Has anyone else been having a few problems with some achievements? Because I swear I should have "practice makes perfect" (participate in all 3 practice sessions) and the achievement "clean license" (Complete a race without being involved in an accident), but they don't pop up. Anyone else have problems similar to this?

and how does "Well drilled" (Perform the perfect pit stop) work?

I tried to get "Clean License" in a quick one lap race. Started at the back, waited for 20 seconds then went. Didn't touch anybody and yet it didn't pop. I've seen a few people on my list with it though, so I guess it's a case of being persistent. Eventually it'll pop.

As for "Well Drilled" I'll tell you how I did it. In the settings before the race, I made sure Pit Limiter and the other pit option were set to manual. Had the race at 3 laps. Told my crew I was coming in on the first lap by pressing 'Y'. When in the pits, I pressed 'B' when I entered, then hit the brakes when they told me. That was it.

I had the same issue with practice makes perfect

I tried it in career mode and making sure I posted a time in each session before going to paddock as well as quali and the race but it didn't pop.

Either you have to complete the whole practice session or skip it with RB and not simply exit to paddock after posting a time or it has to be done in grand prix mode rather than career

Seems kinda random here and there yeah what pops up and what doesn't. Played on Monaco for the cheevo to get pole and the win there. Got pole, got the win, no cheevo, kinda weird. Gonna give it another try tonight.

For "Practise Makes Perfect" I did it in Career mode. I had it set to long weekend with the Medium settings. I did about 10 laps on the first section which set a race time, I then pitted and then skipped to P2. I did about 5 -10 laps in this one and pitted and skipped to P3. Did about 5 laps in this and then skipped to qualifying and it popped.

It will pop before you hit qualifying if done correctly

Hm, well I have tried that, I hit up 5-10 laps in each session and at the end no achievement. But I did hit the paddock after the first session so I guess I'll have to try again.

One other problem that I'm seeing is achievements pop up after you do a task a second or third time, this happened to me with "seeking performance" (successfully complete and R&D test). First time I did it, nothing, but the second time around it popped up no problems.

Other than that the game isn't giving too many problems but I'm hoping there's updates in the happening.

Some achievements show that the unlock but dont show up on the gamertag. I saw Face The Press popping up but nothing on the list from my gamertag or xbox.com. Also, in the first race no contact with any of the other drivers was ever made. Seems these glitched achievements are affetcing both console and PC versions of the game.

EDIT: Face The Press popped up again after race 2. Not registered in the achievement list again. Wonderful, lol!

You don't even need to do so many laps. Yesterday I've done this one quite easy.. I just entered T1 and set one valid time, then I skipped to T2 and set with a new valid time and then get to T3 and set the last valid time - in total 3 laps and the achievement popped up

Btw, of course you need to enter a Grand Prix with the setting "Full Race Weekend" because only there you got all three training sessions afaik

You have to win a grand prix race, not a sprint, i thought that but i didn't read the achievement properly

I got that one on my first race. I guess you gotta make sure you're in first person view the whole time and yeah that's about it. Make sure its the right view, there's two views where you can kinda see the cockpit.

Other than that, not sure. Maybe try a few other races and see if it unlocks.

Did you accept a contract to be the number 1 driver?
If so, it doesn't take effect until the new season starts
