Safety car bug


LLOYD1985

Recommended Posts

I'm in first place following the safety car and the AI behind me keeps slamming into me spinning me out and taking my position but when I try to get my place back I get told I illegally overtook the car and to give the position back, it was my position to begin with. If I try passing the Safety car I get the same message, I illegally over took the safety car and to move back behind the safety car.

Game is on Steam with Patch 1.9.

don't drive that close to the SC, leave a gap of 50 to 100 meters, solves all problems.

no, just don't drive too slow... I often leave a gap of over 200 meters and no AI has ever overtaken me under SC.
It is not driver's fault ... And this hint is also not working or at least it didn't worked for me too (cannot confirm 1.9 yet).

After the patch I was racing in Australia and the safety car was called. I emedietly was asked to slow down to meet delta time. I slowed down on the start/finish straight and Stroll overtook me . The I was told to catch the safety car queue and MAG behind was racing me. I had to drive racing speed and defend my position. At the end of the safety car we were all bunched up and waiting for green when my car became GHOST-ed and MAG went right thru me.
Never had that problem before patch. Like the AI dont care about safety car and they are racing full speed and overtaking.
Great job codemasters!

I cant say how I am frustrated after 3 weeks of waiting, how I hate this game and I am not going to play it until next patch :-| ... I'll try multiplayer, but career is unplayable as it still is not fun to play the game ... (hour practice, hour qualification, broken race) ... I am angry and I don't want to comment, how much ... :-| Almost two months after release and that broken. Ah I forget, it's already 2 years with SC in game and it still doesn't work flawlesly ... Hmmm ... Thanks Codemasters, just remember, I am not buying any F1 game from you any more.

Back to problem ... Well, my first race after three weeks waiting for SC bug tested fix ... v1.9, Xbox one, Singapore, 50%, 90 AI, no assists ...
After start from 20th position I jumped to 10th position because of the silly AI train on start (btw. is this going to be fixed anytime in this century?).
In lap 10 SC came out, I came to pits to change tires as Jeff offered a strategy change (btw. got that pitting on strategy achivement).
On first try, I get ghosted during coming to pits, Bottas went through me, so I flashbacked and tryied again, I than get a penalty for being too fast in pits (there begins the video) ... And I tried again over and over ... Also in one try, you can see that I was teleported from pits back to the main straight ...

I gave up after 10-15 tries and stayed behind Bottas.
After joining back to track, I was given drive through penalty for not catching the SC. Drive through was also given to Stroll, Magnussen and Kvyat.

In lap 11, Hamilton touched the wall and got broken its wing, he stopped on the track and got ghosted. Fell to last place.
http://xboxdvr.com/gamer/DJSmiX/video/37824886 (10s to the end of the video, Hamilton on side)

After SC got back to pits in lap 14 or 15, AI pitted and I went for my drive through penalty.

After I came out (lap 15), another SC spawned, I was said to overtake SC. Two laps later, I had AI on the horizon and I was told to overtake him (lap 16)
http://xboxdvr.com/gamer/DJSmiX/video/37824883
... but shortly after I was almost getting another penalty for not catching the SC but almost at the same time as the timer counts down there comes a message that SC goes to pits this lap so I wasn't given another penalty. But AI gets the penalty (Perez, Wehrlein 2x, Magnussen).
During the run I was told to overtake Magnussen, when I catch the SC train, it was driving too slowly and I had to avoid contact so I've overtaken him, but I was forced to gave the position back. As AI was very driving very slowly, I went ghosted and Hamilton has overtaken me ...
Anyway, after race was restarted two corners later, in next lap AI went for another pit (not used the SC period) and also part went to fulfill the drive through penalties they were given ...

So I've finished 4th! And I didn' overtake anybody on the track! AI went always to pits ...

I have no words ... From 20th to 4th almost without overtaking ... I have no words ... I am angry and I have no good words for your work ... You haven' fixed anything :-(

Yeah. Very frustrating. Like they dont test the patch. They waited for liveries to be allowed by teams and then they f.ucked up everything else in the game. Another month or so waiting for a new patch.

Had this happen a couple of times, actually recorded it this time. It's a 15 min video so I shall just post time stamps of the actual stuff.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyYInBm3d2I
3.50 Enter the pits in the lead under the safety car.
I thought perhaps I enter my pit box before the line but if you look at 4.00 it pops up just before.
4.45 Catch safety car
5.05 get rammed by Vettel and 'overtaken' then get told to give the place back. 
Skip 9 mins of having to flashback from being smashed off the road, overtaken, losing front wing trying to keep Vettel behind, overtaking the safety car on the straights then letting it back past once Vettel had slowed down.
13:55 Safety car is coming in and ghosts. This is where it got rather interesting. I stamped on the breaks to let it go getting ready to restart and noticed Vettel did the same behind me. Caught backup to the ghosted car thought about it for a second then gunned it expecting a penalty when I crossed the line or something. Due to being completely pissed off with the situation I decided to keep the 20 second lead and finish the race.

It's May '18 & still the issue persists!

I'm in my 1st season in career mode. Whenever a safety car has come on track, if I slow down to keep the gap to the car in front, the AI car at the back overtakes me (under the SC)! If I try to regain the position, I get a warning with a 10 second reminder to give the place back.

Sad thing is this happens under VSC as well. But here the situation is worse. As You guys know, there's a delta that we need to be under. So when I need to slow down for the delta to get into +, the AI car at the back overtakes me. They also seem to keep racing under the VSC as I need to be close to full throttle to be in touch.

I really dread safety car or VSC scenarios in my race as this flaw / bug really frustrates. Don't know if there's a solution to this!
