Michael isn't so far down in the points because of the tyres though - it's because of all the bad luck he has had
A great champion knows how to make his luck - it's part of becoming WDC. Look no further than Alonso in 2010 - first half of the season his own mistakes, final race then his team mistake. So he did not become WDC. You can always say that Bahrain 2010 was not his fault (which it was not), however, the result was Fernando's.
So something in the package of Alonso 2010 was missing.
2012: something in the package of Schumacher is missing, as compared to Rosberg. You can call it luck, you can call it the sum total of the energies invested, as in the case of Alonso 2010. Why did they mess up Schumi and not Rosberg?
It's a different case than McLaren's where they consistently mess up both drivers, Button and Hamilton. And it's different to Michael Schumacher in his glory years - whenever there was technical trouble it used to hit Barrichello, not Schumi. Now it is reversed....
Whichever way you put it, "deserve's got nothing to do with it". Schumi has two points, however he accrued them and however he managed not to collect more points.
I enjoyed all four races, saw them all, watched Malaysia and Bahrain twice, btw - a breeze of fresh air, this 2012 season! My gut feeling tells me, that MSC is going to win a race in 2012 anyways, so no worries here. Just don't like Michael's whining mode.....
