Video: Lewis Hamilton and Kamui Kobayashi talk overtaking with the fans

Here is the video highlights edit of Lewis Hamilton and Kamui Kobayashi's appearance at the FOTA Fans Forum UK event at McLaren.

Fans wanted to know all about the pair's prowess at overtaking and the two drivers did not disappoint.

"What does it feel like to actually pull off a fantastic overtaking manoeuvre?", Hamilton was asked.

His reply: "It’s exhilarating. It’s probably the most exciting part of the race, when you’re not too fast compared to the guy in front. You’re just creeping up on him and looking to see where he’s weaker so that you can attack next time around.

"There’s a real science to it; I love it. Every person you catch you want to overtake immediately, but you learn how easy or difficult they are to overtake, so you have loads of things to weigh up. It’s massively, massively rewarding when do eventually get past someone. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard me, but I get really pumped up. I’m immediately on the radio and asking who I can attack next, I want to have that feeling again."
