I agree. When I read Alonso saying 'I need to attack and take risks' it usually precludes him crashing and then saying, 'It doesn't matter because it was either all or nothing'. If he's 20 points or more behind the Bulls going into the last two races then it's time to risk everything, but in Korea he just needs to keep doing what he's been doing the last few races - giving it his maximum, no mistakes, but keeping just that 1% inside the limit.
The fact that the two Bulls are so close, and fighting each other, almost guarantees that one (or both) will crash or **** up in one of the next races. As you say, he needs to be close enough to take advantage if/when that happens.
It's the type of season where everyone needs to attack every race. If every race has points, the race where you take things easy is the race where you lose points, the race where you settle for 2nd early in the season, is the race that could cost you the title.
This attack talk is just public spirited talk, it's good for pr and media, but I'm sure Alonso was attacking at Monaco on saturday when he crashed and at other races, he just kept quite about it.
Giving it his maximum is attacking. He's been attacking all season. I like the word attack, but seeing is believing and the ulitmate attack is the one actual attack, not the talking it up attack beforehand.
ATTACK!! ATTACK !!
There may come a point where he must drive it off the road for points or nothing, if he has too, he will.
One little slip for anyone and it's likely over, but as a driver you must drive the limits, especially when points are needed.
