Autosteer -- how far will it go when locked on to the car in front?

Under 18 MPH, auto-steer uses the car in front of you as primary data (it's in blue vs. the lines being in blue). I was curious to see just how much it would really follow -- so in a situation without lanes and the car in front of me turning left, I let auto-steer do it's thing. It did perfectly (and of course started complaining around the speed when auto-steer needs lane information so it can lock onto lanes instead of the car in front).

Autosteer turned off at 15mph after just starting the turn. Thus "it did perfectly" seems overenthusiastic.
