Button took out Vettel on Monte Carlo, carbon fibre every where and still no saftey car what must happen for the safety car to come out. I mean there would of been no way they could clear that quick

I'm only on 25% and professional, its stupid, there is obviously a safety car in the game as in the champions mode there is one on the Button challenge

I have just played it there and I "accendtly" put someone into the wall and still no safety car. Why put it in there if that certain feature does not make an appearance

There must be SC somewhere. If anybody see it please make some feedback when and how it appeared.

Thanks. What was your race lenght? Full or reduced flags & rules do you play? I don't know does it matters or not but you never know.

I just done the Canadian GP and we had a safety car period, I and Hamilton both crashed on the entry and exit of the last chicane and caused the slower lapped cars to crash too, 4 Cars retired due to this (They were Maldonando,Hamilton, Petrov and De La Rosa. I luckly escaped with a Broken Front Wing and a Damaged Suspeion and Rear Wing. It was on 100% and Rules was on Realistic.

So it looks like the longer the race the more chance of a SC, what difficulty are you playing on

Yeah, the Rear Wing damage does show on the little menue, when you check the tyre wear and that. The suspenstion didn't tell you but the feeling of the car around few cars seem very off then it was the lap before the insident. Rear Wing had a yellow on it on the little side menu in the race.

With the suspension, maybe it was damaged or it just that it felt different and wasn't really damaged.

In Monaco I had a 29second lead by the end of the first lap because Hamilton (P2) spun in torrential rain at Turn 1 causing the rest of the field to crash/stop behind him. 10 second penalty for Hamilton, 6 retired from damage, not a Safety Car in sight.

Is it possible the Safety Cars are only for 100% races as they may cause too much of a detriment to shorter races? I'd prefer them for the realism, but it would seem a logical argument.

Are you sure you have the safety car option turned ON, and not OFF? Cause I've seen the safety car multiple times. Of course I've always been more or less involved in the accidents... :D

I can't turn it on or off in career. In quick race there is this option but in career I can't.

In Monaco I just made a complete massacre in turn 1, many cars involved. SC was nowhere but damaged cars just disappeared in an eye blink. Career mode, 25 %, reduced rules.

Well I have not bought the game as not enough cash on me but I hired it, cant go online but thats fine for now.

On topic first race and I got the safety car out, I didnt try but it happened. Had rules on realistic but race length on 25% so the idea of it having to be a long race are false.
