Leave a comment

Daniel Ricciardo has won a fan vote for the overtake of the year in Formula 1 for his triple-pass en route to victory in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in June.

In a vote held on the official F1 website earlier this week, fans were asked to pick their favorite overtakes of the year, with a top 10 being announced on Saturday.

Ricciardo featured three times in the top 10, with the winning pass coming during the dramatic race in Baku.

Heading down the main straight, Ricciardo managed to get a tow and pass Nico Hulkenberg, Felipe Massa and Lance Stroll all into Turn 1, rising from P6 to P3 in the process.

The move proved crucial in Ricciardo’s march to victory as leaders Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel both hit trouble later in the race, allowing the Red Bull driver to capitalize and take a famous win.

You can watch the top 10 in full on the official F1 website.
