Super aggressive AI inside moves are atrocious.

Not the moves themselves per say but the game's built in "AI mistake" system which causes them to immediately lock up in the next corner and then obliterate you because they lock up so defensively that they're pretty much guaranteed to swipe you. (Rather than acknowledging their mistake by backing off and conceding the overtake.) Most of the issue I take with this is that the AI should be penalized when they do this because they technically cause a collision by losing control of their car but they're generally not.

    The lock ups are great, makes it more realistic, you are able to pressure them, though it does happen too much, maybe something to do with the many oddities in 1.10.

    The fact of it is the only way you can actually take advantage of it is to be on the inside. If you're on the outside the lockup basically sends them into you. (Making outside moves risky in this way is kind of crummy because of the way the AI covers the inside when they are defending.)

    Can you video it please? On PS4, my career they lock up but they don't act erratically with it.

    Did a highlight of it. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/320578386

    Not the first time something like that has happened and probably not the last. Basically the only thing you can do is make sure you're the one on the inside. I'm annoyed that if you get stuck on the outside basically the only way to be safe is to actually concede the position... even though in that situation the AI should really be the one conceding rather than 'panic defending.'

    I guess if there's one upside it's that there's no longer really any career score that you lose points for when you flashback...

    I'm happy they removed the Career Mode leaderboards cause honestly who gives a **** for that and it's waste of space, Season Results are miles better replacement for it which should've been in 16 and 17 to begin with.

    This happens in real life too. Immediately I can think of Bottas and Ricciardo in Hungary this year.

    Illegal manoeuvre. Cede that position or we'll receive a penalty.

    Should have been in way before that. It's the little things that make a huge difference!
