Except, you know, their second podium finish of the season. Your statement, and sentiment, ignore the facts. You're also referring to two total races as if that's enough data to constitute some sort of "trend".

After the W02, for all we know the minimal target for 2012 was already achieved in China. Probably not, but the point remains, we don't know. Invented narratives like these really don't tell us anything. We don't have enough facts to speculate so specifically.
