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 :)
