Hero 6 Flat profile oversaturated

I had absolutely no problems like this with the Hero 5 flat profile. It was quite desaturated and none of the colors got blown out. However with the hero 6 it looks like the flat profile needs some tweaking or we need the ability to control our contrast and saturation. IM VERY happy with the dynamic range and Im still impressed with the camera overall but take a look at this picture. This type of thing happens with all sorts of situations. A red car or a stop sign or some other things that are bright and colorful. One of the purposes of shooting flat is to avoid completely blowing out the colors and this is non recoverable in post.
