At 8000 RPMs in 5th and car shifts into 6th

Hi,
I noticed when I"m about 8000 RPMs in 5th, still below redline, the car will automatically shift to 6th. A little surprised that it would but thought I share this observation.

Good question. It is in sports mode. I'm guessing if I turn of the computer assist this won't happen.

That's what I thought Put it in race mode or CST OFF and it won't go in the next gear anymore

Like Stef said, that is the way F1 works. In Sport for F430s and CSs and Normal for earlier F1 Ferraris, the system upshifts for you when you reach or rapidly approach redline. My 575M works exactly the same way.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Thank you. It is delightful to get answers to esoteric questions so easily. The Internet does have value.
