This month's Motor Sport Magazine has an article by Pat Symonds on overtaking. It's not online (yet), although they do reference it on the magazine page. There are some interesting nuggets in the article (apparently), including mention of an FIA-commissioned overtaking study carried out by the late journalist Jabby Crombac. Crombac's analysis covered the period from 1955 to 2000, using lap charts only, and showed a peak in 1963, followed by a rapid decline from then until 1975 and a general further decline to 2000. As far as we know, this has never been published. Symonds then talks about the weaknesses of such an approach and goes on to say: I don't want to copy and paste the whole article as that would be plagiarism but I think we can get away with the above paragraph considering it relates to this very site The specific mention of what is and isn't a wet race has always been a problem. I actually posted a thread a while ago asking for input on several races as I was unsure whether to class them as wet or not. KekeTheKing was good enough to post up some old video footage which helped to settle a few of the trickier ones. For those who have read it, was there anything different which hasn't already been discussed? I plan to pick up a copy of the magazine tomorrow so will offer my thoughts in more detail then. In the meantime I'd like to take this opportunity to offer my congratulations to Galahad who is responsible for compiling all the data and of course KekeTheKing who provides valuable input. This completes the full set I think: radio, TV, internet and now print. P.S. Any guesses as to which member is Pat?
