If you are one of the nearly 40 million people who has watched the famous 'Battle at Kruger' video on you tube, will fully understand how attack is the best form of defence.
It almost defies belief how the 'hunters', some lions and crocodiles, lose out to a herd of the 'hunted' buffaloes, who are angered at one of their calves being pounced upon.
That attack mentality has parallels with the way that Lewis Hamilton went about his business in China last weekend. From the outside, it seemed the world was out to get him - in the press, in the paddock and out on the race track. He was a hunted man.

But rather than let it all get to him and resign himself to his fate, he went out there and turned the tables. It was maximum attack. His victory left Ferrari a bit shell shocked about what had gone wrong, and helped move the Briton one step closer to the world title.
