The mindset of taking a "Big risk" is to gain time. From a P1 perspective, you lose SO much time due to traffic. And traffic is where races are won and lost. It's obviously a balancing act, of when is a move so risky vs the benefit too small. Some "Simple risk assessment" is not simple. It is exactly what makes multiclass racing so interessting, and if you don't want to take part in that and just "drive your line" without sparing a thought to other classes on track, then you might as well just not drive multiclass racing. And In my book, if that IS the way someone actually thinks and drives, then they're no better than the "mindless" LMP1 driver. Plus the redbull ring is extra 'bad' in terms of traffic as it's such a short lap.
