I seem to be having continuous problems with this achievement, I have completed the r&d objective in all three practice sessions twice (in Australia and Malaysia) but no achievement.

Am I missing something or it is a bug??

You have to beat a certain time in one lap, once you done that the required time goes green. Sometimes you need to drive 2 laps before it turns green. Once you got that you can leave the training session and go to the next one. The achievement unlocks after the race. I never had any problems with it, got it on my first try. Hope it helps

Thanks for the quick responses, I guess that it will unlock eventually as I carry on through the season.

yeah you have to click R&D Objective and then Accept and then the tyres are bolted on and your car enters the track

You have to complete it in the 3 sessions, not just in 1 session.

Yeah I kept on failing it but as I said the R&D takes place in all 3 practise sessions so you need to beat the time in all 3 practise sessions for it to work

I got the cheevo in a single practise since I did a weekend on Medium Diff.

Something is definitely wrong with my game as I have now tried the R&D objectives in all 3 practice sessions at Shanghai and still nothing.

I have driven in and out of the pits and not returned to the paddock in between practice sessions.

Also, the Practice Makes Perfect achievement is also not unlocking :confused:

When your engineer says that there is a performance or R&D test available, the achievement is not done by simply exit the pit and race. Enter the engineer menu and then press the R&D objectives.. in this window you need to accept the task and then you'll be released on the track to beat the time. In general, it should unlock after the first valid lap - of course if you have beaten the expected time.

As for the Practice makes Perfect achievement you need one valid lap per session. So just get one valid lap in T1, then skip to T2 and set a valid lap and then skip to T3 and set there a valid lap and skip to Qualifying. The achievement should pop up, worked for me exactly that way

I have done exactly that, the target time for the R&D objective has gone green meaning that I have passed it but no achievement.

For Practice Makes Perfect, can you still get it even if you commit a penalty like corner cutting? (not on the flying lap but on subsequent laps)

Im on my 5th race now in season mode and I dont see the R & D objective all I see is the R & D screen at the front of the car nothing whatsoever in the Engineer part only retire to paddock, quick car setup and go to track..

Am I looking in the wrong place?

Also my engineer has said nothing about the tests.

Do you participate in all 3 practice sessions? Because that's where you get the R&D objectives.

The fifth race is cataluyna(sp)? if so i didn't have an objective there either. i had one the first 4, it skipped that weekend and is back now that i'm at monaco. Also on the weekend there wasn't one my engineer said they were testing new upgrades on my teamates car which may explain the lack of a challenge

It took me 4 attempts at both the R&D achievement as well as the Practice makes perfect one, It didn't seem to make sense why they weren't working but got them all in one go when it did eventually recognise the fact I had done what was necessary. Just keep trying http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/images/icons/icon7.gif
