    I'm currently experiencing problems with the back of the car in the first corner of China. The car begins oversteering in the last third of the corner when you have to go slower and you are of throttle. I'm of the brakes, it's not while downshifting, the car just rolls.
    Car setup is faster standard (the one with 4/4 wings), career mode and a McLaren.
    I tried off throttle diff and suspension tweaks but I just made in worse :D
    Do you guys have any ideas what I could try?

    To me happened in 3rd gear.
    I entered the corner in 8th, then quickly down to 6, then slowly 5, 4 till the apex on the upper part of the right handed.
    I put 3rd gear just when I touched the apex before bouncing on the left corner.

    If it doesn't work check car height and tyre pressures, maybe the diffuser scrape the tarmac, so higher them to the rear.
    But I wouldn't trust car setups in Codemasters' games: in Barcelona I was faster with 5-3 wings than 9-7.

    These cars have a ton of innate downforce.

    Hm, car height seems to be a good idea. Never thought of that. Will try it when I'm at home.

    I used to get that all in the time in Project Cars. I solved it with bound and rebound. We don't have that here. Try a stiffer rear roll bar or stiffer shocks but not both. 1 to 3 notches should fix it. if not then try the other (shocks or roll bar)
