Car downshifting on neutral setting

I was driving Baku in Free Practice Career Mode with a custom setup and got pretty good times.
Then i thought I would go back and try the stock neutral settings.  What I noticed was a pronounced "engine break" when I went in to a curve as the car started to down shift. It almost felt like the car was braking without my help. (I actually got better times with this neutral setting)
It was strange and perhaps it was just a big difference in the two settings.
So my question is, what could cause this effect in the settings? It must be something with the brakes ?

    I actually figured this out. It has to do with the brake assist. If the brake assist is on max, it will feel like the car is braking by itself.

    Late reply I know, but....
    That's because it is braking by itself  lol
    Turn off Braking Assist and you'll find it won't do that.
