Inside Line

The inside line is the racing line taken by one of two drivers competing for a corner and refers to the line between the apex and the other driver

When drivers compete for a corner, the driver in front (sometimes by millimetres) has the right to the corner, and the challenging driver must give way. The defending driver can only move once to block going into the corner and not at all under braking. 

This is where the challenging driver may see an opportunity and going in deep to take the inside line can ab a good option.
