Pass of the Year 2015: Australia
- 16th March 2015, 17:20 at 5:20 pm #294577Keith CollantineKeymaster
It’s a new year and time to start a new series of Pass of the Year.
Regular readers will know how the formula works: after every race we have a dedicated thread for you to nominate the best pass or passes. And at the end of the year the nominations are compiled and a list of the top ten created for everyone to vote on.
We’ll get things started here by inviting you to nominate the best overtaking moves from the Australian Grand Prix. As always please try to include as much detail as possible – at minimum you need to point out which driver passed which other driver or drivers so your nomination can be counted.
Add your nominations below, and take a look at some of the past top tens here:16th March 2015, 17:29 at 5:29 pm #294578Craig WoollardParticipant
There was overtaking!? I kid.
Probably Ericsson on Perez. Nice little lunge that.16th March 2015, 17:35 at 5:35 pm #294579toiagoParticipant
I’d very much like to review those past overtakes, but almost every video has been removed or blocked by FOM. Utterly frustrating.16th March 2015, 18:12 at 6:12 pm #294584David Not CoulthardParticipant
Vettel’s overcut on Massa.16th March 2015, 22:12 at 10:12 pm #294620AtticusParticipant
Perez on Button – kidding, I’d go for Raikkonen on Sainz on the outside of T9 on lap… 10-ish.16th March 2015, 22:19 at 10:19 pm #294621AtticusParticipant
I have to say there were rather few actual on-track overtakes during Sunday’s race. Horrible.
As the straights were always this short in Melbourne and so DRS was always going to be less helpful here, I think this primarily has to do with the tyres.
The soft-medium allocation was way too hard for the track allowing for quite easy one-stop strategies which in turn killed strategic varieties. The aim should always be a situation in which two strategies are almost equally good and – as it must be extremely hard to nail – two stops at the very least to allow for more varied tyre sequences. And more varied strategies = larger pace differences = more overtakes.16th March 2015, 23:38 at 11:38 pm #294623StrontiumParticipant
Ericcson on Sainz at the end. He went clean up the inside, a classic move that we don’t see much now, with a few cheeky sparks to top it off.17th March 2015, 10:50 at 10:50 am #294715Little_M_LoParticipant
I quite liked Ericsson’s overtake toward the end of the race on Sainz Jr, pretty quiet elsewhere…17th March 2015, 12:13 at 12:13 pm #294721MayankParticipant
