Team mates pitting on same lap

I've come across this before, but never bothered to do anything about it since it's not very common.
However, in a 75% race at Magny-Cours 2008 by F1Virtual, all AI team mates made their first pit stop on the
same lap, when the car behind loses a huge amount of time by queing behind. Only Minardi did not mess this up ;)

What causes this problem, and how can I fix it? Is it caused by having the pit bug fix in GPxPatch enabled?

Happens only with 75% race? How about reducing the laps in the dat file to 75% and test again?

No, it's certain tracks. One version of Imola has the same issue

If the ai aren’t pitting on their intended laps therefore splitting teammate stops by at least a lap, then they are running out of fuel and stopping before they do. The fuel consumption for ai and player needs adjusting. With more fuel left the teammate ai won’t stop on the same lap.

´What is the pit window value in the magic data for the different strategies?

Well, I experienced that as well at 100% races and on many different tracks. I think it's a general bug of GP4 and not related only to a few tracks. I might be wrong, but I don't know for sure.

Yeah it's normally related to magic data pit windows from my experience over the years - or fuel settings meaning they have no choice to pit before schedule.

When it happened to me, it was the latter. Lack of fuel means they pit earlier than the pit window. Solved by changing the fuel consumption in magic data.
