"just exactly what is the remote safety driver supposed to do?"

For that matter, as most gamers already know, watching on a screen, reading the "instruments", is no substitute for the "feel" of actually being there. Taking a corner and the road surface is a bit frosty or just wet and greasy, and the "safety" driver has no awareness that the back end is starting to slide until too late. S/he can only rely on the so-called AI to cope in that situation.
