Your chance to nominate your favourite pass/passes of the weekend.

Check out the BBC highlights, Galahads summary and KekeTheKing's overtake highlight video.

Personally, from a :chuffed:point of view, the lap 33 Hamilton on Alonso for 1st was great entertainment, but thats as a McLaren fan, and maybe not the most skilful of the weekend, if very daring.

Two very daring and audacious overtakes for the lead of the race by the eventual winner. I can't choose between the two of them. If I have to, then it must be the pass on Alonso as it ultimately sealed the victory for him. Without that move, he could easily have ended up following Nando across the line for the 2nd spot on the podium.

[Edit]

Lap 13 - 3 Hamilton passed 2 Webber for 1st
Daring pass for the lead showing that Hamilton doesn't take any crap and is one of the most tenacious drivers in F1.

Lap 33 - 3 Hamilton passed 5 Alonso for 1st
Daring pass for the lead showing that Hamilton isn't afraid of anyone and knows you have to stick your neck out sometimes if you want to win races.

I actually preferred Hamilton's on Webber, the one on Alonso was very satisfying but I love the immediate come backs drivers pull and actually that one was great - he doesn't give up and it could have resulted in a usual disaster. Well done both men for some great racing I feel.

Lap 20 - 6 Massa passed 16 Kobayashi for 7th
This one was quite good, you thought both would collide, both braked late, and yet both made the corner, reminiscent of Alonso on Massa 2007.

The Hamilton on Alonso move I find over-rated, Alonso was on cold tyres and the Ferrari is not very good at getting heat in, and he dropped off Hamilton for a fair few laps, just because I said it was overated doesn't mean that I didn't think it was "great"

I would have nominated Alonso overtaking Vettel, but then Vettel didn't seem like he was defending much and just let him by.

I agree with Hamberg. Unusual to see the two of them staying on the same piece of track, but great opportunism!
 
When you look at how strong and relentless Alonso is in relation to Webber historically...and when you look at the strength of the Ferraris in relation to the Red Bulls at Nurburgring, then - for me - there can be no question what an absolutely historic over-take Hamilton's was on Alonso.

I mean the Ferraris were superior to Red Bulls at Nurburgring...and Alonso's a superior animal to Webber. No question. That was a mighty combination (an on-form Alonso / superior Ferrari) for Hamilton to dispatch in Germany.

And...It was on the outside...And... it was for the Grand Prix victory!

It was like Hakkinen on Schumacher at Spa in 2000.

Historic!

Historic?

Alonso came out of the pits with cold tyres giving Hamilton a simple overtake. That hardly compares with Hakkinen going one side of the Minardi and Schumacher the other side. All three drivers had to have nerves of steel.

And that is what I meant on how overated people make it

I agree the Hamilton overtake on Alonso is over-rated but it was still impressive as was crucial for the win and even on cold tyres Alonso could have been more agressive.
 
Lewis' overtake of Webber was IMO better than that of Alonso

Webber resisted and got beaten
Alonso didn't (couldn't) resist and got beaten

Alonso doesn't understand Lewis' aggression or one track mind, Lewis wants to overtake, Alonso would prefer just to end up ahead, he couldn't expect the verve or nerve

Simple? You mean like when Webber tried the same thing on Hamilton a lap earlier?....

Watch that second video again and you will be able to see that Alonso was tiptoeing round turn one and not much better in turns two and three. It is well known that this season the Ferrari has taken a long time to warm up the harder tyre compounds, although it is improving. However this effect is exaggerated when the air and track temperatures are low.

I was wearing a vest, a long-sleeved shirt, a thick jumper, a pair of jeans and thick, wind-proof jacket and trousers and never felt warm during the race. Ironically the sun came out briefly just after the race finished and it felt quite pleasant.

Hamilton on Alonso is definitely overrated, it was nice to see but when you think about it it's really not that special (see Bill Boddy's and Slyboogy's posts).

Hamilton on Webber was a very good one, I didn't think Hamilton would take the inside line, he was so close to the wall! That was very brave.

Got to be Lewis re-overtake on Webber for me. Pure genius. Reminded me of Spa 2008 on Kimi actually.

Would like to give Alonso's move on Vettel a mention though as although Vettel didn't put up much of a fight Alonso came from absolutely miles back and real put his family jewels on the line for it.

I'd have to go back and look but the way Petrov was driving I think any overtake on him would have had to be well executed. I shall go back and have a little look.
