In some respects it's a bit like the old pedestrian on the crossing, Yes the cars have to give way to him BUT stepping out in front of a driver who isn't going to (or can't) stop means you're going to lose out anyway.

I think on many weekend we see a driver put their car where they probably shouldn't and it's only because the other driver who may be entitled to hold his line yields is what prevents the accident from happening.

It's a judement call from the lead driver really, do I hold my line and have the crash so the other guy crashes out as well and goes to the stewards and learns not to do that again, or do I yeld when technically I don't have to, continue the race and every other driver now knows I can be bluffed out of a corner?
