2011 Japanese Grand Prix Overtake of the Weekend

Well what an entertaining race to crawl out of bed early on a Sunday morning for. I think we were spoiled with action up and down the field once more and, once again we narrowly missed out on a top three change around in the dying moments of the GP.

I think we may see some of the less-usual suspects get in the poll this week, with Maldonado and Perez nearly hitting double figures and several other midfield drivers putting in some great performances.

Please copy/paste from Galahads summary below to make it easier for me... Nominate as many or as few passes as you like and, it’s always good to give us a line on why you enjoyed it and are nominating it.

Keke will have his work cut out this week I’m sure, with over 70 on track passes, so we'll pop the video summary in when he has a chance to finish. In the meantime, go check out BBC F1 or F1.com for race highlights.

Thanks

Kobi on Alguersauri for me - same place and same way as last year only done better. buck your ideas up Jamie!

oh and Bruno Senna made the most passes during the race - did anyone see any of them on the live footage because I didn't!

I'll have to watch Keke's wonderful ovetaking analysis videos, but for the moment the one that is stuck in my memory is Sutil's amazing move on Kobayashi. Brave, almost to the point of stupidity considering who he was passing, where he was passing him, and the country this happened in! LOL

Lap 40 - 17 Pérez passed 12 Maldonado for 10th
Lovely bit of "switchback" there

Lap 45 - 14 Sutil passed 16 Kobayashi for 9th
Kobayashi defended but not much, even so, Sutil never backed out

Lap 46 - 8 Rosberg passed 15 di Resta for 12th

Oppurtunism right up at Dunlop where the track is narrow and tight
