F1 2018 AI drivers ignore safety car

Noticed this one last night while racing a safety car was deployed all cars started to queue behind the SC. However I was in the mid field and the drivers behind where constantly over taking me! 

I used flashbacks to stop this as when I took back positions I got penalised!

It it got to the point that I was being spun off the road so often the replay didn’t go back far enough to get out of the situation and this loosing some much needed point :(

    Of course the game would punish you for that for 'illegal' overtakes, but not punish the AI, that's irritating. What platform are you playing on and is this career mode and what track was this on?

    I’m playing on PC, in career mode, the track was Silverstone. 

    And mid yes it was rather irritating to say the least :)

    Happened to me to (PS4), I was over-taken by Perez but when I took the place back like I should have I was told to give it back to him for an illegal over take.  On giving him the place back 2 other drivers decide to barge and I ended up loosing 3 places.

    In Bahrain, separate issue... no wait, sort of, the SC deployed on Lap 4 in a 50% race in career mode, I'm on PS4, Jeff was like "Check your MFD for a new strategy option", being an idiot I took the option up and it royally screwed my race up, I was in 7th at the end of lap 3, Magnussen locked up in turn 10 and went off the track, SC immediately deployed. I pitted on that lap as suggested by Jeff, thought it looked like I could jump the pack and thought "oh Jeff, I lo- wait why can't I go? Jeff, what have you done? I'm plum last grrr and I have to make another stop too!"
    In the end finished 13th and I started in the top ten in my Sauber 1st season, really annoying. Then I followed this up with a string of lower points finishes and 6th in Baku and Spain so Jeff's been forgiven, just about.

    Did you have a damage before SC? In last year's game, AI was ignoring SC rule and was passing you under SC if you have a damage with your car. Maybe same issue?

    Happened to me last night. Im on PS4pro with the 1.05 racing Monaco, get the 'safety car ending do not overtake' message and all of a sudden Gasly comes bombing down the inside at Rascasse. I had no prior damage or anything. Had to use a flashback.

    I really don't understand how pitting works when the safety cars out? Plus the blue flag situation.
    Anyone have info or a link to info for this?

    No damage that I recall. It can’t be that hard to code if the safety car is out the. Lock on to the car I front and follow :)
