Default I can't find my S8 !

Sorry I just couldn't help myself hooking you.In fact my question is as follows:
2014 Q5 TDI
I have noticed that when I go to "S"port mode the transmission will never shift to S8.Even when coasting down a long hill at highway speeds.I tried going to manual mode and shifting to S8 with the paddle shifter and it goes to 8 but after about 10 secs.it reverts to S7.I'm not overly concerned but if any of you have noticed the same it will reassure me.
2014 Q5 TDI S-Line
1986 Alfa Romeo GTV6
1992 Ford F150 5.0

That is intentional. It will also keep higher revs on other gears too.

Try using cruise control.

In models with S-tronic gearboxes when it is in the S mode is only available a 6 speed from the existing 7.
When activated cruise control is available 7-speed in the S mode
