Firstly yes i am playing a 7 season Career.

I chose Alonso as my rival in Season 1 and got a Ferrari seat when i beat him, then a Mclaren seat in Season 2 when i chose Hamiilton and beat him. Im going to chose Webber/Vettel as my rival on my current 3rd season and if i beat him and get an offer from Red Bull then i would of figured out the code =D

EDIT: I forgot to mention i have won every race so i have finished above everybody else so that might be a contributing fact. Basically if you want a seat in Ferrari, choose a Ferrari driver as your rival and beat him in the Championship.

Just clarifying, You HAVE to finish above your rival in the championship to be offered a seat by their team.

Ive tried this out and now im driving for Red Bull, i chose Vettel as my rival and beat him in the Championship.

I expect it's because you've only started the season. You don't get to pick a championship rival till towards the end.

thanks - that explains it. i have only done one race in career mode - a 3rd in bahrain from pole (pitting bug cost me the win) after which i decided to go for achievements and ranking up on multiplayer to get some knowledge of the circuits and leave career mode till last. guess the rival option will come in good time.

Hey guys its me j4cob187, i had to make a new account so that i could hook my achievements and my gamertag onto this website, but yeah you need to wait untill about race 13-16 to be asked about a rival. I got asked on both seasons at Spa and i got the contract offer as soon as i won as i have won both of my championships on the Spa race ( when ive wont at spa my points have gone high enough for me to win the Championship).

Im guessing the same will happen in this season.

Didn't do anything for me. I had Vettel as my Championship rival and beat him in the season by 20 points while racing for Virgin (7 seasons) and never had any intrest shown by Red Bull. How many seasons are you guys doing. If its low, the big teams will make offers early simply because its a short career.

Ahh yeah sorry forgot to mention you cant get Red Bull, Mclaren or Renault (I think) in your first year as the Rep needed is to high =S But you can get the others
