No, YOU are confusing the issue. Mercedes do not have grip problems, they have degradation/temperature problems. If they had grip problems, how could they perform so well so consistently in qualifying? You don't get pole position if you're lacking grip.
Fine mate, whatever, you're right and I'm wrong. The compounds are different and despite the FIA statement to the contrary, Richard's internet based research and comprehensive understanding of cross ply and radial tyre construction proves otherwise. I'll be sure to clarify any future FIA statements with you to determine their technical accuracy.
