Raikkonen on either one of the Williams or Saubers, I really forgot who it was. It was early and went back to bed shortly after, so forgive me! It was in turn 4/5, taking advantage of Massa slightly keeping up the other car, getting on the gas pedal mid corner to get in front was a risk and it paid off.
1 and 2)
Raikkonen made two good overtakes in that race. He took Kobayashi round the outside of turn 4, and then the other Sauber on the last lap around the outside at turn 15. (Wasn’t seen on camera but I’m sure he took Perez under braking for that turn)
Kobayashi repaid the favour on Kimi at the safety car restart. Got to the outside just as the cars started braking, any later and there might’ve been a big shunt. A good outbraking move round the outside.
Vettel’s overtake round the outside of Rosberg at turn 9 was brilliant and further disproves anyone who says he can’t race.
Watched the highlights on bbc it was basically a re run but vettels oass on nico was straight out of the top drawer, it disproves this presistent notion that he cant pass, that was ovetake of the day but kobayashi on kimi was really good and kimi passing him around the outside of turn 4 they were brilliant moves, race was brilliant and the photo finish was unreal. But 4 me seb on nico is the 1.
Vettel on Rosberg was a good pass, but it wasn’t a “classic” as some people are saying. Vettel had a run, and just clean outbroke Rosberg into the corner. It was exactly the same as a move down the inside, but he had to brake that little bit later and hold Rosberg down.
Best overtake of the race for sure, but it wasn’t the legendary move that some are making it out to be
I have to say that as much as Vettels move was brave, he would not have made that stick without the co-operation of Rosberg. Had he pulled that move around many other drivers he would not be on the race track coming out of the corner. It is a brave move but not as good as many of you think IMHO.
So what is a good overtaking move if it can’t be brave? Was Webber’s brave overtaking on Alonso in Eau Rouge not a good overtaking move? Are 90% of Hamilton’s overtaking moves not good moves?
