    Yes, very frustrating when this happens. Was in a race in career mode and my engineer told me blue flags will be shown to lap traffic so I should be fine. Was in a heated 3-way battle for first place and some hooligan lapped traffic spun me around. Not that 3rd was a bad spot but after racing hard with only fractions to spare this is very hard to swallow. Racing incidents are fine but the experience is frustrating when lapped traffic don't slow down or a slow car leaves the pits to inhibit your flying qualifying lap. Hope this can be addressed so that AI is under the same rules as the player.

    blue flag doesnt mean get over as quick as possible, it means hold your line and drive predicatively to allow the lap car to pass as safely as possible. Just because you are a lap down doesnt mean you cant run your race.

    they don't hold their line though, they start running defensively lines and actively try to prevent you from overtaking

    I sometimes get a blue flag when I overtake an AI car and the AI car tries to re-ovetake me. So, why should I let the AI overtake me (blue flag) when I just overtook the AI?
    Also, when there is an AI behind me and it doesn't get closer, I still get a blue flag, even when I'm in second or third position trying to win the race.

    Somthing's not right with the blue flag thing.

    I think, SMS made pCars too complicated. They should have made pCars simple and straight forwars, like AC.
