"Illegal Overtake" and unfair penalty overtaking a DC player under SC/VSC

Recommended Posts

  • A detailed description of the issue.
    Under SC/VSC overtaking a player who is Disconnected/Off the track/stopped on the track for any reason, may cause an "Illegal Overtake" situation and then an unfair penalty.
    As you can see on the video below, I overtook EmaPoli9 which was off the track with the X (of disconnection I presume). At that point it was impossible to give him back the position.
    I had same issue on F1 2020, overtaking a player who spun exactly in front of me under SC.
