Regardless of whether a track is wet if it doesn’t rain during the race it is treated as a dry race and requires 2 dry compounds. This is a known issue/feature of the new rules and there are several threads in the forum about it with answers as above from Mods.
I've been through all the race results from our league and interestingly enough though, people who used inters and only 1 dry compound were not disqualified, including even 1 manager who used inters all race with only 1 lap on softs in the middle. Only managers who used exclusively inters were disqualified
There are plenty who have just read through the forum threads. Can’t post the link as on iPad, but type ‘Disqualified but Why?’ and you will see a good example with reply from a Moderator.
It happened to me in Japan earlier month in an offline race (ok maybe not the best example as advanced strategy caused it , but principle is same). Set strategy for M-S-S. Qualified on S, it must have briefly rained after qualifying and then stopped with wet track at start. First lap on Inters and then pitted for Softs for rest of race. Disqualified for not using 2 dry compounds.
P.s.I’ve looked at your race for Japan this month and see what you mean so this must be an inconsistently applied bug 🤷♂️
