Patch 1.20 corner cut penalties being issued under Safety Car

Recommended Posts

A bug appears to have surfaced since the introduction of patch 1.20. During a 50% League Race on wednesday evening using the new patch, under the safety car the game handed out numerous excessive corner cut and collision penalties. Drivers received corner cut warnings/penalties, numerous drivers received 5 second on the spot penalties and one driver received a 10 second on the spot penalty for corner cutting. Also three drivers received 5 second penalties for severe collision, which they barely nudged the driver in front. Under the safety car, is impossible to make any advantage with the corner cuts as it is a controlled pace, so is nonsense really. Also have never seen this before in this game until this patch was applied.
The issue appears that penalties are handed out far for excessively

Can this be investigated why the new patch has decided to start handing out excessive corner cut & collision penalties under the SC?

Hi @mj_coop,

Thanks for the detail on the report, appreciated.

Have you seen this in other instances? Could you find out what the players who received the penalties did for the crashes?

With the corner cutting- what was the extent of the cut? Regardless of SC conditions, corner cutting rules still apply as in Real Life.

Hi @BarryBL

It is difficult to find further examples of this, but here is another relating to the excessive corner cut penalties. This was from our league race on wednesday. Same format. Track was Mexico. Completely excessive corner cut penalties. To put this into context, you receive a 10sec corner cut penalty for straight lining the 1st chicane at monza at high speed. It is hugely OTT for some reason, especially under SC conditions which is a controlled pace. I can say with a high degree of certainty that this never happened before that latest patch with regards to safety car fixes. :
