I think this depends very much on how busy it is and who's on the track.
During touristenfahrten there are I think 2 things that play: fast guys that can drive really well and know the track and beginners that dont know the track and will make mistakes.
So you can always think: if the beginner makes a mistake, its his fault.
But you can also think: an experienced driver should be able to spot a beginner and assess the situation accordingly (by maybe not overtaking)

This is a nice example, and when its busy on the ring (this was on a very busy day, I was in a 1 hour traffic jam before I could go on the ring (just after a big accident), you'll see something like this every lap (either you're causing it or it happens just in front of your nose )

The sponsored car probably has an experienced driver, the red car not so much.
Nothing really dangerous is happening here (apart from me getting a load of stonechips... ), but still its the same as you driving on the highway at highway speed and getting forced into the border by someone.
