When Lewis Hamilton squatted down beside his smoking Mercedes at Sepang last Sunday and placed his head in his hands, I imagine he was thinking 'why me again?'.
And who can blame him? He felt a sense of injustice. The Briton was just 15 laps away from winning the race and reclaiming the championship lead.
He had dominated the weekend up until that point and it felt as if things were turning around after three frustrating races, that had led to team-mate Nico Rosberg gaining the upper hand.
