Alonso's F1 title bid on the line at Italian GP

Alonso's F1 title bid on the line at Italian GP

A day after FIA kept alive Ferrari's Formula One championship bid, Fernando Alonso knows his debut for the team at the Italian Grand Prix could prove just as decisive.
Alonso trails overall F1 leader Lewis Hamilton by 41 points with six races to go after the sport's governing body let Ferrari off without any points penalty on Wednesday for breaking the team orders rule.
Alonso says he'll be aggressive in Sunday's 53-lap race since it _ and the upcoming Singapore GP _ will likely decide Ferrari's season.
Alonso says "a DNF in the race (and in Singapore) will be our last chance and a goodbye to the championship."
Alonso offered little comment on FIA's ruling, but commended the decision to clarify the rule on team orders.
