I'm sure I heard an article on radio the other day that JB scored more points than SV in the 2nd half of the season
I didn't watch any of the 2011 season, but could it be that SV was pacing himself? Fangio used to race on the basis of winning at the slowest possible speed; any faster was more risk for no gain. Was SV maybe applying that wisdom to his season? Just a suggestion.

Not that SV is in any way, shape or form comparable to Fangio; except that SV is indisputably far more accomplished at being intolerably annoying when he wins.
