Top 5 F1 overtakes (2011-2015)

Top 5 F1 overtakes (2011-2015)

Best overtakes of recent times as voted by F1 fans

Having spent many years with its head stuck in the sand, 2015 marks the year Formula One finally embraced social media and the digital age.

Despite Bernie Ecclestone's infamous comments that "he didn't see the point" in social media, F1 has now gone digital in a big way, starting up Twitter and YouTube accounts and posting masses of great content from today and years gone past.

(Note: just as we give them this praise, we find FOM has banned the use of embedded videos on website. Simply click the link and you'll be taken to the video in one second.)

One of its more interesting uploads was the Top 5 overtakes from the last five years (2011-2015) as voted for by F1 fans in a Twitter poll. 

Many big names are represented, including Fernando Alonso, Michael Schumacher, Kimi Raikkonnen and our own Mark Webber, who we're pleased to say takes the number one spot!

In our opinion it's a pretty good list, bar the fact number four and number one are very similar - what would have made your top 5?
