Great to see this is also coming to Xbox One.
I have a few tangentially-related issues to some of those in the list that have happened while racing on Xbox One.

Regarding safety cars, I've been overtaken as the lead car after getting a message that the safety car is pulling in; at that point, I should be the pace car. Specifically on China, the notification popped up as I entered sector three and I hung back, slowing the pack down and weaved down the straight, only to be overtaken by a Merc. I then repassed him to take back my rightful position and was handed a drive-through penalty for illegal overtaking. I had to use a Flashback to undo it (as a test, I drove slowly down the back straight again, and it happened again). This was long before the first safety car line.

And an issue with slowing down to let cars pass -
In Qualifying, if I've done my timed lap, I will slow down to let AI drivers pass if they're right behind me. Doing so brings out yellow flags. This seems odd - I'm only slowing down slightly, and only long enough to let someone past. I don't know if yellow flags invalidates lap times, or if AI react by slowing down, but that seems odd.
Online, a guy was driving slowly down a straight (not terribly slowly, just slow enough to indicate we were being allowed to pass). There were about three of us racing who caught and passed him. I was second in the group, but after the first guy passed yellow flags were waved because of a slow-moving vehicle. So as I passed, I was warned that I had to let him back past - that's when I realised that he wasn't even on the lead lap, he was a backmarker letting us lap him, yet the game instructed me to let the thirteenth-placed driver overtake me while I was running in tenth.

Very nice patch for the A.I but sparkles are a bit discret.I don't ask for her in every corner but i think you should put her with more drag.It's like they stay stick to the back of the car and don't go to the track.
And a last thing, you have listen some persons for sitting positions, the result is you fix that but now some cars we don't see the helmets in offset t-cam!(mercedes,haas and others....)
I hope you can lift up a bit the driving position to see a bit the helmet in offset.

You have change the size of the helmets!
It's very disgracious!
They are to small!
Please fix that because apart this problem, the patch is really good!
