Lewis Hamilton lines Fernando Alonso up for a pass in Montreal

What was the best overtaking move of 2010?

I’ve picked ten of the best passes for position this year and your nominations are needed to complete the shortlist.

Make your nominations and the most popular suggestions will be voted on to select the best F1 pass of the year.

Lewis Hamilton, Australia – It’s not often you see cars passing around the outside of the high-speed turn 11 but Hamilton made the move stick on Nico Rosberg.

Lewis Hamilton, China – Double pass on Adrian Sutil and Sebastian Vettel at the hairpin.

Fernando Alonso, China – Controversial but quick-thinking pass on team mate Felipe Massa on their way into the pits.

Adrian Sutil, Valencia – Squeezed around the outside of Sebastien Buemi on a track usually regarded as an overtaking-free zone.

Nico Rosberg, Silverstone – Passed Jaime Alguersuari around the outside at Brooklands.

Sebastian Vettel, Silverstone – Barged his way past Adrian Sutil in an unsubtle, arms-and-elbows fashion.

Rubens Barrichello, Hungary – Braved some excessively tough defensive driving from Michael Schumacher to thread his Williams through an impossibly narrow gap.

Kamui Kobayashi, Japan – Launched his Sauber at Jaime Alguersuari at the hairpin and scrabbled past.

Fernando Alonso, Brazil – Patiently prised third place out of Nico H???lkenberg’s hands – and with the championship hanging in the balance he had to take care passing the Williams.

Robert Kubica, Abu Dhabi – In a race that was short on passing Kubica proved it could be done with a well-judged move on the outside of Kobayashi.

What do you think were the best passes of the year?

List the passes you think should be in the shortlist below and we’ll vote for the best pass of the year in two weeks’ time.

  1. for me the best was Kubica on Button. Robert had a car as you now in 2010.If he had a car close to first three teams , he would fight fo Champion. He is one of the best drivers. It is not problem to fight with the best car, problem is to fight with the worse one. Sorry Vettel shows this year in the best car his mistakes.
    Luck that he is Champion, Ferrari”s mistake
