downshifting mid-corner is not ideal but occasionally it does happen (especially when you are still learning). without heel-toe, the jump in rpm can be enough to lock up the front wheels, or at least cause a decent jolt, inducing understeer and cause you to spear off the track. an extreme example but it can happen.
Have you ever been to a track? Funny stuff.
