Just a thought but would it be possible or even worthwhile to have a feature whereby other players' "DNA" (driving characteristics; e.g., aggressive, tame, consistentcy or quirks) could be selected as parameters for AI behavior.

This was a feature I came across in Pure Pool...as you played your tendencies, skill (or lack thereof ) were recorded and others could play against your AI clone offline. Just a thought. I welcome insight.

As in the drivatar system from Forza.

Not sure as I have no experience with Forza...is it the same feature?

In a nutshell, yes

Does it work well/add anything to the game? Maybe the capability to incorporate pro driver "dna" or those of friends one races against as a means of practice between league races.

Drivatars genuinely feel individual. They often tend to be assholes though ;)

The theory is people treat AIs like dirt, the AIs learn that.

Forza6 is going to have a revamped system where you can force the drivatards to be professional
