I don't know if there is a bug involved with what just happened but it sure as heck didn't feel fair.
Career Mode, Melbourne, Race, Renault.
Qualified in 9th. 50% length. 75% AI difficulty.
Started out dry (and therefore cars set out in dry setups), about 10 laps in, it started raining. I got the jump on the field by pitting early and switching to Intermediates, after a few laps, I ended up in 2nd place as everyone else got tied up in the pits.
Raikkonen was out in front, I couldn't even see him, not sure of the delta, but it was a lot.
After about 5 laps, a safety car gets deployed. I match the delta times given, all is well, then I get told to get within 10 car lengths of the car in front. Conditions are deteriorating and I'm in a Renault, Raikkonen is so far in front there's no way I can catch him in 30 secs. Anyway, I get given a drive through penalty, then another, then another. Driving for a minute and a half I can't even see Raikonnen & Safety Car. Next thing I know, I've been disqualified.
I wasn't backing up the pack deliberately, I was in a slow Renault in the wet, impossible for me to catch a Ferrari and apparently the worlds fastest safety car.
Is this a bug of Safety Car not adjusting for wet weather + slow cars? Or is this punishment deliberate? It seems incredibly unfair, it was a good race until the safety car...
