Awesome, reminds me of Montoya pulling a similar move in F3000. But that move back then was not under yellow flags..

It was a bit bone-headed, but looked cool. I remember making a similar pass in Forza where the guy in front of me braked way earlier than I expected at the end of the back straight at Road Atlanta, forcing me to dive off track on the right, but I managed to drift it perfectly just like in the video and I came back alongside him with the inside line going into the uphill right-hander.

Watching this onboard, I understand better what Schumacher experienced behind Coulthard on this very circuit :lol:

Was going to post it, his complete disregard to what is happening in the track, not considering at any moment he could be doing something wrong, cracks me up :lol:

Hahahaha, he was last anyway, worst that could happen is that he got a drive throught and still gained 7-8 positions :rotfl:

lol i do that in video games on a rolling start if I'm right at the back.

But I read that this is illegal in real life to try to time a huge speed-differential blast-multi-pass from the back? So where do they draw the line on allowed or not allowed? Seems a bit arbitrary.

" ... to get away with just a broken right rear. "

Safety car, yellow flags, crashes into the accident, and damages his car.

Was Pastor Maldonado his driving instructor?

There are many great things about this video but I think the commentary's the best.

"I would not be surprised if he gets a penalty!"

Thats amazing, what the hell was Jean thinking???

I liked the comment - the lights do not decide when Jean Alesi goes racing. Jean Alesi decides when Jean alesi goes racing.

Obviously, the pit wall had just informed Jean some rich guy had actually bought a T125.

Funny that if those conditions were in F1 there would've been a red flag.
