    Stuck in Pits/very long stop at Monza + wrong tyres and options show when creating pit strategy

    My Club ran the following online race last night in a private lobby. We had 11 starters. All but 1 of us got held/stuck in the pits.

    I pitted on lap 23. My car's fuel had refilled to where I wanted it and I had no damage but was still held there until I retired to pit and spectate mode. I had used a strategy made while in one of the pre race sessions. It had changes to default tyre pressure (reduced to approximately 1.6 front and 1.55 rear) and I changed the amount of fuel when I pitted before pressing close on the pit box window.

    Others had pitted for damage and or fuel. The first to pit had pitted after 9 laps for damage. He eventually got released after we'd just called the race off (around lap 27. His pit stop lasted approximately 40 minutes and he was the first to pit (to fix damage). One driver (the declared winner as last man standing) didn't have the held in pit problem and still pitted twice.

    Here are the race settings which took place last night Sat 7 November at 9:30pm.

    Also in the strategy during practice there were two options for tyres. One was soft and the other medium or hard. I backed out of this and created a new setup without touching the tyre option. The only tyres that the Ford Mk iv comes with are the vintage 1968 tyres which work in all weather.
