Actually, his best form has come on lower bouncing slower courts, not the faster ones. The WTF is the example here.
The reason: slower courts mean he has more time to get in position better as well... and, all other things being equal, being able to get into position better is to his advantage more than it is to his more mobile peers.
He may be more suited to faster surfaces but the slower ones, as long as they're lower bouncing, are definitely where he's played some of his best tennis the past two years.
Federer also now has the advantage of not being subject to all the compulsory performance rules of the top 30 of the ATP and hence is better able to adjust his schedule to his body.
