Sebastian Vettel believes he and Fernando Alonso are currently equally deserving of the title and insists the one who eventually ends up as the winner, will have been the most deserving.
The pair have been involved in a closely fought battle which currently sees Vettel ahead by just ten points after a difficult weekend for the German in Abu Dhabi, but he insists they have suffered issues on an equal basis.
"If you look at the whole season with 20 races, you do have incidences that you don't like to have, you probably have some retirements due to technical problems," he told the official F1 website.
"It is very hard to run so many races without incidents. It is not something that is part of your calculation, but you have to be prepared when it hits you not to stand there with eyes wide open.
"If you look at the races we've done so far I think Fernando's and my DNFs or calamities are equal," he added.
At the end of the season, whomever comes out on top deserves to be there according to the 24-year-old who admits he's in a good position heading into the final two races.
"I still believe that the driver who deserves it most will be champion.
"No doubt we are in a very good position now and I hope we do well until the very end to make sure that we deserve the glory."
