I was on lap 19 of a 23 lap race, coming into the Brooklands/Luffield complex at Silverstone, when the rear of the car suddenly became loose on turn in and the car flipped as if wind had gotten underneath it. It felt like something broke at the rear, but I'd not hit anything and there was no prior warning. There was no real reduction in tyre performance, I was still setting lap times well within a couple tenths of my best, so I don't think it was a puncture caused by wear. All the tyre temperatures were in the green.

I was turning in, the car sort of went straight briefly, then flipped. I'd taken the corner the same way the previous 18 laps without issue.

Not sure if it's a bug or not so I thought I'd post it so the devs can have a look.

No gophers at Silverstone. Lots of hares, though. :p
