Safety car pit stop glitch?

Recommended Posts

Career mode when safety car comes out if I pit I’m immediately told that I’ve done an illegal overtake and must hand back position. obviously this is I’mpossible and I’m given a time penalty. Is this a glitch or an I being dumb? 
Jeff usually even suggest a change of strategy to pit early. This has happened to me about 4 times now and is super frustrating, cannot find anything on this topic already.

Hi, I would recommend doing this thread in the "Technical Assistance" forum and you should fill out a full bug report and if possible a video of the incident.

Here is how you report a bug:

1.       A description of the issue. Please include any error codes here.

2.       What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen)

3.       Game-mode?

4.       Are you able to recreate the issue? If so, please include recreation steps on how you encountered this issue.

5.       How often do you see this problem? Is it the only time or does it always happen?

6.       Have you tried any troubleshooting? We recommend the steps here as a starting point for any issues. Please let us know what troubleshooting methods you have tried while creating this post.

7.       Any accessories you are using (gamepad, wheel etc)

8.       Any screenshots or video of the issue? If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears.

Are you driving faster than the pace of the cars on track when you enter the pitlane? I'm not asking as if you're doing anything wrong it's just that it wouldn't surprise me if the game didn't differentiate driving on pitlane from driving on track and considered a quick pit lane entry an 'overtake' if you actually end up ahead of cars relative to where they are on track.
