Slap on the Wrist

Receive a Drive-through Penalty then go on to win the Race  

Triggering a drive-through penalty only works when you set the rules and flags to realistic and set the race distance to 20% or more, as the game is programmed to only give time penalties under this distance.

Since the achievement requires you to win the race, I would advise you set up another Custom Grand Prix online session and invite a friend. Set up the race in any way you want, only make sure to select 20% racing distance and set rules and flags to realistic and damage to cosmetic, just to be sure.

As soon as the race gets underway, start cutting corners wherever you can. Simply cut every turn and in a matter of 1-2 laps maximum you should receive a drive-through penalty. Serve your penalty and let your friend give you 1st place, then simply finish the remainder of the Grand Prix.

Best way I can think to do this is to pick a race where your a lot faster than the oposition, set the game to easy settings and a 20% race distance, then when you need to come in for your pit stop just bomb it into the pits, break the speed limit and receive a drive through penalty, then just drive your pants off for the rest of the race. Couple of races on F1 2010 I had a 2 pitstop gap built up by the time I was coming in for my first pit

Monza... cut the FIRST part of the chicane at overtake a car or two. Do NOT cut the whole chicane or you get straight up DQF.

Easiest way to get a drive through is to do an illegal overtake. Melbourne is good for this. Start about 6th on the grid, 1st corner, cut across the grass. There's the penalty. Just make sure you are quick enough to still win the race.

If anyone is still having trouble with this achievement, I just found out you need to have the "Rules and Flags" option set to "Realistic." Otherwise you'll just get time penalties instead of drive-throughs.

Just got this. I was actually aiming for the "pitting while SC"-achievement by crashing into cars on Monaco, but only got myself TWO drive throughs. There was two SCs later on though, and I won - two achievements, plus the fact that I didn't know I had full damage on, so I got the "hit the wall at Monaco and win"-achievementas well. Lucky!
