Drafting in corners

One of my posts at "Xbox Live香港(Hong Kong)討論區" dated "04-10-2006, 10.27PM":

But don’t draft in corners, "(…) where the reduced airflow acting on the wings of the second car will dramatically decrease aerodynamic downforce, and hence grip – meaning that the car behind will typically be forced to drop back, or to pick a different cornering line in ‘clean air’."

In other words, you break slightly worse than usual and can
a) crash into the car in front of you
b) kick yourself out of the corner because of too much speed

Some nice lessons can be found at Formula 1.
