This is an excellent video going over the basics of overtaking.

Interesting video.   In online racing I think I'm over cautious overtaking or defending as so concerned about accidentally hitting someone.

I am, too.  I struggle to pass but I think a lot of that comes from Forza's years of teaching me that if you pass someone, there's a good chance they'll try to ruin your race.  If you pass, people don't want to leave you space because crashing is such a big part of the game.  How to fix that is up for debate but ranking systems (not reward systems) are probably where things need to be.

He mentions in the comments of the video in the original post that he'll eventually talk about blue flags, yellow flags, multiclass, and other stuff where passing is necessary.

This is a new one that I haven't watched yet that probably goes into more of that.
