Here’s the thread for the last race:
Ricciardo’s pass on the outside of turn 6..I think it was schumacher he overtook?
Ricciardo, Senna and Kobayashi all passed others on the outside of turn 5 which I thought were brave moves.
senna on round the outside od schumacher i think it was at turn 5.
Turn 5 overtakes were great. I think the first one they showed was Ricciardo overtaking someone round the outside, so that gets my vote!
Dunno about that overtake by Alonso. Wasn’t Perez just coming out of the pits? his line was tighter and his tyres not up to temperature… he was just standing there.
Alonso on Webber at the restart into T1/2 was very opportunistic and nicely pulled off
There were a whole bunch of overtakes around the turn 5-6 section, but my favourite was Webber around Rosberg at turn 5, beautiful!
Kobayashi on Schumacher?
I loved the turn 5 stuff as well, similar to Webber in China in 2009 through the similar corners (7 and 8 I think). Obviously there’s more grip off the racing line in the wet, but it was impressive how many drivers managed that.
@Raymondu999 Vettel’s pass on Rosberg? You mean the one where he used DRS to get past and Rosberg tucked in behind before the corner? Nothing against Seb, but that was nothing special at all. Alonso’s pass on Webber at the restart around the outside of turn 1 was better, because he actually had to muscle his way past. Button’s pass on Massa at the same corner was perhaps even better.
There were many great moves in the race, but my favourites were the many around-the-outside-of-turn-5 overtakes and Button and Alonso’s hang-it-right-around-the-outside-of-turn-1 passes. Great stuff. I’m not sure I can pick a single favourite though, unfortunately. And there’s probably many I’ve missed!
Vettel overtaking Webber, then Webber taking his position back.
