    Safety Car is so hard to bring out ...

    Link to the same post on Reddit. https://www.reddit.com/r/F1Game/comments/cnr4jy/the_safety_car_is_broken_in_f1_2019/ I mentioned in the comments of the latest patch notes that I haven't got a safety car or a VSC in my career yet, at this point I am at Japan with nothing. Cars have DNF'd beside the track, and others have crashed and their cars left sitting idle in the middle of the road. The game refuses to use the SC or VSC and it destroys the submersion of the game. I decided to prove my point and argue for the need to rehaul the safety car and VSC. I went into a solo Grand Prix at Mexico and tried to force the safety car to spawn. After a half an hour of trying, I discovered the only way that I have found to spawn it, I understand that other people get it more regularly, but many others are in my scenario, where the safety car is non-existent. (https://streamable.com/h9a0y) As you can see I was able to spawn the safety car by blocking the track with my car, there were no outlying issues, just a long line of cars bundled together. (https://streamable.com/jmkw8) In this scenario, I cause a multiple car crash which DNF'd three cars. Albon's Toro Rosso was parked on the main straight and the game DID NOT deploy a SC or even a VSC. Notice how the cars simply got deleted on the track map after the incident. This proves that the game simply does not understand when it is the right time to spawn a safety car. That crash was a potential red flag and yet the race continued as if nothing happened. TLDR: Codemasters must fix the safety car as it is broken and inconsistent. Watch videos for proof. ...mp4
