    Absolutely. Overtake on Ricciardo, China 2017; Bottas, Spain 2017; Ocon, Canada 2017; come to mind. Beside, his 2012 championship was decided by his stunning overtakes in Brazil and Abu Dhabi 2012 from last on the grid.

    Did you not see what he did for us at Canada 2017. That passion. That skill. That talent.

    Who then?

    Vettel isn't as good an overtaker as Michael, who was the best overtaker ever. But he is still the best on the grid today. I don't understand why you keep pointing the figure at Seb. He's driven well for us the past 4 years.

    Anyway, hope for a top result for us tomorrow. Forza Ferrari.

    Doesn't really matter who is the best overtaker. The fact is that Seb was never the best overtaker of his generation. There were several pilots better at overtaking than him over the years he's had in F1. Lewis, Button, Alonso, Max(since Canada 2018) come to mind.

    Explain how the people you mentioned are better overtaker than Seb. I have never seen the people you mentioned doing any quality overtakes like Seb.

    I'm so happy for Charles and hope he can hold on for his first (overdue) win! A nice young man with a graet future! I will watch tomorrow's race
    and hope our team catches a break this time! Too bad about Seb's car problem, he has a lot of ground to recover from the start and wish him all
    the luck that he's been missing! Trying to stay POSITIVE!

    Vettel spins when he tries to overtake, he can't possibly be the best lol
    Interviewer: “The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you?”
    Kimi: “It protects my head.”

    Seb has more failed overtakes compared to other drivers, probably due to lack of patience. His 2010 crashes when trying to overtake are notorious. Then in the second half of 2018 things started to fall apart for him again with multiple failed overtakes. It's not about "quality" when making an overtake.

    For example out of 10 overtake attempts, It's useless to have 2 quality overtakes and 8 failed ones compared to 8 decent(but successful) out of 10. The driver with 8 out of 10 will be a better overtaker for me than another one with fewer successful(but more spectacular) overtakes.

    Any words on Hamilton investigation? Why FIA is taking too long to announce the outcome? Had it been another driver, they would have come out shouting penalty in qualifying itself...

    They are probably trying to find a decent excuse not to penalise him.

    I'm surprised they're even investigating. Did the team make an official complaint?

    Once I’m back home will watch Lec lap & ham issue.

    Kimi did really show middle finger to ham??

    Charles takes a magnificent 2nd pole of his career but is he on the right tyres? Hopefully he can break away at the start and go for long enough to make it stick, and poor Seb, another car malfunction that scuppered Charles in Bahrain, will we ever get a clean weekend when we had a real chance to lock out the front row and possibly even get a 1-2. HAM should get a penalty for sure, there will be even bigger questions if he doesn't, but good to see both Alfas in the top 10. Not making any predictions but we live in hope.

    They try to find a legit way to penalize Kimi , you'll see. Hamilton not only is not going to get penalized, but probably get praised for his driving skills and for avoiding a dangerous situation and so on.
