There are three diffrent answers, depending on the lap you are on and the lap the person in second place before you overtake him or her is on.

Spoiler for Answer 1: On the same lap


Spoiler for Answer 2: You are on a higher lap than the person in second place


Spoiler for Answer 3: You are behind on laps compared to the person in second place


However, if you pass another person AT THE SAME TIME, and that person is first, AND you are on the same lap as both second AND first, this fourth answer is correct.

Spoiler for Answer 4


And there you have it.

2nd place, though many people confuse the meaning of overtake and say that you're in 1st.

It's not the expression OVERTAKE,it's just how people think about it...everybody I asked this first said 1ST,then thought about it for 5 secs,then said 2ND.
I didn't even ask them in english,so...it's not the expression...

Well, if you overtake second, then you will have gained second place. Like a country, if you overtake country A, doesn't mean you get country B.
