1.9 AI strategy changes under SC/VSC
In latest 1.9 there were several updates to AI behaviour. One of them is about pitting while SC/VSC in out on track. After my first career race with 1.9 version, AI seems to pit very likely choosing worse strategy. On this race there were both SC and VSC, under SC 3/4 of field pitted on lap 4 changing their strategy to 3 stops when 2 stops strategy was possible to make to end of race. After many laps, under VSC when 9 laps to go, about half of AI pitted again for fresh tyres. That was a huge waste of time for them and by that, now its even easier to get good result in race in wnich SC or VSC was on track.
The conclusion: Its good that AI decides to pit under SC, but meanwhile they have to choose best strategy for them rather than pit BECAUSE there is SC and that can be an opportunity to gain positions, in reality they lose even more
