If you thought there was more passing in F1 this season, you’re right. And it’s not all due to KERS, DRS and backmarkers.

Sources within the Mercedes team suggest that official statistics show 623 instances of overtaking so far this season, more than the 547 from 19 races in 2010 and 244 from 17 races in 2009. “Of the 623 overtakings, 175 have been at the expense of three stables at the back of the grid and 43 between teammates. Some 180 were made using the DRS (29 percent) and 225 free,” said Mercedes.
