German term or phrase: mit einem Bremsmanöver einen Ausbremsversuch starten
Talking about the Melbourne Grand Prix circuit:
“Die beste Überholmöglichkeit bietet sich am Ende der Start- und Zielgeraden. Dort kann man mit einem mutigen Bremsmanöver am ehesten einen Ausbremsversuch starten.”

I am somewhat puzzled by the idea of a ‘braking manoeuvre/maneuver’ as a technique for overtaking another vehicle. ‘Ausbremsversuch’ is also a rather strange concept unless the idea is to bring both vehicles to a halt. Perhaps I am missing some subtle aspect of the noun ‘Bremse’ or the verb ‘bremsen’?

Explanation:
Richard B.'s already explained the principle - and if he can be bothered to post "outbrake" I'd certainly give it an Agree.
The above are alternatives - which should also suffice given the corner-and-heavy-braking context.

Schumacher gave chase until he was able to cut in and pass his title rival at the Adelaide hairpin under heavy braking.

So I positioned the car as close as possible, got in his slipstream and was able to outbrake him.
