Overtaking is the best part of F1. When you see a great overtaking maneuver while watching a grand prix live, it stays with you. When there's not enough overtaking, fans and pundits call for rule changes. Overtaking wins races and shames champions. It's the sweetest plum, the cherry atop the race sunday.

Some passing maneuvers are so great that they stay inscribed in the annals of F1 history and in the minds of F1 fans even decades later. This video compiles the best of them, the top overtaking moves in the history of televised motorsports, set to a rather fittingly dramatic and aptly penned musical score.

Enjoy these passing moments.
