You probably wont feel any difference. It will be minimal if you do... It might help if you're racing on a very low grip surface, but some people prefer less contact area to get the car around a corner, as there is less tyre to turn.
It's usually wet tyres that are narrower, as the compound is very soft, so probably benefical with there being less of it or high speed cornering could result in poor handling.
