If you select Sport mode and use the paddles on the wheel it will stay in the manual mode whiilst you use the paddles, however it will revert back to auto if the paddles are not used when a change is due (5 to 10 secs or rev limit). If you want full manual, you have to select Sport or Sport+ and move the shift lever over to the manual side. This gives it the command to hold in the gear selected (unless you go too high in rpm in which case it changes up to prevent engine damage or if you stop, then goes back to M1)

It will not downshift if the rev limit is exceeded
