Fast corner exit but losing 10mph+ on straights, any help?

Jul 5, 2019
I’ve just bought this game and I can easily pass the AI in the corners and exiting the corners far quicker than them but when behind someone even in their slipstream they pull away and I lose at least a second on every decent length straight. Red bull rookies and Moto3 is particularly bad for this and it makes it impossible to run at the front even with the AI turned down quite low.

CONTINUED: gone from lapping losail at 2:14 last night to 2:22 today with the exact same bike set up etc, back to losing 10mph on straights
