GLOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
Equip a new pair of gloves from the Podium Pass or Item Shop

Another new feature in F1 2020 is the podium pass and item shop, by simply completing races in any game mode you will earn xp towards seasonal rewards
Each season has a different series name so at the start of the game is series 1 and lasts for approximately 8 weeks
At level 13 you will earn 2500 pit coins which is a new currency that can be used to purchase in game liveries, helmets and more importantly for this trophy/achievement – gloves
These gloves can be equipped in the my team character customisation screen accessed by choosing the corporate menu
Having said that, because this is a seasonal reward for reaching level 13 when series 1 ends, you will return back to level 1 and have to grind out to a similar level or potentially a higher level in series 2 or whichever series is currently taking place in F1 2020 depending on when you go for the Glove At First Sight trophy/achivement
Now just to make this even more difficult, the item shop updates on a daily and weekly basis so there is no set pattern as to when the gloves will appear in any of these inventories
On a side note, there are micro transactions in F1 2020, meaning you can purchase the pit coins rather than earning them, we at Griffins Gaming Guides don not support micro transactions, however, the option is there should you wish
As soon as you have purchased and equipped  your gloves, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

MAXING OUT
Apply all vehicle upgrades from one R&D department

Simply earn research and development points by completing practice programs and apply those points into the departments. There are a total of 4 departments in F1® 2020 and they are 

  • Powertrain
  • Aerodynamics 
  • Durability
  • Chassis

Upgrades take 1-6 weeks to complete and some can fail but can be purchased again for a discount,

It’s also worth noting that some of your R&D trees have team automatic updates and these updates are also required to be completed in order to unlock the maxing out trophy / achievement

Example 1- This will result in no trophy / achievement
The pink upgrade tree (powertrain) is fully upgraded from upgrades that you can buy but you will see one small grey upgrade at the start is an automatic team upgrade so until this upgrade has been implemented by the team your trophy/Achievement will not unlock, here is an example

Example 2- This is how it should look

The blue upgrade tree (aerodynamics) has no team automatic upgrades so once all upgrades have been purchased your trophy/achievement will unlock

Hopefully, armed with that knowledge, you will have a much better idea of the best route to take throughout your upgrade trees
Once have applied all vehicle upgrades from one R&D department your Trophy / Achievement will unlock at the start of the next Grand Prix weekend
