How to use rear in a sentence?

  1. Bretagne Seche:

    I saw Eduardo in the rear mirror and I stopped, instead of walking towards me he climbed in the AG2r car. They did 100 metres so that's the rules, he's out of the race.

  2. Max Verstappen:

    Unfortunately, I didn't get a good lap because the tires were not ready. During the second push-lap, I made a mistake out of turn four, where I went a bit too wide and lost the rear, losing quite a lot of time, it's a shame but I can't change any of this now. I look forward to tomorrow, my first ever Formula one race. The car is working well and hopefully we will be able to score some points as we have a good race pace.

  3. Lou Williams:

    We just got our (rear) kicked, thats it.

  4. Thomas Bullock:

    During the first couple of days of the war, Russian forces appear to have prioritized rushing forward to secure objectives quickly. This means they weren't advancing as a coherent front line, securing territory as they go. This effectively allowed Ukrainian forces to slip behind Russia's advanced mechanized units and attack logistics columns traveling on unsecured roads in the rear.

  5. Kristina Hooper:

    The jobs report is looking in the rear-view mirror while the protectionist actions last week will impact the future, investors may be caught off guard if there is a negative impact to economic growth this year from protectionism.
