Just found this. Seems like its not out of the blue. In this case at least, the teams did test the new compound before racing them.

I still don't think it's a horrible thing. Change is the name of the game in F1. We're not all that far removed from the tire wars, and now at least, all teams use the same rubber. I think it's still an advantage to the big money teams when this kind of stuff happens, but what else is new.
