I thought I would add my 2 pence here (seeing as I need to post to get my account linked.

(I 've written a lot, so if you just want to know what I think works, see bottom paragraph... )

I noticed that some people were getting issue with this achievement (as was I) and I tried to follow an attempt involving crashing each race (and in the process I got this by chance).

So, I am in my second season as Red Bulls Number 1 driver.

As a test I decided to run each GP without setting a single Qualifying lap. I would skip straight to the Race and attempt to win. I managed to do this on each race (Start: 24th, finish: 1st). The only times I didn't skip straight to the Race was when an R&D Objective was available (I always attempted these).

So on

... my 4th Race I was asked to choose the path. I started on 'Aggressive' and chose to stick (missing my other R&D achievement). I then got another chance to change on Race 8 (which I did, to 'Balanced').

When I got to Race 10 I attempted the crash out (having saved just after completing said Race), so I just ran my car into Oblivion each race until the end of the season - this strategy didn't work so I went back to race 10 and just played on as I was and thought I would try next season (at this point I had been OQ'd by Webber on all races, but won all, so overall I was beating him 4-1).

I then continued this until I got to about race 13/14 (it was just after Monza I think). Again start 24th and finish 1st.

After this race I received the WDC Trophy (so I thought the season was

... going well). Immediately after this on returning to the hub, I get an email from the agent saying the 'the season hasn't been going well for us', and I was asked if we should continue R&D.

I said no, and the achievement popped up. It seems the lack of good starts was considered poor (despite the wins, and being WDC), and the email was prompted.

So, in essence, to get this achievement I would try NEVER setting ANY laps in Q1, Q2 or Q3. Just make sure you beat your teammate sufficiently to be Number 1 Driver.

Apologies for the posts, but I didn't know about the word limit :)
