Not able to catch the safety car

Hi,
I have encountered a very strange bug with the safety car. I wasn't able to catch the safety car before it went in again. This is against the SC regulations. The competitors have to be in formation behind the SC before it goes in again. I think this needs a hotfix.

    Yes, I am. But I think this is the same across all platforms as it is a gameplay bug.

    no wonder, just had it today that the SC only stayed out for 1 lap. That's way too less on a 50% race. Only a few AI cars could catch it...

    I take it this is while on patch 1.9

    Hello CompLex1986, please can you tell me which track you were on and which lap the SC came out on?

    It happened in Australia. I was doing a 25 percent race in career and it happened in the middle of the race. I had just done a pitstop, switching from supersoft to ultrasoft. I think I did that on lap 8. I think I was the last car doing a pitstop just before the SC went out right after I exit the pitlane. So I was already way behind and I was never able to catch up with the pack.

    Oh man this happens so many times, every time it comes out, I thought it was programmed like that on purpose.
    And also it doesn't come out if theres only a few laps left too. even after a massive crash.
