Make a different guide with the videos of each track on a completely different thread. Then just link that thread where needed. I did this with my Lara Croft Guardian of Light guide if you want to see an example of how to utilize it, though I used several threads.

As for the 1-2 finish I don't know. My first season Trulli never finish higher than 22nd, well once he managed 17th and thats because there was 7 DNF. My second season team mate is Vettel and he has only managed a 3rd. He mostly finishs 5th or 6th. Which is strange, as the real Vettel only finishs 5th or 6th if he is on pole.
Yeah, now I am regretting it because Button is driving like crap even though we have the best cars. He is mostly 7-10th and the only other time he got up to second he got a 10 second penalty so I still didn't get the achievement.

Why the hell did the team get rid of Hamilton instead of Button

I've added the new expert method to the guide. Also, changed the "Nifty 50" guide. I've changed the overall time to fit with this. I however, need to confirm the amount of XP you can get, so if someone wants to help me out, I'd appreciate it. I will allow you to win against me for 30 minutes to an hour, to check how much XP can be gained using this method.

Contact me if interested.

Guide is pretty darn good IMO. Great strategy for World champion, I'll be starting on it 2marrow for sure. Do you know the exact amount of XP you get for completing certain tasks in MP? I've tried to figure it out but haven't had much luck as of yet.

Cheers.

Codemasters haven't been very forthcoming with information in regards to XP totals. I've asked on their official forums, but no response from their representatives. Nor has any player been able to answer with certainty. Mark, who came up with the boosting method (Nifty 50), said you could get 1000-1400 per race. I think you must get more for having less assists on, though it doesn't mention this in the instruction booklet, where the rest of the XP information comes from.

With regards to the XP totals, if you are using the method of 2 people and 10 legend AI then the winner gets ~1820 XP and 2nd gets ~1450 XP.
From testing this last week the only thing that affects XP is the AI difficulty, the higher it is the more XP you get. Simulation settings, assists & number of laps make no difference.
So the best way to get XP is 1 lap races with rules & collisions off, whatever assists you want and the shortest track, Canada (with shortcuts) or Brazil.
Doing a 19 race session like this takes about 50 minutes and taking turns to win gets both players ~31000 XP.
Using this method last Wednesday we got about 220,000 XP, then on Sunday it was closer to 300,000 XP.

Thank you. Fixed the guide. Getting to level 50 doesn't seem so intimidating now. 35 hours is nothing compared to what we originally thought; 150 hours minimum...

I would say this guide is very close to complete. As always, if there are any mistakes, please point them out to me. Also, if anything is unclear, let me know.


Thanks to everyone who has assisted with the guide. I hope it helps.

When selecting race distance, it will literally say 20%.

It starts at 1 lap on the race distance selection, next is 3 laps, 10%, 20% etc. Keep pressing across until you see 20%.

My suggestion is to drive at Montreal, as it is a very short (and easy) track. Go to Grand Prix mode, turn all the assists off and change the distance to one lap. Difficulty on easy, flashback limit 4 and either Redbull, Mclaren or Ferrari as your team. Refer to "World Champion - Expert" for advice on driving without aids.

Just to confirm, the alternate method in "World Champion - Expert" DOES NOT work with this achievement, as I've tried, came pole possition with 1 lap on Istanbul and b4 I finished race I switched everything back won the race and didn't pop

Well, if you follow what I wrote for the achievement, you'll unlock it. I didn't mean to imply that the expert trick would work for that achievement. What I meant was, look at the expert guide for tips on controlling the car without traction control, etc.

Well I just thought I'd try it to make this a bit easier but obviously just can't be that easy

Edit:

For those struggling with True Racer achievement I found a set up from another forum which has helped me get the achievement and would like to share this set up. This was done on Montreal track 1 lap, use practise and qualifier to get used to set up. CREDIT GOES TO Nestroit FOR POSTING THE ORIGINAL SET UP.

To be fair, it would make sense, considering how the expert trick works. It's only one lap though and you have the 4 flashbacks, shouldn't be too hard to win.

online Nifty 50

Races
*Finishing in the top 10.
*Completing a lap without incident (no crashes)
*Completing a lap

To set up a boosting match, go to multiplayer and create a session. Set it to private and invite your friend.
You can change all of the simulation settings and alter the race distance. The quickest way to boost, is to set up a 19 race season (all at Montreal), one lap, ten legendary AI, collisions and flags off. Take turns winning, making sure to finish 1-2. Cut corners to make it easier. You should be able to get 30,000-31,000 XP per hour following this method.

You can check your total XP on the leaderboard.

So which online race mode is this? In custom GP I cannot find an option to add in additional AI cars and can only set it for me and one friend.

which online game mode enables AI cars with you?

Do you have to restart from scratch a new career to do the expert glitch, or can you do that when starting 3rd or 4th year for example?

It is custom GP. What you do, is select the "available slots" and the option to add AI cars will come up.

Thx for your fast reply Shelton.

So, basically when starting season 3, I just need to do that from 1st race till the last one, and I'm done?

No problem. Exactly right. When the new season begins, set the first race to expert. Every subsequent race will automatically be on expert, as long as you change the assists back during the race. The achievement will pop after the last race of the season, if you win the championship.

Thx, sounds perfect. I'll have to work on this after my 2nd season. I hope it won't be too damn hard with AI on legendary

- make sure you choose your toughest rival
- don't sign a new contract until after the last race
- win the drivers championship; this will guarantee you a minimum 3rd in the constructors even if your teammate gets no points, and giving "Big One"
- at the end of the season you are automatically number one on your team and get "Team Leader" even though you havent signed a contract yet
- now sign with one of the teams above you for "Hot Property" (you will always be offered at least one of these - whichever one your rival was with )

One thing I should mention; I don't know what would happen with "Hot Property" if you won every race and finished first in the constructors championship; there wouldn't be a team above you. It wasn't an issue for me as I only clinched over Hamilton in the last race, winning by 21 points.
I've won the drivers and constructors title 4 years on the trot but haven't unlocked the big one achievement. Not sure why, do you need to be the number one driver at your team?

If you have won it 4 years in a row, shouldn't you already be the number one driver? AFAIK, whether you are the number one or two driver doesn't matter. It's possible that this achievement is just glitchy. Keep trying...

Hey mate, when you start the race weekend, set it to expert. All assists will be off. If you then pause and change the ones you want, it will change to custom. However, if you change the assists back to what they originally were, it will switch to expert. It will say it up top, so you will know when the settings are correct.

Doing it the other way (turning off autosave) is unconfirmed, so do it at your own risk.
