The problem with that video is that it didn't show the curve and apex. I gave him the apex and about two and a half car widths coming on to the straight. My line did not change as I headed down to the kink. As everyone knows, the line does not stay over on the left, but aims slightly right toward the kink. He drove straight toward me, with plenty of room on the right. At the last instant, he turned the wheel left and hit the inside of my right front wheel. That is why his car kicked back to the right.

I'll try to post my video which clearly shows that I gave him plenty of room on the apex of the keyhole and held my line directly at the aim point down the track. With the exception of giving away the apex, this is pretty much the same line I had driven every lap. The responsibility for the pass is on the car doing the passing.
