On lap 32 I cut the last chicane while having a heated fight with Lume right on my rear, for some reason the game decides to declare it as an illegal overtake and tells me to drop back to P4 even though I was in front of Lume the whole time. Knowing that I didn't do anything wrong (apart from cutting the corner obviously) I kept driving without giving the position back which resulted in a 32 second penalty (30s for an ''illegal overtake'' +2s for cutting the corner) I think it is some sort of a glitch in the game and shouldn't be counted as a real penalty.

Why is this being ignored? The race is today and the outcome of this inquiry can change my and LuMe's starting position!

mate I told you 18 hours ago! :p

Case is being agreed upon so far but still needs closing. There's still 3 hours left until the race and I will keep the decision in mind for the grid, no matter the outcome :)

The stewards have decided to remove the 30 second time penalty.

Just want to assure everyone here that the stewards are not ignoring any enquiries. It is simply a matter of that the stewards panel consists of regular people with regular dayjobs/school. Sometimes we do not have time to close enquiries until a little later. We are doing what we can to try and get enquiries closed before the next race, but sometimes that is just not possible.
