The returning to window part is key, I think. I'd like to hope that they have low but linear degradation, so that there is still benefit of coming in and changing the tyres, so that you can gain position; if degradation is too low, you might as well not stop at all.
Fortunately they have to run the Perelli nominated tyre at some point in the race :D
True; but what I really meant was, you're not likely to see any interesting and divergent strategies (I.e. Everyone would just stop once).
