    Defense help please

    So I was racing on monza last night and was in I guess kind of a dirty race constantly getting bumped from behind in turn 1 but my real issue was at the end of the race. Started in P8 out of 9 got all the way up to P4 battling for P3 at the end of the race. Final turn comes up I'm right on this McLarens tail we get around the last turn and I go to pass him on the inside when he decides to bump into me causing me to spin out sadly. I'm not going to say I would've got P3 but it would've been very close any advice on how to deal with this kinda stuff? I am aware there will be contact during a race but on a straight away like this I was a bit upset.

    Multiplayer or offline? If multiplayer, make a mental note of the guy's name and never race him again. There's nothing much you can do about people who can't play fair. If offline, make sure to keep enough distance to the other car.

    Actually, I think it depends on how you approached. If you pressed for the inside line late, after he had already committed then it could have actually been your fault. If you're going to take the inside, cutting in tight from the normal line, then you need to be there as early as possible, so the other driver can see you and know your intent. Otherwise, he's setting up his turn, looking for his braking point and the apex. He slows, turns in, and then BAM, there you are. The bump may have just been him on turn in, and not intentional. If you were in his sights and had claimed the line, then you were right, etiquette wise, but the only thing you can do to combat that behavior is be ready for it.

    Not much you can do, lots of sore losers online. I don't know how many times I've been fighting for the lead and get run off the track.

    The best is when they wait for you on a straightaway (random guys just trying to wreck anybody) and as you get close, they think that you don't know what they are trying to do. I will slow down a bit, make them think I'm passing on inside or outside, and quickly switch to the opposite side and they will almost always put themselves in the wall. It's very satisfying to watch!!!

    It was towards the end of that long last turn he knew I was there we where almost at where you enter the pits and the racing line is on the outside at that point.there was no need for him to go inside anymore I wish I had footage to show.

    Oh, I believe you. I was really just asking if that were possible. Some people complain about things like that, but it's really their fault. Doesn't sound like that was the case here.
