Pit strategy not working for me after patch 3.
Deleted old pre-patch 3 setups as instructed before continuing my career - racing at Red Bull Ring in Marek LMP2 car. Created a new pit strategy to change to wet tyres as I know it's going to rain 4 laps in. Rain starts, so I pit - get nice new softs instead of the pre-selected wets.
Tried several new strategies, all result in giving me the same tyre compound as at race start. Fuel and repair settings seem to work.
I find it much to difficult to concentrate on driving and using the menu structure to alter the pit menu at the same time. I really wish the old pause and then set pit details was still available (as in Pcars1).

Make sure you don't have "recommended" in the tire selection in the pit strategy, but have "all" selected instead, and have "wet" selected for the tire compound. I found this out the hard way last night after they sent me back out on the track in the middle of a thunderstorm with hard slicks. Once I restarted and edited the pit strategy and renamed it (for my reference to "WET") all was good.

Similar issue myself with LMP2 car at Abu Dhabi in career. Race is preset for rain 6 laps in, setup a pit strategy for wets, no fuel, no damage repair. I get the animation screen, car is jacked up and tires are never changed. Had this happen 3 times in a row so far.

Edit: checked the recommended status, changed it to all, all fixed.
