Suzuka overtaking: GP2 and reality

Post by ismael » 18.10.2017, 18:12

Sometimes, one could think that GP2 has small bugs in the AI of the CC's of the track layout and the behavior of other racers, or of what a gamer can achieve, especially about overtaking. We all know that it seems too easy to overtake on the inside line at the race start and Spa-Francorchamps, for example.

But sometimes reality shows us that some apparently odd overtaking spots are actual and real overtaking opportunities. It's just that in GP2 we are experimented drivers and we already aware of them. Magnussen's recent overtake on Massa in Suzuka turn 2 is a good example.

(Suzuka is really a great track).

This was not pictured by Youtube, but in Interlagos Verstappen in fresh tyres caught Perez with a worn set, and got past in Laranja, the tight right-hander just next to Ferradura where Hamilton crashed in qualifying. It's another overtaking spot that we use a lot in GP2 but not so much in reality.
