Without a doubt, Vettel on Rosberg.20th March 2012, 17:52 at 5:52 pm #196396EduardoParticipant
If I’m not wrong, Kobayashi was already overtaking some guys before DRS being enabled… we have to take this into consideration …20th March 2012, 18:03 at 6:03 pm #196397David-AParticipant
I would say it is Vettel on Rosberg, though there were some other good ones from Kobayashi and Raikkonen.20th March 2012, 21:48 at 9:48 pm #196398EnigmaParticipant
I vote for Vettel’s pass as well. It was a clever one – he used most of his KERS out of turn 8, far from ideal for laptime but obviously allowed him to pass Rosberg. I suppose he learnt it from Hamilton in Shanghai last year!21st March 2012, 9:10 at 9:10 am #196399damonsmedleyParticipant
Vettel on Rosberg and Kobayashi on Raikkonen are about as good as each other. I can’t recall ever seeing a driver pass around the outside at either corner!
@katederby I’m not sure Webber’s ‘pass’ (no idea what to call it! :P) on Rosberg was that good. He wasn’t far enough alongside to make a move stick and probably should have backed out before the turn-in. He’s lucky, because I wouldn’t have blamed Rosberg if he turned in and they had collided. Nico was very courteous, and paid the price by running wide.21st March 2012, 11:59 at 11:59 am #196400andae23Participant
Vettel on Rosberg for me: Kobayashi on Raikkonen was more of an accidental pass. I believe Kobi just outbraked himself and accidentally passed Raikkonen before even realising it!21st March 2012, 14:16 at 2:16 pm #196401FabianaParticipant
Definitely Vettel on Rosberg. That move was amazing and proved that he CAN drive.21st March 2012, 14:33 at 2:33 pm #196402Xenon2Participant
Vettel v Rosberg and Raïkkönen v Kobayashi stood out.24th March 2012, 17:16 at 5:16 pm #196403damonsmedleyParticipant
Look at what I’ve found! It seems I was wrong — Vettel wasn’t the first to pass around the outside of turn 9.25th March 2012, 4:58 at 4:58 am #196404Stephen JonesParticipant
