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

I'm going to be submitting this soon, but there are two things I need to test/confirm. "The Big One" seems to be causing a lot of problems. I'm unsure whether it is glitchy or the guide is incorrect. Feedback on how people have unlocked this and when would be appreciated. The other thing is in regards to boosting. If I have 3 players and 9 legendary AI, do I get more XP than if I have 2 players and 10 legendary AI? Obviously with 3 players you would be alternating between 1st, 2nd and 3rd as opposed to just 1st and 2nd... Has anyone tried this?

I got it when I accepted a contract with Red Bull in season 3.

I was on either Korea or Brazil and I accepted Red Bulls offer, who were leading the constructors champ. at that time.

Unsure on the XP thing.

I got "The big one" in my first season, it popped the very second I won the WDC with Virgin.

This throws me. How are you meeting their contract requirement when you're not even racing for them? Maybe the game thinks you are with that team as soon as you accept the contract? However, if that were the case, you would get the achievement for winning the Constructors Championship too. No one has mentioned anything like that, so I doubt it.

I really don't know what is going on with the achievement. If the general consensus is that it can be unlocked by winning the WDC (or) Constructors then I guess I'll leave it as is and put a disclaimer saying it is glitchy.

Thanks for the quick replies.

I was leading the WDC at that point and was driving for Sauber who were 2nd in the Drivers Table.....

Haha, you probably could have mentioned that before. What you're saying though, is that the achievement popped as soon as you accepted the contract with Red Bull? That is strange...

The guide has been submitted. Hopefully a mod will sticky it, to prevent it from constantly slipping from the first page.

Not sure if you know this already but "Silver Arrow" and "Tifosi" can also be achieved in Career Mode.

World Champion - Expert60
Win the Formula 1 Drivers' Championship on the Expert Difficulty setting

Well, here it is, the hardest achievement in the game. Let me break down for you what the expert difficulty entails.

*All assists off--This includes traction control, automatic gears, ABS, racing line, and brake assist (which is useless, so no big deal losing that).

*Simulation options set to full--This includes realistic rules and flags, tyre simulation, fuel simulation and full damage.

*The AI is set to legendary difficulty.

The biggest hurdle for most will be the lack of traction control and the use of manual gears. Without traction control, spinning becomes a common occurrence. Even the slightest mistake and you will be punished. My advice, never brake whilst turning. NEVER. It's just asking for trouble. Go wide, brake, then turn. Do not push full throttle when coming out of a corner. Ease back up to speed, or you will spin. Be very wary of the kerbs and do not go off road.

Learn the tracks in and out. You need to know the best lines. Also, opt for consistency. No point going flat out if you're going to spin and lose more positions than you gained. Your car setup is important too. This site has great setups for each track. For more hints, see here.

The achievement must be done in Career, so you are going to need to wait until you get contract offers from better teams, to have any chance of winning the Championship on expert.

At the end of the day, nothing beats practice.

Alternative Method (Easier)

Start the season (first race, Bahrain) on expert. When you get on the track, enter the pause menu and change the assists to whatever is easiest for you. You're going to trick the game into thinking that you are playing on expert. Before ending the session, whether it be practice, qualifying, or the race, enter the pause menu again and set the assists back to what they originally were (outlined above). The game autosaves at the start and end of the session, so you can trick it in the middle. Continue to do this for the entire season, win, and the achievement will come. A few things to note:

*Do not save a setup whilst you have any assists on. This will cause the game to autosave, thus ruining the exploit.

*You can restart a race with assists set to on, same for qualifying.

*You can enter the garage with assists set to on.

As long as the game doesn't autosave when you have assists on, the exploit will work.
Another note on this achievement. Although you can change the driving assists to suit your needs, the other factors that are activated when choosing Expert mode (tire and fuel simulation, AI driving ability, etc...) cannot be changed. So if you're not very good (like me) and have a hard time winning against the Legendary AI drivers, this achievement still won't come easy!

For "The Big One" achievement i believe it functions exactly the same as "Attracting Attention" with the difference being that a team leading the constructors championship must be offering a contract. I received the cheevos at the exactly the same time in my first season when lotus offered to resign me while I was on top of both drivers and constructors championships and the cheevo popped without me even accepting the contract.

Agreed
I also think that the game ratings from each game are getting worse each day. 8 /10 that only applys for 2 cheevs the rest are easy ish to do

x360a allows the guide creator to post their own thoughts on the difficulty. Obviously not everyone is going to agree. However, I have to point out, it is difficult to get 1000. I'm not rating 48/50 achievements. Very few people have won a season on expert. Not many have completed the game, thus I don't see why there is an issue. You may not agree but then I'm sure I wouldn't agree with your proposed difficulty rating. Who is right?

Until x360a decide to have polls like PS3Trophies do, you're just going to have to live with it.

You need to have the most points at the end of the season to win the Championship. If playing on easy, you should be able to win each race, making this a foregone conclusion.

You should note that you do not have to do these consecutively

Hm, that's a hard one.

I tried boosting it with somebody a couple of months ago - sprint race, created a party in multiplayer mode, it was just the two of us - and it didn't unlock until there was an "outside player" in the session.

I can't really say that it's not boostable with friends only, though, maybe it just needs a certain amount of players to unlock (in our case it was 3 or 4 players).

I'm not certain about being able to boost the ranked gp win,
But you definitely have to chose grand prix and not sprint race.
And I got it with 2 people (me and the other guy) in the lobby, so you can unlock it with 2 people, maybe just not with only people of your party. You'll need someone else to confirm that.

I'm absolutely sure that I got this Achievement in a sprint race.

It was one of the first ones I unlocked and I only did sprint races for the first month or so!

100%!
