i'd suggest the opposite. since Michelin left, Bridgestone has done very little in development.. and in fact has slowed the pace of the tyres.

Start with the options, Stop arround lap 15 (average track length) for primes, 22 laps later stop for your second set of primes and go for the remainder 20ish laps on them.
Altho some tracks will have to be 3 stoppers i think, Hungaroring and Interlagos spring to mind.

I believe that the current trend of multiple stops has a lot to do with fuel weight penalty and that it may be biasing our expectations.
