Here's a Video I've made of the "Robot-Like Consistency" Achievement.

If you would like to add it to the Guide please feel free:


Method and Settings Used (Taken from Video Description):

Main Menu > Grand Prix > Red Bull > Sebastian Vettel

Race Settings:
Participation Level: Long Race Weekend
Race Distance: 1 Lap
Difficulty Level: Easy
Weather Setting: Clear
Press Continue

Then go out to the Track and finish your “Out Lap” by crossing the Start/Finish Line which will start the Lap Timer.

Once the Lap Timer starts, drive your first “Flying Lap” as normal until you get to the Grid Positions on the Start/Finish straight.

As you come towards completing your first “Flying Lap”, slow down when you see the Grid Positions and Stop on the last Grid Slot on the Right, away from the natural Racing Line.

Accurately Line Up in the same position as shown in the Video (at 02:00). You can use the Grid Markings and the Letters of the Melbourne Sign to the right to always find the same Position.

Now wait for the Lap Timer to reach exactly 2 Minutes and Accelerate as hard as possible to the Start/Finish Line.

To Unlock the Robot-Like Consistency Achievement Trophy simply repeat this process for another 4 Laps (5 In Total). If performed correctly, you will Unlock the Achievement Trophy.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I used an adaptation of the Stopping on the Grid method which has been discussed by several people and was tested and illustrated by Vytenis yesterday.

Instead of Stopping on the Grid Slot Marked "38" like in Vytenis' Method, I used the Grid Position which was closest to the Start/Finish Line to give a shorter distance between the Car and the Finishing Line.

This is more likely to produce more consistent and accurate Lap Times as there is less distance to travel and therefore less variables, like having to turn if the Car is going Off Line.

Brilliant Tom, excellent video and explanation. I've linked to your post in the guide. I'll leave it like that for the time being, unless people don't like clicking links? I may post the video just under the link, I will decide in the morning.

for the slap on the wrist achievement why do you advise this to be done in with someone else?

I had a 15 second lead in the first 3 laps with the AI on easy and was able to serve my penalty and still come out with the lead a few laps later

Because there's always the possibility of someone not being able to beat the AI, even on Amateur.

We will add the single player way also, just to be sure.

Seriously, only around 15 hours?? And 5/10 Shame really, I think this should have been made pretty hard like the last one. Afterall, F1 is not exactly easy to get into, let alone excel in in real life. Should mirror the challenge.

Great Pole Position video, did you life the audio by Alonso from a different source?

I would even give 3/10 or 4/10

because difficulty glitch from last years F1 2010 works. And I got all singleplayer achievos (820G) in like 7-10hours. So I think those stats are good. Great Guide!

Don't worry mate, he was just explaining your method and providing a video for it. I will post "Thank you's" at the bottom of the guide eventually, so you will all be noted for your contributions to the guide.

It is a shame indeed. I'm not really sure why they went this direction with the achievements. On track, it couldn't be more different. They've upped the ante in terms of AI dramatically (for the most part).

Hitman provided that video, some impressive driving for sure. I've got no idea how he got Alonso commentating, lol.

i personally dont think the achievements are any harder nor easier, they are just less of a grind. like the level 50 online achievement took me like 6 months to get after release without boosting, this year i will have all the achievements by tomorrow i reckon if i can find a partner for online coop.

then i can finally enjoy the game lol

Thanks Vytenis.

I used the same methodology as the route you previously suggested and I just thought changing the Grid Position to the Slot closest to the Line would make those people who attempted the Achievement more likely to Unlock it on the first attempt.

I was also finding it slightly difficult to see the numbers marked on the Grid from the Camera Angle that I normally use, so I thought others might have the same problem as I was having.

I was quite fortunate that the Tip I explained in the Video of using the Letters of the Melbourne Sign on the Right hand side to help Line up the Car accurately was a pure lucky coincidence but should also prove to be very useful when players attempt to Unlock the Achievement.

Thanks Shelton.

I hope I've explained it well enough in the Video for anyone who has no previous knowledge of the "Stop On The Grid" method to understand exactly how to get the Achievement unlocked on the first attempt. To be honest, I would prefer the Video to posted in the Achievement Guide as it took quite a long time to Edit together, but it is of course completely down to you and daenius.

Then as the clock approaches 2:00 push yourself over the line. Then repeat again and again until it pops.
It's not precise by any means but may be easier than trying to set blistering laps consecutively.
Exactly how i did this one m8, i used Catalunya and got round in about 1:30 then slowed just before the line. Placed my nose of the car on almost exactly the same part of the finishing line and waited for 1:50 then floored it, took a few goes but got it.

Oh and i did this in Practice mode in my career so the laps i spent pounding round to do this would count towards the 500 miles in practice 'chievo

Hope this helps someone

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):

Can I request that this F1 2011 Achievement Guide be made into a Sticky Thread please.

It's annoying when users have to look around for the Achievment Guide on an Achievements based website.

The DRS zone in Australia is just before the pit straight. You can then use it down the pit straight if you were within one second at the first line.

In due time, the guide hasn't really slipped off the first page, it's all good. If other people want to write guides, we need to give them a chance. When they see a stickied guide, it discourages them I guess.

As an aside, there are a few things I need to fix up in the guide. Mostly small stuff, but I shall get it all done this weekend.

well, simply set the damage to full and then lower the difficulty level?

Or lower the difficulty level and set the damage to full.

"The Wall" is the right portion of the Monaco track after you come out of the tunnel, right before Nouvelle Chicane, where a number of drivers crashed at the 2011 Monaco race weekend (see video):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6x71MzWGKZ4
Set up a Grand Prix at Monaco and use any settings you are comfortable with. I would advise you to set rules and flags to reduced, though, as it could help you keeping ahead of the competition by cutting some corners and only getting warnings for it.You will not have to crash out in order to unlock this Achievement. Just touch the wall and drive along it slowly (make sure you slow down before you do, otherwise you WILL crash out) and go on to win the race.
i didnt crash there and still got the achievement; i broke my front wing in the first right after the start line, so i think you must hit any wall from the circuit, doesnt matter which one

You will be required to either win two Drivers' World Championships in career mode or online Co-op mode, each with a different team.Online Co-op is by far the easier choice, as you will have a friend to back you up and help you out by crashing off the competition.Once you are done with your first season and you win the WDC, start another one and select a different team.

If you consider doing this in career mode, be advised that unless you are a skilled/seasoned driver you will need to wait to get promoted to a better team than the one you are starting out with. After winning your first WDC, you will need to switch teams to win it a second time.

Don't worry though, after winning the WDC you will have enough offers on your table.In any case, make sure to set the A.I. difficulty to Amateur to help you get this Achievement faster
Don't know if this will work for other people, but I got this due to a glitch, here's what I had done:

Won the WDC in my single player career (had started a new season, got a couple of races in)

Won the WDC in my co-op career (hadn't started another season yet)

Went to custom GP 1st race I came second and this popped for me ...

Pretty random series of events and would be easier just to do 2 seasons in single player career than try to replicate it, but just wanted to share to see if anyone else gets this or at the very least highlight a glitch.

Well from that what you pust posted, it would make sence if you got the achievement if you won it single player, then multiplayer, but it popping up in a custom grand prix is really odd lol

This may have been covered earlier, but during the co-op season, if you win a race it counts towards the achievement i believe.
