YEONGAM, South Korea (AP) — Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso sees no reason to change his approach for this weekend’s Korean Grand Prix even though his lead in the Formula One drivers’ championship has been reduced to just four points over defending champion Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull.
Alonso has won three races this year but none since the German GP in July. His lead was slashed further when he crashed out at the first turn of the Japanese GP, where Vettel took his second consecutive checkered flag.
Alonso says, ‘‘We've been attacking all races, the approach to all races is to get maximum points.’’
Alonso had a 34-point lead after winning in Germany, but was the innocent victim of first-lap collisions in Belgium and Japan.
