When you start the game, you'll be prompted to participate in the Young Driver Test Day, choose to accept. It can also be found within the menu at a later time. During this mode, you will be introduced to F1 2012, and you will be taken through a short tutorial. Complete the tutorial and ensure that you get all "chevrons" and gold medals to unlock Let's Try That Again, Just a Taster, Earning Your Stripes, Graduation Day, and Future Champion.

Season Challenge 1: 7 Achievements - 125
Start a Season Challenge on Easy difficulty, and pick whatever team you are comfortable win. You'll want to stay with this team through the entire season to unlock Staying Loyal. Just win every race, and make sure to do well in all the qualifying rounds as well. Make sure to set a valid lap time in One-Shot Qualifying to unlock The Pressure. After two races, you should have unlocked Making the Grade and Arch-Rival. Keep selecting rivals and beating them (but do not switch teams) to unlock Top of the Class. Make sure to win all 10 races, and at the end of the season you will unlock Winning Ways and Top Score.

Season Challenge 2: (Turn autosave off) - 4 Achievements - 90
You'll have to play this on "hard", and aim to switch teams as many times as possible. You'll want to pick a rival better than you, but don't aim for #1 right away. Play 1 race. Now SAVE the game. From here, win another race, then switch teams, and select a rival on your old team, and play 2 races to earn a spot back onto your old team earning you Back to Your Roots. Now dashboard out of the game, and start it up again, at this point you can turn autosave back on, and you will be back to the beginning of Race 2. Now proceed through the rest of the season switching to as many unique teams as possible to unlock Itchy Feet. Once you complete and win the Season Challenge, you will unlock Proving a Point and Hardcore.

Proving Grounds: 7 Achievements - 105
Start by setting 5 different clean lap times in Time Trial mode to unlock Trials FORMULA ONE, and try focusing on the Austin, USA track to unlock Austin Power along the way. Now play Time Attack mode, and get a gold medal time on all 6 tracks to unlock Having a Good Time and Gold Rush. Now onto Champions mode, you will have to complete all the scenarios on hard mode to unlock Golden Delicious, unlocking It's the Taking Part and Best of the Best along the way.

Career Season 1: 18 Achievements - 370
Keep in mind, you'll want to qualify first for every race in this season to unlock That's My Spot and The Equipment may be the Same.... During qualifying you should also aim for Zero to Hero, although be careful not to be out-qualified by your teammate. And don't forget about One Shot Hero, which can be done in a short race weekend.

Select Easy difficulty, long race weekend, and complete your first race by qualifying 1st for the race, using no driver assists, manual gears, and the cockpit camera to unlock Hot Lap, Polesitter, FORMULA ONE Pro, Technical, Immersion, FORMULA ONE is Back!, The Spoils of Victory, Race to Victory, From the Front and Domination. Also, make sure to not collide with other racers to unlock Keeping it Clean. Obviously, if you miss any of these, you are free to get them in later races. After a few wins, you unlock Made the Papers. In the later part of the Season, you should unlock In Demand as you gain offers, although you shouldn't accept any of them. By the end of the season, assuming you are first place, you will unlock Drivers World Champion for being first on the leaderboard.

Career Season 2: 4 Achievements - 85
During Season 2, while staying with the same team, they will email you about R&D, make sure to accept the first offer you receive to unlock New Direction. After a few races, they will ask if you are ready to stop, accept to unlock Cut Your Losses. After a few more races, you will receive some team offers, accept the offer from the best team to unlock The Grass is Greener, and complete the season with your new and improved team, hopefully ending up at the top spot and unlocking Constructors' World Champion.

Co-op Career Season: 2 Achievements - 80
You'll need to complete an entire season in co-op mode, and win both of the titles available. If you and your partner have the best team, you will both unlock It Takes Two Baby. You will also both be working towards Co-op Drivers' World Champion, which is awarded to the best individual driver. Both players should trade wins back and forth to keep the points very close to each other. Now, on the last race, have the host quit out, and the other player will finish the race to get the achievement. Once this is done, invite the other player back in, and let the host finish the race in first, making sure to win by enough points to beat the other human player.

Online Multiplayer: 2 Achievements - 35
For this portion, you'll just need to complete 30 total online races, unlocking Online Dedication and Online Addiction.

I wish I could be the one, The one who won't care at all
But being the one on the stand, I know the way to go, no one's guiding me.
When time soaked with blood turns its back, I know it's hard to fall.
Confided in me was your heart. I know it's hurting you, but it's killing me.
