F1 Fanatic - kimrogue
Raikkonen’s move on Schumacher – A brilliant display of skill, guts, experience and respect for the adversary. I give equal credit to both since both were going wheel to wheel, dancing on the edge grip with complete trust in each other to play it fair.
It was by far the best in a race which was filled with breathtaking overtakes in treacherous conditions.
Agreed, there were a fair share of silly moves too from the best in the business. But altogether, the variable conditions coupled with the emotional significance of the race for a few, made them go for broke on more than one occasion. Makes one realize how brilliant a race could be if everyone thought that this was their final race (of the season) and raced out of their skins.
Sorry to have veered away from the subject. Massa’s move on Di Resta comes a close second for me. But the old guards take the top spot for me. Extra points for Kimi, since Michael had passed him on the same spot in his previous farewell race (2006) as pointed out by @sumedhvidwans
