The mission was made easier in one of the updates - so I suggest that the OP makes sure that the game is currently updated [if you always have your console connected to the internet, it should be fully updated - if you never have, please connect it and the game will prompt if there is an update]
Even though many never had an issue with the chase before the patch, some did, which is why we had that update..
Best advice has already been posted - best to think ahead and try and cut the distance down.
