It isn't able to shift fast enough to not bump redline. Shift 500 RPM sooner. Cars with auto transmissions often have this issue as the engine is revving faster than the car can shift if you shift manually too close to redline. In sport auto, my bet is the computer is actually engaging a shift a little earlier then you think and by the time the car is actually able to shift gears the tach hits 7000 RPM.

Shift 500 RPM or so sooner.
