Pass Master: Max Verstappen’s most impressive overtaking moves
1 Vs Marcus Ericsson – Chinese Grand Prix 2015
In just his third GP, Verstappen made his name as a no-holds-barred racer, closing hard on the Swede before launching a do-or-die move under braking into the chicane. They banged wheels, but Verstappen emerged ahead.
2 Vs Felipe Nasr – Belgian Grand Prix 2015
At Spa, Verstappen chased down Sauber’s Felipe Nasr and made a move around the outside at the high-speed Blanchimont corner. He clattered over the kerbs, ran alongside Nasr all the way up to the Bus Stop chicane and then blasted past down the inside.
3 Vs Nico Rosberg – Brazilian Grand Prix 2016
In torrential rain, Verstappen found grip where no other driver could. As Rosberg hugged the inside line through Turn 3, Verstappen dived out of the spray and powered around the outside of the German. Jaw-dropping.
4 Vs Sergio Perez – Brazilian Grand Prix 2016
To claim a podium place he needed to pass Perez. He tried to overtake the Mexican around the outside of Turn 10 and despite skidding across the kerbs, held on. He then ran side-by-side with Perez to eventually pass the Force India man through Turn 12.
