Most of my spins and position losses are on corner entry... as such...Clean racing sometimes entails really close trailing and an overtake when exiting a corner with greater speed than a lead driver who maybe had their rear end kick out on exit. Since a car is on the edge of balance exiting a corner, small contacts may not be avoidable as the steering and throttle inputs have very little margin for error and the slipstream effect is so strong even at lower speeds. So these little bumps should be acceptable as long as they dont significantly deviate the lead driver from their line even if they get overtaken.
i dont know about you guys but most of my spins and position losses occur at corner exits when mashing the throttle and i lose control trying to countersteer out of the spin taking any close racers with me. It shouldnt penalize them for small contact and passinng me.
Also, many times minor contact occurs during fair overtaking attempts in tight places (nurb im looking at you). It is these penalties that we want to mitigate
A very significant amount of my overtakes are due to mid-corner speed and specifically exit, and, I'm always certain to time it in such a way that i am not close enough to touch the leading car... I'm anticipating that wiggle and need to be just far enough back to not get caught up in it... I don't believe that if you are looking to get a run on someone you need to have your splitter straight up their diffuser... the whole idea of getting that run means there needs be a little distance to get into the throttle earlier... so, we will have to agree to disagree...
