That's one way to make your rookie debut in a Mercedes!
Super-sub George Russell was called in to replace Lewis Hamilton for the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix following his positive Covid19 diagnosis. Russell had an incredible start and was in the lead, but after a disastrous pit-stop he was forced to clamber up the grid again, leading to this sensational overtake move on team mate Valtteri Bottas.

    Get him to replace Hamilton NOW.
    I have been a Lewis fan for years, but he did not even congratulate George on his drive. That is cheap and shows very little class. We expect so much more for the world champion. Unless he is terrified George is gonna beat him!

    Considering the pit f*****, and the very worn and harder tiers Bottas was on, this looks cool, but it does not show any fair fight, and it's a shame how it's misused.

    Fresh mediums vs very used hards and it is called epic? Pace difference was huge from the car itself.
    I do not deny George is fast but why hype something that is not epic? For example his quali laps are more epic than this overtake.

    It's disgraceful that Bottas is in that seat for 2021, everyone know's he is mediocre with poor racecraft. but I guess don't want anyone challenging golden boy do they? sadly it makes the races boring and predictable.

    The move that ended all doubts that IT IS obviously THE CAR and nothing to do with Hamilton being the "best driver ever" if a rookie who barely fit it in the car can do that to Bottas it really says it all.

    We all know Russell with proven talent in the Merc last year deserves a permanent seat but there are only two seats and due to commitments to other drivers means we have to watch Russell just sit out for another year again in the back field where he doesn't belong. 2022 I hope he gets the call up or Merc releases him to go else where

    I don't understand what is so special about this overtake. It's a simple, make your opponent go wide, get a better exit to get alongside the other driver and down the inside of the next corner.

    But Bottas was fitted with old tires back while Russell with new tires during the pit error. New tires overtake old tires is nothing special.

    Honestly, it would have been upsetting if a car that broke away most of the race on more new and softer tyres could not get around the driver on older and harder tyres. "Epic Overtake" is a reach.
