When host launches up the race, and after being put on the starting grid goes into spectate (leaving one driver on the grid), the race and the timer starts, but for that one player that stays on the grid, the "wait for host" TAB window appears and it's impossible to close it. The window should not appear and the driver should be allowed to start the race and drive alone. The glitch happened when host launched a first race from the frontend lobby.
When host is already in spectate and then launches the race for one driver only, the race starts and the player can drive normally.
Pic rel: the unclose'able "Waiting for host" TAB window appeared when the host went from grid to spectator. It can't be closed and the race started.
