Daniel Ricciardo's eye-of-the-needle overtake on Valtteri Bottas at the Chinese Grand Prix has been shortlisted for the FIA's 'Action of the Year' award. Ricciardo's pass on the Mercedes was the highlight of his victory in Shanghai as Red Bull's superior strategy helped him to a thrilling win.
Red Bull's decision to double stack Max Verstappen and Ricciardo in the pits under safety car conditions paid off for the latter, allowing him to display his full array of overtaking skills.
Ten more moments have been shortlisted for the award, including Mick Schumacher's maiden European Formula 3 at Spa Francorchamps and a memorable battle between teammates Jean-Eric Vergne and Andre Lotterer in Formula E's Santiago de Chile e-Prix.
