For those who haven’t participated before the idea is simple: Nominate the best pass or passes from each race and the ten which get the most nominations will go into a poll for Pass of the Year at the end of the season.
What were the best passes of the Australian Grand Prix? Your nominations below, please…
I originally thought that Magnussen around the outside of Hamilton was an inspired move just before Turn 11, though that was before it became apparent that Hamilton was nursing a sick engine.
I think ‘Overtaker of the Race’ has to go to Bottas who made his way through the field twice from 15th on the grid and then close to the back following his clip with the wall. However no moves stuck out to me – certainly Raikkonen and Vergne fell out of his way. The move on Hulkenberg was fairly straightforward with DRS.
Does the start count as an overtake? In which case Rosberg shooting off the line was quite impressive! ;-)
@andae23 @ardenflo Guys please try to be specific in your nominations if you can. If you can’t recall who Bottas passed at turn three today I’m probably going to have even less idea when I come to collate your nominations in eight months’ time!
@kingshark – When did that happen? Bottas overtook Raikkonen twice. The second time was when Kimi made the mistake and the first was when he went up the inside of Raikkonen at turn 3 and was practically already ahead by turn 4.
