Followers of |StartingGrid| know that I’m a huge Formula 1 fan. This isn’t something that you see everyday, where a Caterham overtakes a Ferrari in a Grand Prix.
Watch how Vitaly Petrov is able to keep pace with Felipe Massa, and make a pass in the DRS zone for 15th place during the 2012 European GP. (Massa’s teammate Alonso is leading the race at this point.)
Now really what makes this interesting, is it shows how aerodynamically and tire dependent Formula 1 cars are in the current era, because the Caterham is not the same class of aerodynamic design as the Ferrari.
Now maybe Massa’s Ferrari was damaged, but it’s still pretty interesting to watch.
(I miss Petrov… 😦 )
