Not really. The teams that do their homework in practice know what the tires will deliver. I doubt that anyone's surprised come Sunday. (Unless it rained in practice.)

Some teams do better on these tires, other teams do worse. Some teams are better at some tracks. Other teams get performance at different tracks.

'twas ever thus.
