"compound selection is always a balance between grip level and tyre life, and in such slippery conditions the soft wets provided more grip and riders will always prefer a safer level of grip rather than a tyre that can last much longer but offers no traction" I was under the impression from looking at the tires that they had no grip by the end of the race. So riders would choose a tire that would drop off before the race is finished rather than a tire that would last the entire race, potentially making a late charge in later stages... What it all comes down to in this statement is that the riders point out the problem (only one choice and not the right choice) and Bridgestone will not admit any problems. They have to say they were impressed and made the right choice. I agree that having single tire manufacturer makes the racing better.
