Bottas on Massa around the outside of T5. Has to be the best of the race. Phenomenal move… and in the same car AND same tyres? That is something that doesn’t happen often at all.29th March 2015, 10:27 at 10:27 am #295444dragollParticipant
Bottas on Massa is my vote as well. Same tyres, same cars, no DRS, it was around the outside, it was truly an epic move between teammates. Good to see Bottas get the result after a tough road back from his back injury.29th March 2015, 10:28 at 10:28 am #295445AdityaParticipant
Bottas on Massa at the end, sweeping him from the outside!29th March 2015, 10:35 at 10:35 am #295447Noah WheelerParticipant
I think for skill it has to be Bottas on Massa at the end.
For significance, it had to be Vettel’s pass on Rosberg at the beginning. The one that made everyone sit back and say “did somebody just pass Mercedes?”29th March 2015, 10:41 at 10:41 am #295448PorscheF1Participant
Although I don’t like him at all, Ericsson on Verstappen on L1 at T4. GP2 style all the way.29th March 2015, 10:56 at 10:56 am #295449Giggsy11Participant
Kimi passing two on the first lap into turn 4. I think he passed a Sauber (Nasr?) and a Toro Rosso (Verstappen?)29th March 2015, 11:26 at 11:26 am #295452hunocsiParticipant
There were loads to choose from, I’m gonna say Verstappen’s late dive into T4 against Sainz close to the end of the race.29th March 2015, 15:56 at 3:56 pm #295552YoshisuneParticipant
Verstappen on Ricciardo (I think). Very good job to go alongside in turn 1, then he had the inside for turn 2 and he squeezed Ricciardo at the exit of the corner, leaving him just enough space. Very cool move and I was impressed to see the confidence and the control that he has with his car.29th March 2015, 17:12 at 5:12 pm #295558jaapgrollemanParticipant
Verstappen on Ricciardo. Just so much confidence in the car and himself to challenge the leader of the two teams. Max has arrived in F1.29th March 2015, 18:08 at 6:08 pm #295561Omar RParticipant
Verstappen on Ricciardo, both for the skill (and guts) showed by the “kid” and because it is a Red Bull and I think that on a management level, Horner must feel “insulted” by that move (and that makes the pass even more special, considering how awful Horner has been behaving lately).29th March 2015, 22:12 at 10:12 pm #295562Little_M_LoParticipant
Verstappen on Ricciardo
A future star vs Danny Ric, who was seen as the best driver in the field last season.30th March 2015, 7:30 at 7:30 am #295571MatthijsParticipant
Also Verstappen on Ricciardo.
It was not a legendary move but he showed maturity, spacial awareness (from both drivers) and car control. Also extra spicy because it was on a Red Bull.
Honourable mention for Bottas for his move on Massa.30th March 2015, 11:10 at 11:10 am #295575HKParticipant
Raikkonen on Bottas and Nasr wins it for me.30th March 2015, 11:23 at 11:23 am #295576ArkiParticipant
Bottas on Massa!
