    Yeah I don’t think we’re going to have many takers for this one! Thanks for setting the thread up, though.

    I was watching the race from an unfortunately commercial-infested broadcast done by ESPN Star Sports (Gary Paffett commentating, mind you) but I actually didn’t see any overtakes at all. Were there? I thought there must have been, but I probably missed them in the commercial breaks, through which I survived using Twitter commentary from f1fanaticlive and also autosportlive – but even then there were no mentions of passes.

    I liked the one where Button overtook a small portion of Heikki’s car, and then decided that it would be best to leave it at that.

    I think just about the only wheel to wheel was Hamilton and Vettel’s drag race up Beau Rivage then… Can we nominate that as the pass of the race? :P

    Kovelainan on Button going into Rivage. I know Button just exited the pits, but still, Kovelainan passed him while they were wheel-to-wheel, in a much inferior Caterham. Win!

    And no KERS to boot!

    Mind you it was like a reverse of Suzuka 2009 – Fisichella and Kovalainen pitted, and they were at the pit exit equal. One of them (can’t remember which) thought of KERS and pressed it, winning the drag race to T1.

    It must’ve been Kovelainan as Mclaren, along with Ferrari and Renault were the only ones with KERS that season. Still though, very impressive move by Kova! It somewhat reminded me of Webber vs Alonso at Spa last year, although not nearly at as much speed.

    @Kingshark actually after Spa 2009 Fisichella moved to Ferrari remember? He was Massa’s stand-in driver.

    It was Kovalainen KERS-ing past Fisichella, a very opportunistic move!

    From this weekend, I remember Perez passing Vergne early in the race, at the tunnel chicane. Can’t think of many others, except for those on Schumacher when his car was failing.

    Vettel around the outside of Karthikeyan through Beau Rivage towards the end. There was also a great move from one of the top 6 around the outside of the second Mirabeau in those last few laps! :-P
