15g tester 2

In a rush?
Complete a Practice Programme session using Quick Practice

Quick practice is a new feature in career mode, to access quick practice you need to start a race weekend and participate in practice 1
Upon your return to the teams race weekend HQ you will again need to interact with your laptop / workstation, rather than choosing go to next session highlight either practice 2 or 3 and select it, now choose quick practice to simulate your practice programme and unlock your Trophy / Achievement

Go easy on them
Bronze

Go easy on them
During an interview, your actions lowered the morale of a Department in your Team

Randomly after a race weekend you will receive press interviews, each question you get asked will give you the opportunity to respond with up to 4 different answers
Your response needs to be negative for example “we need better aero
As long as you reply with any response that sounds like you’re putting your team down rather than praising them will work
This response will then cause the morale of that department to drop at which point your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Showing huge potential
Bronze

15g tester 2

Showing huge potential
Get on the podium

See 1st of many Bronze Image PS for more information

1st of many
Bronze

25g tester 2

1st of many
Get 1st on the podium

This should come naturally but if it doesn’t then start a race weekend and set the AI difficulty to 0 then go out on the track and lap consistency to keep in front and with a win secure your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

World Champion
Gold Image PS

50g tester 2

World Champion
Win the F1 Drivers’ Championship

This can be done in any of the available career modes but I suggest doing this in my team career as other trophies / achievements are associated to this mode
A full season consists of 23 races but you can do shorter 10 / 15 race seasons, by securing a podium on each race and beating your nearest rival you should secure the Drivers’ Championship easily, if you struggle you can drop the AI difficulty level down to make things easier

Constructors Champion
Gold Image PS

50g tester 2

Constructors Champion
Win the F1 Constructors Championship

Very similar to the Drivers’ Championship but this is for the team so again it’s best done in my team career but this time your team has to secure enough points to beat the opponents over the course of the season
Again should you struggle drop true AI difficulty to make it easier for your team to maximise your points and with the Constructors Championship secure your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

A weekend to remember
Silver Image PS

30g tester 2

A weekend to remember
Set the fastest lap in all 3 Practice sessions, get pole and win the GP

Choose quick race from the main menu ensuring the race is set to long weekend which gives you access to every session in a given race weekend
Set the AI to 1 (very easy) then start the race weekend, you need to set the fastest time in all 3 practice sessions, take pole position then go on to win the final
Once you have successfully completed everything mentioned, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

R&D Lover
Bronze

15g tester 2

R&D Lover
Develop a component in every R&D Department

This is best done in the my team career mode and in total you have 4 separate trees to develop and they are as follows 

  • Reliability
  • Aero
  • Chassis
  • Power train
 

To develop parts you firstly need to earn enough points which is simply obtained by completing practice programmes
Now buy one development part from each skill tree then advance to the next weekend, as long as each part is developed successfully your Trophy / Achievement will then unlock

Positive vibes
Silver Image PS

15g tester 2

Positive vibes
Have more than one Department in a positive morale status

After a race weekend you can receive a press interview where you can answer questions from the press that can affect the morale of your R&D department

Tracked Addiction
Bronze

20g tester 2

Tracked Addiction
Complete 50 hours of total track time

50 hours of track time might seem a lot but with all other trophies requiring you to play multiple races the time will rack up, should you complete all other aspects of the game and still require this trophy / achievement, set up a quick race and leave the car idle on the track until the 50 hours has passed

Complete a 2nd season of My Team/Driver Career/Two Player Career

When you start a new career you can choose the season length which can be a full season of 23 races or a short season of just 10, I recommend you choose the full 23 race calendar to aid your progress towards other trophies in F1 2021 but running a short 10 race season will make it unlock quicker so choose the season length you’d prefer and complete it to unlock your Trophy / Achievement

Monaco is the crown jewel of an F1 season, a 50% race will see you lap the circuit 39 times so set up a quick race with 50% race distance and Monaco as the circuit, choose any driver you wish and start the event

This can be done using any circuit, car and driver combination you wish, I personally recommend doing this at the Italian Grand Oryx circuit of Monza if you’re not used to manual gears as Monza is a fast circuit with minimal corners

Bronze

30g tester 2

Clean Me
Complete 10 Clean Online races (excluding career)

Squeaky clean from F1 2020 returns so it’s worth making it clear that this will be a difficult trophy / achievement to unlock due to the fact you are playing online, you need to make sure you don’t hit any other players or cut any corners or exceed track limits for it to count as a clean race, so the best thing you can do is take your time and avoid all other players

Hello dude
Photo mode doesn’t have a dedicated capture button instead use your consoles capture mode to take a picture 🥇

The trophy popped for me when I opened photo mode on the last track required, seems you just have to open photo mode on those tracks as can’t imagine it knows when you take a screenshot.
