Side by side racing has gotten to the point where drivers today will simply drive one another over the lines and curbs because "it's their corner" and other nonsense. It exists in every racing series worldwide with the exception of motorcycle racing.
First of all. What you are describing is an individual issue.
Then you have to look at the circumstances involving the two drivers and why the collision happened etc.
Taking the line is an ok move if the other guy is not side by side with you.
Look at how Webber closed the door on Kimi in China, or what happens when you don´t give in (Grosjean/Maldonado - Australia)
When drivers are racing side by side they will give each other room.
When someone just sticks in their nose that´s usually when --- happens.
Not sure either your assessment of it not existing in Motorcycle racing, you should ask what Stoner and Lorenzo feels about Rossi´s overtaking moves or contacts he´s had with them.
Oh and you should ask the whole field what they thought of Simoncelli, notorious driver when it came to that stuff.
It´s all individual no matter what form of racing it is.
