pase and save tyres. got it yet?.. but when they had to go back to the older tyres, their new suspension was not allowing those tyres to run cooler, and so they were back to grip problems again. fine if you want to believe different, but those are the facts as reported on a number of technical sites
