    Hi there,

    i'm really enjoying codemaster's new F1 title however for (over 250 hours), it looks like one of the most irritating and game breaking bugs has not been fixed thus far.

    - It looks like when safety car is deployed, the AI will break their Pit strategy most of the time:
    they will pit almost at the end of the race and sometimes will even do extra pit stops..... :-(

    it occures not on every race but very often! it makes everything much easier and breaks the game....

    what do you think guys?

    My experience is actually quite positive with tactics: I once got lucky when a race got neutralized, exactly when I entered the pit lane. Being able to join the line within a lap, all cars who then had to pit fell behind, as well as a couple who thought their mediums would hold to the end but didn't. Then I was lucky that #Kimi7 had a gearbox-issue allowing me to finish 4th in Renault in a 50% Aussie GP on Legend level. Everything came my way.

    But likewise it was the race after in Bahrain, that I got it wrong with the rubber/strategy. So you win some, you loose some, just like the real guys - particularly those in midfield. So, my experience is different and therefore never considered to switch of SC, VSC or anything of the sort.
