F1 announces new overtake award to 'celebrate driver bravery'

F1 has announced a new overtake award to reward the individual driver who makes the most overtakes throughout a season.

F1 claims the first-of-its-kind honour "is designed to celebrate the bravery exhibited by drivers who make bold moves in pursuit of success".

Although 11 rounds of this season's campaign have already been completed, the driver with the most overtakes from the entirety of this season will be crowned at the end of the year and will be presented with a trophy.

At present, Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel leads the way.

Ben Pincus, F1's director of commercial partnerships, said: “The award gives us the chance to celebrate drivers’ instincts to make bold and strategic moves."

New broadcast graphics will be introduced live during each race to signal overtaking possibilities and potential moves.

It will help fans keep track of drivers’ progress in the hunt for the award, which will chart the amount of overtakes made throughout the campaign.

The award is being sponsored by crypto.com, a cryptocurrency platform that recently became a global partner of F1 and title partner of this season's sprint events.
