Introduction

Welcome to F1 2011. This iteration of the premier motorsport sees a drastic improvement in handling. You're no longer going to spin when just looking at a kerb, you can now attack them. Along with improved handling, Codemasters have implemented all of the real world rule changes. KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System), DRS (Drag Reduction System) and the new Pirelli tyres are in. Their inclusion makes for some very exciting racing. The safety car also makes an appearance, fans have been begging for it since last years game was released, so it's excellent to see Codemasters taking that on board.

Step One: Co-op Championship

First thing, you'll want to find a partner for the Co-op Championship. Look here: Co- Partners. Next, start your Co-op Championship on easy (brake assist off) and set the distance to 3 laps. You're going to win every race, while your partner finishes second. On easy, the AI is about 10 seconds slower than average, so it shouldn't be too taxing.

Step Two: Single Player Career

Start up Career mode in single player, choose one of the better teams available, such as Williams or Force India and change the settings to easy (brake assist off). The distance should be set to 3 laps (Long Race Weekend). At each track, do at least 10 laps in practice to unlock the "Test Driver" achievement. Win every race and hopefully you'll receive a contract offer from Ferrari, Mclaren or Red Bull. If you receive an offer from any of these teams, take it. Next season, switch the difficulty from easy to hard. You need to win the Championship on hard, then you are done with Career mode.

Step Three: Multiplayer

This year is light on multiplayer achievements thankfully. Either race legitimately and try to win 35 races, or find a boosting partner here: Boosting Partners and boost in private races. The best track to choose is Monaco. Simply crash at the first corner, whoever is further along the track when they crash will be awarded a win. Also, try to avoid touching anything in one online race to be awarded the "Keeping it Clean" achievement.

Step Four: Miscellaneous

There are quite a few miscellaneous achievements, such as winning with manual gears or without any assists. Refer to the achievement guide if you're having trouble with any of these.

Conclusion

Whilst F1 2011 may not look too different on the surface, if you dig a little deeper you'll find an addictive experience, one that mirrors the real Formula One near perfectly. The achievements are a lot easier this year, the massive multiplayer grind is gone and the expert achievement has been toned down to hard. Everyone should be able to complete the game and have an amazing time doing it.

Season Opener10
Complete your first Career Race

Upon starting the game, select Career from the menu. Choose your team and advance to the first race (Australia). You literally need to finish the race, if you crash it will not unlock.

Pole Position20
Take the first Pole Position of your Career

Within Career mode you must qualify with the fastest time to unlock this achievement. The simplest way to achieve this would be to change the settings to easy (though turn off brake assist) and choose a short race weekend. If you choose a short race weekend, there is only one qualifying session, as opposed to 3 for a long race weekend. Make good use of your KERS and DRS to squeeze out every last second of lap time.


Just the Beginning30
Take your first Career victory

Rather self explanatory. To make it easier, you can change the settings to easy and decrease the amount of laps to 3. Cross the finish line ahead of all of your opponents (in Career mode) to unlock this achievement.

Lightning Fast30
Set the fastest penalty-free lap of the Race in any game mode

Start a Grand Prix and change the difficulty to easy. Choose 1 lap race distance and either Red Bull, Ferrari or Mclaren. If you win the race (which should be a foregone conclusion really), you will have the fastest lap. Do not cut corners or run into other cars, as you can receive penalties for these actions, thus voiding the achievement.

Sublime Talent30
Set the fastest lap in every session of a Long Race Weekend in any mode

Either in Career or Grand Prix mode, choose "Long Race Weekend". Change the difficulty to easy too. There are 3 practice sessions, 3 qualifying sessions and obviously the race. You must set the fastest lap in each of the sessions and the race. You can check your competitors times whilst in your garage. You may also fast forward time (). If you have a time in practice that you don't think will be beaten, you may skip to the next session.

Be on top of the time sheet at the end of each practice/qualifying session and the race to be awarded this achievement.

Push the Button15
Cleanly overtake an opponent while KERS is activated

KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) is an 80 bhp speed boost that can be used for 6.67 seconds per lap. KERS is signified by a battery icon in the lower right corner. If it is full, it will be red. As you use KERS, the battery will deplete. When you're coming alongside an opponent, press and hold to activate your KERS and cleanly overtake them (do not touch the other car).

Note: Three of the teams do not use KERS. These teams are Lotus, Virgin and HRT.

It must be done in a race, qualifying and practice do not count.

Winging It15
Cleanly overtake an opponent while the DRS is activated

DRS (Drag Reduction System) refers to the movable rear wing. In qualifying, you may use DRS as often as you like for an increase in straight line speed. In races, you need to be within a one second gap (to the next driver) when crossing designated points on the tracks. The DRS zone is a white line, going horizontally across the track. If you're within the one second gap when you cross the line, you will see the DRS button in the bottom right corner turn green. This means you can use it. Activate it by pressing and cleanly overtake another car. There is an audible click when you activate it and you will see the DRS button flash. If you brake or press again, DRS will deactivate.

Most circuits have one DRS zone, but a couple, such as Montreal and Monza have two. Be careful when using DRS (especially in qualifying) as you will have severely reduced downforce and thus less grip. Straights are fine. Also, DRS is disabled in the first two laps of a Grand Prix, for two laps after a safety car/restart and completely disabled if the race is wet.

An example of a DRS zone is shown below (Australia):



Test Driver10
Cover a total of 500 Practice miles / 805 kilometres in your Career

In Career mode, select either a short or long race weekend (long will have 3 practice sessions, short will only have 1) and drive around the track in practice. A track such as Monza would be the quickest, as there are very few braking points. If you only did Monza, it would take about 3 hours to cover 805kms. You may want to mix it up though. Use the time in practice to test out your car settings and try to improve upon your laps to keep things interesting.

Alternatively, you can do 10 laps on each track as you make your way through the season. This should see you unlock the achievement without too much monotony.

Co-op Drivers' World Champion50
Win the Drivers' World Championship in a Co-op season

This can only be done over Xbox Live. To find a co-op partner, look here: Co-op Partners. Select multiplayer from the main menu, then choose Co-op Championship. Invite your partner and proceed to race through a season (19 tracks). You can set it to easy and lower the amount of laps to 3, if you're looking to get it done quickly. Whoever finishes with the most points at the end of the season, wins the Driver's World Championship. Points are awarded to the top ten finishers in each race. The amounts are as follows:

1st - 25
2nd - 18
3rd - 15
4th - 12
5th - 10
6th - 8
7th - 6
8th - 4
9th - 2
10th - 1

Note: If you want to avoid doing two seasons (one for you, one for your partner), both of you need to win 9 races. When the 19th and final race is upon you, have one person quit out during the race while the other goes on to win. They will unlock the achievement. Next, the person who quit invites the person who won and they reverse the roles.

They're on Which Buttons?20
Win a Race without activating KERS or the DRS once

Change the difficulty to easy and start a 1 lap race. Do not press or at any point. If you win, you unlock the achievement. On easy, winning without KERS and DRS really shouldn't be an issue. If you have any incidents, simply press back to use a flashback.

Do it Yourself20
Win a Race in any mode using manual gears

Choose Grand Prix from the main menu and change the difficulty to easy. Once you've changed it to easy, switch the gears from automatic to manual and turn off brake assist (within the same screen). By default, shifts up a gear and shifts down. Listen to the engine and keep an eye on the rev limiter, they're both good indicators of when to shift gears. Simply finish the race in first position to unlock the achievement.

Note: This can be boosted in online multiplayer or splitscreen mode.

On the Bounce30
Beat Alberto Ascari's record of 9 successive Career victories

You need to beat Alberto Ascari's record, so it's 10 successive victories. Whilst 10 successive victories may sound daunting, the fact that you can do it on any difficulty means it's actually very easy. In career mode, choose easy and set the distance to 3 laps. Do a lap or two in qualifying so that you're near the front of the pack for the race. Once you are in front, you shouldn't be caught. If you have an accident, use the flashback feature () to rewind. As soon as you win your 10th consecutive race, the achievement will unlock.

Drivers' World Champion50
Win the Drivers' World Championship in Career

You can actually do this in your first year, if you put the difficulty on easy and select one of the better starting teams (such as Williams or Force India). Set the distance to 3 laps and win/finish within the top 3 in the majority of races. This will more than likely see you win the Drivers' World Championship. You can check the standings on your laptop, by selecting "Standings" and "Drivers". You need to be on top at the end of the season (19 races) to be crowned as champion.

Constructors' World Champion50
Win the Constructors' World Championship in Career

The Constructors' World Championship is based upon your teams total points. For example, if you win the first race and your teammate comes second, your Constructors total would be 43 (25 +18). In order to be awarded the Constructors' title, your team must be on top of the Constructors' table at the end of the season. I suggest setting the difficulty to easy and winning every race. Even if you have a terrible teammate, winning all the races should be enough for you to clinch the title.

If you're having trouble, try accepting a contract offer from Ferrari, Red Bull or Mclaren, as those teams have some of the best drivers.

Precision Driving30
Complete any Race without colliding with another car or object

Set up a Grand Prix with "Short Race Weekend" selected and 1 lap distance. Skip immediately to the race, this will place you at the back of the grid. Wait 10-20 seconds once the lights go green, then amble your way around the track, making sure not to hit any walls. If you find yourself catching up to the other cars, slow down. You'll be awarded the achievement when the results screen pops up.

Drivers' World Champion (Hard)100
Win the Drivers' World Championship in Career on Hard or Expert Difficulty

Unless you're a real life F1 driver, I suggest you stick with hard rather than expert. Here is what the hard difficulty entails:

*Pro AI
*Traction Control on Medium
*ABS on
*Full Simulation Settings (Tyre wear, fuel etc)
*No Dynamic Racing Line
*Manual Gearbox
*Full Damage
*Two Flashbacks

The pro AI are no slouches, so you're going to need to be at one of the best teams, such as Red Bull, Ferrari or Mclaren. Therefore, you won't be able to attempt this until at least your second season in Career.

The biggest obstacle for most will be traction control, followed by manual gearing. With traction control on medium, you have a little bit of lee-way with your throttle application, but it is still easy to spin. Basically when taking corners, you want to go around them at a constant speed (relative to the corner). When exiting, if you apply too much throttle your rear tyres will spin, losing traction. This usually ends badly. It takes a lot of practice to get used to driving without full traction control. On full you're basically super glued to the track. Going to medium, it's akin to driving on an ice rink.

Sudden throttle application leads to wheel spin, which leads to loss of traction. Keep this in mind when racing.

Again, when it comes to manual gears, it is all about practice. Some corners you'll be going down to 1st gear or 2nd gear, you need to test it yourself, so take advantage of the practice sessions. Shifting up is quite simple, listen to the engine and watch the rev limiter, when it's in the red or the engine starts "screaming" at you, it's time to shift.

In the races, be smart. Do not use all of your KERS on the very first straight, you may need to defend against AI later in the lap and KERS is a very effective means of defence. Stay out of trouble, be consistent and hopefully you'll come away with some solid points. You do not need to win every race!

If you want to be a little bit sneaky, it is possible to cause other cars to retire, by making them run into the back of you. For some reason, the back of your car is extremely strong. If you find yourself in front of someone, brake a little harder than usual. If they run up the back of you, they will likely retire. This is an easy way of knocking your rivals out, if they're getting too close to you in the Championship. It's not really in the spirit of the sport, but in terms of getting the achievement the easiest way possible, it is fair game.

Finish on top of the Drivers World Championship table with the difficulty set to hard to unlock this achievement.

Note - EASIER METHOD:

When you are starting your career, set the difficulty to hard before each race. Once you're on the grid, enter the pause menu and change the assists to whatever you are comfortable with. For example, you can change manual transmission to automatic, traction control to full etc. You will still be racing professional AI and there will be tyre wear + fuel to take into account. When you are about to cross the finish line, enter the pause menu and reset the assists back to what they were on hard. This tricks the game into thinking you have been playing on hard the whole time.

You can leave auto save on (ignore the fact that it autosaves when you change assists, it doesn't matter). However you may prefer to turn it off and save manually, as it is sometimes easy to forget to change the settings back to hard.

Make sure you don't save any setups while you have the settings changed. You can restart a race with the assists changed, just make sure you change them back to hard before ending the session.

Blue Flag20
Lap at least 6 other cars during a Race in any game mode

Start a Grand Prix of 20% distance, any track. Choose either Red Bull, Mclaren or Ferrari and change the difficulty to easy. To lap a car, you must overtake them when they are on a different lap (less than the one you are on). With the AI being around 10 seconds slower on average (on easy) you should start lapping them after 7-8 laps. Simply lap 6 cars before the race finishes to be awarded the achievement.

If you have a lot of spare time and wish to make it easier on yourself, set the distance to 50% instead of 20%.


Have You Considered DiRT3?15
Drift your F1 car 10 metres or more

This will more than likely be your first achievement. If you turn down traction control to either medium or off, any sudden application of the throttle when turning will see you drifting/spinning all over the place. Therefore, change the traction control setting, turn your car whilst applying full throttle and you will make good progress towards the 10 metres. It is cumulative, but will only take a few corners.

Trophy Collector25
Win a Race at each of the 19 circuits in any game mode

Set up one lap Grand Prix' on each of the 19 circuits. Set the difficulty to easy, win and the achievement is yours.

Here is a list of the tracks for reference:

AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX

MALAYSIAN GRAND PRIX
Venue: Sepang, Kuala Lumpur

CHINESE GRAND PRIX
Venue: Shanghai International Circuit

Car Control20
Win a Race without any Driver Assists enabled in any game mode

There are 2 potentially easy ways of doing this.

1. Set up an online Custom Grand Prix session, set the race distance to one lap and assist restrictions to the following:

Braking Assist - BANNED
ABS - BANNED
Traction Control - BANNED
Dynamic Racing Line - BANNED
Gearbox - RESTRICT TO MANUAL
Pit Assist - BANNED

Invite at least one friend in order to be able to start. Simply win the race to unlock the Achievement.

2. If you have two controllers, set up a split screen race and make sure to set race distance to one lap, AI drivers to off and enter the difficulty settings by selecting "Difficulty Level". Make sure driving assists are set to the following:

Braking Assist - OFF
ABS - OFF
Traction Control - OFF
Dynamic Racing Line - OFF
Gearbox - Manual Sequential
Pit Assist - Off

Start and win the race to unlock the Achievement.

Be very aware of ONLY going full-throttle when you have finished steering out of a corner and your car is in a straight line again, otherwise you will lose traction and spin out

Impeccable Performance20
Win a Race after Qualifying in Pole Position in any game mode

Start a Grand Prix and set the event to a short race weekend and the race distance to 1 lap, as well as A.I. difficulty to Amateur. Just to be sure, set rules and flags to reduced as well as setting the weather to "clear".Use driver assists in any way you wish.

Since you have set the Grand Prix to a short race weekend you will only have to drive in one qualifying session - with the A.I. set to Amateur, you shouldn't have any problems posting the fastest lap and getting pole position.

Finally, win the race to unlock the Achievement.

Keep Your Friends Close20
Complete a full Co-op season

In order to unlock this Achievement you have to start an online Co-op season with a friend of yours and complete one full season (19 races).

The easiest way to attain this Achievement is for both of you to crash out every race until you have finished the season.

If you want to do it the way it was meant to be played, grab a buddy and race him as hard as you can for a whole season

Completionist15
Set a time in all of the Time Attack scenarios

Time Attack is a new mode in F1 2011 that gives you certain scenarios in which you have to set lap times. Basically, it is an improved time trial mode. There are Bronze, Silver and Gold lap times that can be beaten. Fortunately, unlocking this Achievement does not require you to beat the Bronze, Silver and Gold lap times, you simply have to post any lap time.

There are six time attack scenarios in which you will have to set a time in order to unlock this Achievement:

1. Montréal
Weather - Light Rain
Tyre - Intermediate
Car - McLaren Mercedes MP4-26

2. Monza
Weather - Clear
Tyre - Prime
Car - Ferrari 150° Italia

3. Spa
Weather - Heavy Rain
Tyre - Wet
Car - Williams FW 33

4. Melbourne
Weather - Clear
Tyre - Prime
Car - Virgin MVR-02

5. Nürburgring
Weather - Clear
Tyre - Option
Car - Mercedes MGP W02

6. Monte Carlo
Weather - Light Rain
Tyre - Intermediate
Car - Lotus Renault R3

Opportunist15
Perform a Pit-stop during a Safety Car period

Since Monaco is obviously the best circuit to trigger the Safety Car, set up a Grand Prix there and make sure you have selected 20% or more in race distance, since the Safety Car can only be triggered in 20%+ races.

Set Safety Car to ON and start the race.

I found that triggering the Safety Car works best at the hairpin (turn 6). Simply stay back a little and when the time is right, accelerate through the middle of the pack and put your car into the hairpin crossways - since no car will be able to pass you a massive line will form, therefore triggering the Safety Car.

When you trigger it a yellow box saying "Safety Car deployed" will show up in the top middle of your screen. As soon as this happens all you have to do is perform a pit-stop and the Achievement will pop.

Robot-Like Consistency30
Complete 5 successive laps within a quarter of a second of each other

If playing legitimately, this is by far the hardest Achievement in F1 2011. You will have to work on your consistency as a driver to post 5 laps successively that are within 0.25 seconds of each other. For the average driver, this will require a lot of practice and patience as even the slightest mistake will void your run and 0.25 seconds doesn't allow any room for screw-ups.

Here are some tips to help you practice for consistent lap times:

- Use the Red Bull. It is the smoothest car to drive and has the best traction.
- Know your braking points and stick to them. Try to find markers around the track that make it easier to set up a braking point you can remember.
- Stick with your shifting-rhythm, meaning: try to downshift on each corner like you did in the previous lap.
- Use KERS and DRS on the same parts of the track on each lap.
- Don't force it. If you're not having any luck, stop your session and unwind a little - trying to force it usually makes your lap times worse.

Luckily, you are allowed any and all driver assists.

Alternate method (easier): See this post here.
