Rosberg’s overtake on Bottas was great, very ballsy move – a bit un-Rosberg-like.27th September 2015, 10:19 at 10:19 am #306127PorscheF1Participant
Rosberg his move was a desperate outbraking attemt that had a pretty high crash possibility written all over it. Grosjean on Ericcson in Degner 1 for me.27th September 2015, 10:29 at 10:29 am #306129jaapgrollemanParticipant
Nasr and Verstappen, side-by-side on Button. Very reminiscent of Schumacher and Hakkinen on Zonta at Spa.27th September 2015, 16:11 at 4:11 pm #306218StrontiumParticipant
Rossi on Stevens, not sure what lap, it was at 130R. Stevens had spun and was regaining control, how Rossi avoided smashing into him is a complete mystery, so I’d say that’s worthy of a mention.27th September 2015, 16:37 at 4:37 pm #306220glynhParticipant
Rosberg on bottas for me. A nice overtake and impressive that he didn’t wait for the next corner with Drs28th September 2015, 20:11 at 8:11 pm #306275BleuParticipant
I prefer moves which are done in the places where there is not much overtaking, so I choose Grosjean on Ericsson into Degner.28th September 2015, 20:32 at 8:32 pm #306277LawrenceParticipant
If Bernie had let us watch it, I guess Lewis Hamilton’s pass of Nico Whineberg straight from the start would have been easily voted as both the best – and most important – pass of the day.
It had most impact on the likely outcome of World Championship and confirms Rosberg as, at best, Merc’s number two
