Time Attack Gold Medal Guide

Videos for each track can be found below. Each video has track specific details on the best ways to clock the fastest laps. In the end, it does mostly come down to practice, but there are tips in there to help you shave off valuable seconds for each individual track.

I have added a number in brackets after each track name. I have ranked them in difficulty, 1 being the easiest (Austin) and 6 being the most difficult (Suzuka). I recommend that you try to do them in the order listed, leaving the hardest track for last.

Valencia [2]
Silverstone [4] *
Hockenheim [3]
Suzuka [6]
New Delhi [5]
Austin [1]


*For Silverstone, please note that you can enter the pits at the end of your lap, and you should end your lap about 0.3 seconds faster than normally.

If you are able to get all the gold medals you will earn yourself one of the most satisfying 20 achievements you may ever get.

I think you have to beat the lap time of 1:39.635 in Time Trial, Time Attack won't count. Should be easier as you are allowed to use your own setup.

I guess this is by far the hardest achievement in the game. Had little to no problems with Champions Mode or Season challenge on hard difficulty. Good guide, I will keep an eye on it once I go for the achievement.

UPDATE for Silverstone:

I think I have found a glitch (which has been put in real life F1 races and been noted by marshals)

IF you're doing the Silverstone track time challenge and you're almost catching up to the AI but the last few turns are a bit tough, just go into the pits (straight before the turn) and I've beaten the AI by 0.3 seconds.

Its pretty amazing cause I didn't think it would work but I noticed the pits and the line are pretty close, cancelling the actual turn before the finishing line. I hope this helps!!

Same goes for Yas Marina; heading into the pits on almost full speed, it will shave off about 0.2s from the laptime giving you opportunities to make fastest lap in Career

Great vids these, I am not AMAZING on the game but feel I can post some decent times. I was 0.2 off the Suzuka time last night, and wanna push on with it tonight Probably enjoy this more than a full career.

I've added a note about the Silverstone Pit "Glitch".

Yeah, the full career is really for F1 lovers. The races are really long, can be a little boring and hard as well.

I didn't have much fun in career mode but season challenge is great.

Great video!!!

I only needed the one for Suzuka as that is a bitch of a time to beat.

I deployed KERS in 4 spots.

1) Coming out of Degner, just for a second combined with DRS.
2) Coming out of the Hairpin just till I got to 3rd gear.
3) Coming out of the second corner at Spoon just for half a second. Relied on DRS for the run down to 130R.
4) The tiny bit of KERS I had left, I used for coming out of the Casio Triangle. It's a good thing I had something because I only beat it by 3 hundredths of a second.

What an awful time attack as there is almost no margin for error. Thank god as soon as I beat it the cheevo popped. Never again, or at least never again till 2013.

The World Record is in the low 1:32's I think. I can't even fathom how someone pulled out 3 seconds better than what the gold is. Serious credit to anyone who has busted into the 1:33's let alone the 1:32's.

Yeaah, I agree career mode is rather boring considering race lengths, I pit twice every race instead of once just to mix it up a bit, more fun when having to catch back up, ahaa.

Cheers for the vids! Will help greatly as i am struggling with a couple.xD
