 The Heat is On (10 points)
You have set a valid lap time in One-Shot Qualifying.

You basically have one chance at setting a lap time and you must not cut corners, you must stay on the track.

You do not need pole position for this achievement just to finish the lap. You can use flashback if you make a mistake.

 
 It Only Takes One Shot (15 points)
You have taken pole position in One-Shot Qualifying.
 

When you play a season challenge, once you have selected your rival you will be taken to the qualification for the Grand Prix, and this will be "one Shot Qualifying".

You basically have one chance at setting a lap time and you must not cut corners, you must stay on the track.

You need pole position for this achievement, meaning you are the fastest car and to help you out you will see a ghost lap of the leading car, so if you beat the ghost you will get Pole Position.

You are able to use flashbacks if you need to and you can change the AI difficulty in race setting within the menus.

 
 FORMULA ONE Driver (35 points)
You have completed your first 100% race in Career or Grand Prix.
 

You can get this in Career on a single Grand Prix race.

Within Career mode there is a tab for settings, click on this and then onto race setting and there is a slider bar to set race distance move this all the way to the right untill it says 100%.

In Grand Prix Mode again set the race distance to 100% and choose which track to race on.

Once you have qualified start the race but beware this will take the best part of 1 hour 45 mins to complete.

This does not have to be done in one sitting, you can use a mid session save and it does not effect the achievement, and you will also unlock "My Saviour" if you have not already done so.


You must finish the race DSQ or Crashing does not work.

 
 You Hit Nothing! (15 points)
You have completed a Career race without colliding with another car or object.
 

This is easiet done on a short 25% race distance, it helps to qualify on Pole Position and get a good start, you should not even see another car for the whole race and as long as you do not hit any barriers or signage you will get the achievement at the end of the race.

USA is a good track for this as there are few barriers.

 
 Podium Finish (20 points)
You finished a race in the top three in Career or Season Challenge.
 

This will come within your first few races and can be done on any difficulty level, just finish the race 1st, 2nd, or 3rd.

 
 Who Needs Assists? (15 points)
You won a race with all driver assists disabled.
 

The easiest way to get this is to go into multiplayer and split screen mode, in the settings menu turn all driver assists off.

In race settings menu you will need AI to be turned off so that it is just you and your second controller racing.

You will need to beat the second controller to get the achievement.

If you are playing on you own with 2 controllers once you have finished you will need to complete on lap on the second controller to finish the race.

 
 Eyes of the Beholder (20 points)
You have completed 10 races using only the cockpit camera.
 

Cockpit view can be accessed via the race settings screen or just before the start of the race you can cycle through the views using the until you come the cockpit view, this is the one that looks most like you are driving the car.

Use this view for 10 complete races.

 
 Pole Position (15 points)

 Split Mode Squad (10 points)
You have completed three races in Split Screen.
 

This needs to be done with a second controller, from the start screen go to multiplayer, then split screen and race 3 times against a friend or yourself.

If you are racing by yourself once you have finished the race you will need to complete one lap with the second contoller to end the race, or you can crash into a barrier with full damage settings on.

 
 Achiever (20 points)
You passed all of your objectives over a race weekend in Season Challenge.
 

When you start a race in season challenge you will be given a position that your team expect you to finish in for qualifying and the same for the race itself.

Also you will have your rival to beat, You must match or exceed these expectations on all parts of the weekend for the achievement.

 
 Nemesis (15 points)
You have beaten your first rival in Season Challenge.
 

When you start a season challenge for the first time you have to select a rival before you are allowed to race.

The season challenge is a best of three matchup against the rival you select and is determined by your finishing place in the race only.

If you beat your rival in the first 2 races that is that rival beaten.

 
 Unrivaled (20 points)
You have beaten four rivals in one season in Season Challenge.
 

You will need to beat each rival by 2 races to nil and keep selecting new rivals, and beating these by 2 races to nil as well, if you do not win 2 races to nil then you will run out of races to select new rivals.

 
 Family Ties (15 points)
You stayed with the same team through the whole season in Season Challenge.
 

This can be done at the same time as "Unrivaled", when you beat one of your rivals you will need to reject the contract offer, and select another rival.

Stay with your staring team for all 10 races.

You can also get this achievement by retiring from every qualification and race, your rivals will win every head to head but you can finish the season in 30 minutes.

 
 Back to the Beginning (10 points)
You returned to your starting team in Season Challenge.
 

You must return to the team you started the season racing for, so if you started with Ferrari you must race against for example Vettel and win then when you select a new rival choose Alonso or Massa as your new rival, beat either of these and acept the contract offer from Ferrari.

 
 Trading Places (20 points)
You raced for five different teams in Season Challenge in a single season.
 

This can be done at the same time as "Unrivaled", when you beat one of your rivals you will need to acept the contract offer, and select another rival.

Move team after each lot of 2 races. For this achievement you will need to beat your rival by 2 races to nil very time to have enough races to drive for 5 teams.

You also have to race for 5 different teams and cannot go back to one you have previously been with.

 
 Winning! (30 points)
You have won the Drivers' Championship in Season Challenge.
 

This is for finishing top of the standing after all 10 races have been completed.

If you are struggling the try starting on Easy difficulty.

 
 Hardcore Champion (30 points)
You have won the Drivers' Championship in Season Challenge on hard difficulty.
 

This is not as difficult as it first appears and is easier if you get your tactics right during the whole season.

You have to remember if you take on a rival and win he will miss 2 races when you are driving his car, so even if he has a slight lead in the championship you have 2 free races to make points back on him.

In my season I started with Caterham and choose Paul Diresta as my first rival, beat him and chose Felipa Massa as my second, beat him and chose Sebastian Vettel as my third, beat him and chose Lewis Hamilton as my fourth, I beat him and the achievement popped although there were still 2 races remaining no one could catch me.

I chose Vettel and Hamilton because at the time they were closet to me in the
standings, yours will be different and you should choose carefully.

Also another point on Season Challenge is don’t be afraid to push and shove other cars, it seems to be easier getting away with contact, and flags don’t seem to be as strict for some reason, blocking a lot seems to be fine if you can manage to get yourself up near the front of the field.

If you are being over taken it will generally be people at the top of points, so another trick is at the last second block them and they will have to brake hard and this may force them to drop back a few places allowing you to get more points than them, also another tip if you are in top 3 in the race brake hard on last corner and block as much as you can so the others all bunch up letting the slower drivers potentially past them.

If you get caught for any contact or blocking then remember to use your flashbacks.

 
 This Time Next Year... (5 points)
You elected to end R&D on the current seasons car in Career.
 

To be given the chance to end R & D early you will need to be number one driver which means you will not get this untill season number 2, If you have out performed your team mate during season 1 you will be given the number 1 driver title, this will be in season 2 and can be as quick as you like.

You should only need you to win 1 race, you want to qualify as well as you can and go for the win in the first race of the season, at least finish in the top three. This way you team mate will never catch you in the best of 5 team mate challenge. From race 2, you can just keep retiring at the start if you wish and then as the number 1 Driver you will make all the decisions on R & D Testing, you should get 2 emails about the direction to take and then an email around Singapore to end R & D or carry on, End it for the achievement.

 
 Rule the Roost (20 points)
You set the fastest lap time in every session of a long race weekend in Career.
 

To get a long weekend in career mode you have to select it in the race setting and then you will need to be the fastest car in Practice, Qualifying 1, Qualifying 2, Qualifying 3, and Fastest lap of the race.

I am not sure if you need to win the race, I did and if you set the fastest times in all of those sessions then you should be able to win anyway.

In Practice and qualifying rather than skip to the next session it is best to just accelerate tim by pressing .

 
 Back to Front (20 points)
You qualified last, but finished first in Career.
 

You can either take part in qualifying or skip straight into the race and start in 22nd position, you must race your way to the front and win the race, on easy difficulty this is staright forward and you have around 15 laps in most races to do it in.

 
 The World is your Oyster (10 points)
You moved to another team mid-season in Career.
 

Depending on how you are doing in your season you should at some point see the far left tab "contract offers" light up with a 1, this needs to be accepted and it also needs to be an offer to drive for the new team straight away.

I did not want to move from my team, but after race 10 and having won every race i was ofered a drive at Ferrari so i created a backup save on a memory stick and accepted the offer, got the achievement and reloaded my old save, so that i could continue my season.

This can be done in one season using the method from last year which is this:

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.
