Rotten Run of Luck or Something More Sinister?

What a horrendous horrorshow the start of the season has been for Michael Schumacher.  Co - commentating on Free Practice 1 in Valencia for Sky, Allan McNish was of the opinion that when a driver notches up only two finishes out of seven, the driver himself must be looked to when apportioning blame.  Clearly the only race he has watched this year is the Spanish Grand Prix, because that is the only one where the blame can really be laid at Schumi's door. 

Forced off the track in Australia due to a gearbox problem.

Front right wheel wasn't secured properly in China.


A DRS problem in qualifying and a gearbox change meant a start from 22nd on the grid in Bahrain.  He finished 10th.


A fuel pressure problem caused another retirement in Monaco.

Schumacher explains the DRS problem in Canada.
There have been other times when he has seemed less than jolly with decisions made by the team.  In Canada they made the decision not to send him out for his final qualifying lap.

A cynic could be forgiven for thinking that Mercedes are sabotaging his season in favour of Rosberg...
