Talk of bad luck/no panic and such like is understandable but for the hardened F1 followers that in some cases had been following GP/F1 racing from well before Alonso/Gene and most of the present FERREARI team members where even born such terms and or expressions doesn't go down in their book.
Yes, luck is a Part of winning but in most cases luck must be part of the own making/must be helped all along.
Alonso/FERRARI has already had more setbacks then they did in 2012, Alonso/FERRARI can't afford more of the same, they certainly need more than luck on their side.
The facts are both Alonso and FERRARI had made a mistake in two out of the four first races, FERRARI twice and Alonso once.

It's a lot easier to eliminate mistakes than it is to make a slow car fast. In that sense Ferrari are in a strong position this year, because their car has proven itself the quickest all round at a variety of circuits and on all the different tyre compounds.

RB are good on the hard tyres but are poor on the softs, and Lotus don't have the speed of the Ferrari. Right now Ferrari have the best car, they're just not getting the most out of it.

Ferrari have exhausted their luck last year. Looks like no w is the time to face bad luck. The only consistent guy being Kimi who had finished 20 or so races. But with Kimi, he had been to the brink of crash many times, but somehow managed to avoid it with his impeccable car control. But still a mechanical failure for Kimi can happen anytime considering it hadnt happened all year
