Guide By: TheFlyingToaster/ Lukey52
There are 39 Trophies that can be earned in this title.
Season 2 - Now that you are in one of the big teams (Ferrari, Red Bull, or McLaren) this will be your hard season, going for the "Drivers' World Champion (Hard)" trophy. Before going into the first practice session of the season in Australia, make sure the difficulty is set to hard. If you want the easiest time, make sure to put the race distance at 3 laps as well. See the trophy in the guide for more information. You should also be trying for the "Test Driver" trophy, see the guide for more information.
Season 3-5 - This most likely won't be needed, but as mentioned at the beginning, your career lasts for 5 seasons before you have to start a new one so you have time to clean up any trophies that you may have missed from the previous seasons.
It's completely possible that you earned a large number of these while working on your career.
Wins - This section is very simple. Thankfully, f1 2011 lets you earn the trophies with a boosting partner in a private session with no AI drivers to hassle you. In fact, it even lets you earn other trophies that are not online specific in this mode. This means if you are having difficulty with trophies, such as Precision Driving, these can be earned at the same time. You'll need to trade a total of 70 wins to unlock all online win related trophies. They are as follows:
[PS3T Would Like to Thank TheFlyingToaster and Lukey52 for this Roadmap]
|Congratulations. You've completed F1 2011™||(1)|
Congrats on your Platinum!
|You have completed your first Career Race|
All you have to do is start the career mode. Create a driver, sign for a team, get to the race, and complete it. It doesn't matter how long the race is, or where you finish, you just need to complete it and you'll get this.
|You have taken the first Pole Position of your Career|
To get a pole position, you need to end the qualifying session with the fastest time, which will mean you start the Race in 1st. If you are doing a long race weekend, qualifying will be broken up into 3 sessions. You need to be in the top 17 in the first session to get through to the second, the top 10 in the second session to get through to the 3rd and final session, where the actual grid lineup is decided. So you will need to be in first place at the end of it. If you are doing a short race weekend then qualifying will just be one 20 minute session that decides everything, so you just need to end this in 1st place and you'll get the trophy. This is only for career mode.
|Just the Beginning|
|You have taken your first Career victory|
Simply win your first race, this will come easily when going for the world championships so it isn't a trophy you need to give much thought. If playing on the lower difficulties you should be able to get it pretty early on in your first season. Just win a race in your career and you'll get the trophy.
|You set the fastest penalty-free lap of the Race in any game mode|
You shouldn't have to worry about this much. If you are winning races, like you should be doing, then this will likely come along with those victories. You just need to finish a race with the fastest lap (which is displayed on the results screen at the end of the race) and you'll get this trophy. You don't have to win the race, but chances are you will anyway. Penalty-free simply refers to cutting corners/causing collisions etc, anything that would invalidate your lap. Penalties show up on the screen as a black and white flag.
|You set the fastest lap in every session of a Long Race Weekend in any mode|
I did this in career mode, but you can set up a custom GP for it instead if you want. You just need to make sure you set it to "Long Race Weekend" when setting it up, or at the start of the race weekend in career. This means you'll have to play through 7 sessions (3 practice, 3 qualifying & the race) and end up with the fastest time in each session. It makes it easier if you put the difficulty down, obviously, just make sure you have a fast enough time then either skip to the next session if you are confident or you can sit in the garage and fast forward, watching the other times to make sure they don't beat you. you can restart the sessions at any time in the pause menu.
|Push the Button|
|You cleanly overtook an opponent while KERS was activated|
KERS is basically a boost button. It gives you extra horse power for a short period of your choosing each lap. For this trophy you need to overtake another driver in a race while using KERS. It shouldn't cause you any difficulty. If you are playing on an easier difficulty then just stick behind someone until a straight, then use slipstream and KERS to get by them easily. To activate KERS you'll need to make sure you have charge left (the little red battery on the bottom right of the screen) then hit ( if using a wheel). Your charge refills completely every time you cross the start/finish line.
|You cleanly overtook an opponent while the DRS was activated|
DRS is a system that opens up part of your rear wing and reduces the drag allowing you to go faster at the cost of downforce/cornering grip, so it's best saved for the straights. In practice and qualifying, it is available at all times but in the actual race (where you need to overtake someone for this trophy) It's only available in the preset DRS zone(s) on each track. It also won't be available in the rain or for the first 2 laps of the race. To use DRS, you need to be within a second of the car in front at the DRS detection zone. You can then use it when it shows up green on the HUD. It will be on one or more of the tracks main straight sections and you will see the DRS signs at the side of the track as you go round, showing you where you will be able to use it. For this trophy, just stick right behind someone until you can use your DRS and pass them while it's activated. Don't forget that you'll need to start a race that is 3 laps or longer if you want DRS.
|You've covered at least 500 Practice miles / 805 kilometres in your Career||(6)|
A good opportunity to get this is in your hard season as all the practice you do will help you in qualifying and the races to make winning the championship easier. Always do R&D objectives in practice when you see them. They will add to this total and they get you upgrades for your car throughout the season which you don't want to miss out on. Be aware though, if you need a lot of practice on a track and are restarting the practice session for that race before it's ended, then this won't count towards the overall total.
|Co-op Drivers' World Champion|
|You won the Drivers' World Championship in a Co-op season||(1)|
For this, you'll need to team up with someone and play through a co-op season. You need to win the Drivers' World Championship for this trophy. You and your partner can't win in the same season so it's likely you will need to do it twice. Doing offline co-op championships will not get you the co-op trophies. Co-op is a minimum of 3 lap races and short race weekends. You can skip qualifying and practice though, if both players pause and vote to skip. You will both start last, but 3 laps against the AI on easy, especially with their bad starts, should be enough to get to the front. It also doesn't need to be done in one go, it will save and you can return to it with your same partner at another time.
|They're on Which Buttons?|
|You won a Race without activating KERS or the DRS once|
Easiest done from poll as you don't really need to worry about anything. Just don't press the KERS button at all and you don't have to worry about DRS since there are no cars in front of you. Put the difficulty down if you are struggling.
|Do it Yourself|
|You won a Race in any mode using manual gears||(2)|
If you play with manual gears normally then this trophy should be a breeze and you'll get it the first race you win. If you are one of the many who play using automatic it will be a little bit more complicated. To make this trophy easy, from the main menu select Grand Prix. Now take a fast car like Red Bull. Doesn't matter if you are Vettel or Webber for this. Now, in the settings make sure you do race only, set the distance to 1 lap, weather to clear (for ease) and go into the difficulty level. Change the gearbox to manual sequential and keep all the other settings on the default easy stuff. Now for the track select Monza which has very few corners making it easier.
|On the Bounce|
|You have beaten Alberto Ascari's record of 9 successive Career victories||(10)|
I did this on my first season with the difficulty put down a bit, but you can wait until you are in one of the big teams if you want. Basically you need to win 10 races in a row, you should be trying to win every race anyway, I'd recommend doing this in your first season while trying to get a drive for one of the big teams if you can, then you don't have to worry about it when playing on hard if there is a track you really don't like. If it comes to it, you have a total of 5 seasons in your career to get this and when hard is out of the way, you can do it on any difficulty.
|Drivers' World Champion|
|You have won the Drivers' World Championship in Career||(3)|
Easy enough, just finish the season with more points than any other driver. You can get this in your first season easily enough on low difficulty, or even on hard when you are going for the "Drivers' World Champion (Hard)" trophy when you should be on one of the big teams, it's up to you. The trophy pops once you are a mathematical certainty for the title.
|Constructors' World Champion|
|You have won the Constructors' World Championship in Career||(1)|
This one is a little harder to get in your first season since you will have a pretty poor team mate but it's not impossible. You will need to pretty much win every race. If you don't get it in your first season, don't worry about it. It will be a lot easier once you get into one of the top teams with another competitive driver, most people will be doing at least 2 seasons anyway so you have more than one chance at this. The trophy pops once you are a mathematical certainty for the title.
|You completed a Race without colliding with another car or object|
Easier when doing a shorter race distance and when starting from pole since you don't have to worry about how crowded it can get at the start, as long as you get away cleanly and run off into the distance this shouldn't be a problem.
|Drivers' World Champion (Hard)|
|You have won the Drivers' World Championship in Career on Hard or Expert Difficulty||(6)|
This will be easier if you wait until at least your second season. If you beat a rival from one of the top teams in season 1, you should get to drive in his team and put yourself in a good position to get this trophy. At the first session of the season, make sure the difficulty is set to Hard and don't change it throughout the season. The other settings are up to you, but putting the race distance at 3 laps certainly makes things a lot easier, but again, it's up to you.
|You lapped at least 6 other cars during a Race in any game mode|
You need to gain a lap on the back 6 cars in the race to get this trophy. This just means you need to get around the track and catch up to the back of the pack during the race, once you get past the person in 19th you will get the trophy during the race. This is easiest in one of the top cars on easy in a race of at least 10% but you can combine it with some other trophies like Slap on the Wrist and Down to the Wire in a slightly longer race to save yourself some time overall, it also gives you more time to lap the 6 cars should you need it.
|Have You Considered DiRT3?|
|You performed a drift of 10 metres or more||(4)|
You are likely to get this without trying through the course of the game. If you are struggling, then set up a race on any track using the Grand Prix option from the main menu. Make sure to set the weather to heavy rain and start weaving until you lose the back end. Put your foot down rather than brake and you'll drift the 10 metres needed.
|You have won a Race at each of the 19 circuits in any game mode|
Below is a checklist that you can keep track of which circuits you've had a victory on.
|You won a Race without any Driver Assists enabled in any game mode||(6)|
This is quite a tough trophy. When they say no driver assists, they really mean it, and if you aren't used to playing without assists then you are probably in for a bit of a shock. Not only do you lose ABS, traction control, and brake assist, but you'll have to turn off the racing line and use manual gears. What I found that worked well was setting up a 1 lap Grand Prix at Monaco using Red Bull. Now, you'll need to get away well and take 1st at the first corner or as you climb. Once you managed this you can take things slowly and back the pack up without letting anyone pass. As soon as you come out of the tunnel and start braking, drop down gears and slightly cut the corner. Now as you get to the next left hander, get into 4th gear. From here, you can just stick in this gear and finish the lap off keeping first. Don't forget that if you spin or get overtaken you can use the replay feature to reset yourself to a couple of seconds earlier. Just hit , go to instant replay, find the part you want to start from and hit . Although Monaco might seem like a strange choice, the compact nature with no run off means that with damage off you can take glancing blows from the walls to keep you going without ruining your chances.
|You won a Race after Qualifying in Pole Position in any game mode|
You will likely get this in career if you are following the road map. This is basically a combination of the Pole Position and Just the beginning trophies, although this one can be done in any mode. You need to qualify in 1st and go on to win the race. If you end up finishing off the career portion without getting this or just want it quicker you can head to GP mode and do a quick race weekend with Qualifying and a 1 lap race on easy to get this.
|Keep Your Friends Close|
|You have completed a full Co-op season||(7)|
For this, you'll need to team up with someone and play through a co-op season. You may end up doing 2 so that you and your partner can get the "Co-op Drivers' World Champion" trophy but this one will pop after your first co-op season no matter how well you do. Doing offline co-op championships will not get you the co-op trophies. Co-op is a minimum of 3 lap races and short race weekends. You can skip qualifying and practice if both players pause and vote to skip. You will both start last but 3 laps against the AI on easy, especially with their bad starts, should be enough to get to the front. It also doesn't need to be done in one go, it will save and you can return to it with your same partner at another time.
|You have set a time in all of the Time Attack scenarios|
From the main menu, go to proving grounds and then Time Attack. Here you will find 6 preset scenarios with a specific track, car, and weather condition. There are Gold, Silver, and Bronze times but they are irrelevant as far as the trophy is concerned, you just need to set any sort of time on all 6 and you will get your trophy.
|You have performed a Pit-stop during a Safety Car period||(5)|
Start a race in Grand Prix mode. Put the laps up to at least 20%. Make sure to select Monaco as the track. You'll also have to make sure you put damage on and have the safety car enabled. Now you have two choices. You either wait for someone to have an accident and cause the safety car to come out so you can pit (Having heavy rain on makes this a lot more likely), or you can take matters into your own hands. At turn 5 (the one before the tracks tight hairpin) is an ideal opportunity to cause a pile up. From the start of the race, grab first if you can, then at that corner, hug the right wall going down the hill and park your car sideways across the track so nobody can get past you. Just sit here as the rest of the field gets blocked and as soon as you see "SC" pop on the screen, either drive away, or pause>reset to track. Do a lap and pit at the end of it. As soon as you come in you'll get the trophy.
|You have completed 5 successive laps within a quarter of a second of each other||(1)|
This one is actually a lot easier than it sounds. Go to time trial mode and pick a track you like, ideally one you are pretty comfortable driving around and not making errors. If it's your first time on this track in time trial mode, then that makes things a little easier. For your first lap just drive round at a pace you find easy enough and don't push too hard, don't use DRS or KERS either and even take it easy at the last few corners to give yourself more room for error. This will be your new personal best ghost. What you want to do now is follow it around the track for the next 4 laps keeping close to it and stick just behind it through the last few corners and over the line. Doing this I managed to get laps 2-5 within 0.1s of the first lap. If you make a mistake then feel free to use DRS and KERS on the subsequent laps in order to catch up to your ghost.
|Keeping it Clean|
|You completed an Online Race without making contact with an opponent's car||(2)|
You will earn this while going for 10 Online and 35 Online. Just make sure that in the settings you have selected damage on and collisions on. As you don't need to win, when it's your partners turn to win, simply cruise behind him and have a clean race to earn this.
|Down to the Wire|
|You took the lead on the final lap of a 20%+ distance Race and won|
This is one that can be combined with at least a couple other trophies, such as "Blue Flag" & "Slap on the Wrist" to save yourself some time. For this specific trophy you just need set the distance of any race to 20% and take 1st place on the last lap of the race before going on to win. I'd set the AI difficulty to the easiest so as long as you are close behind the car in first for the last lap, you should have plenty of chance to overtake.
|On the Podium|
|You have finished a Career Race in the top three|
Just finish in the top 3 in a career race. This should come fairly quickly and you'll get it while going for wins and the championships so you really don't need to think about it. If your first podium is 1st place you'll earn this trophy at the same time as Just the Beginning.
|You have spent a total of 10 minutes slipstreaming your opponents in any game mode|
Slipstreaming refers to when you place your car directly behind a car in front; this allows you to go through the air faster to gain an advantage and overtake the car in font. Every time you do this, you will add to the overall total for this trophy. This is another one where, unfortunately, there isn't anywhere to track this so it's just a matter of keeping at it every time you get an opportunity. Having said that, in the course of the other trophies, in particular the career related ones, it's pretty much impossible to miss this unless you are constantly starting from pole and going on to win. If you don't earn it then set up a 20% GP on a track like Monza and take a Red Bull and stick behind one of the slower teams cars until the trophy pops.
|Is Jenson going to pass or not?|
|You won the Turkish Grand Prix driving as Lewis Hamilton||(4)|
To earn this, select Grand Prix from the main menu . Now take Lewis Hamilton's Mclaren. Now in the settings, make sure you do race only, set the distance to 1 lap, weather to clear (for ease), and choose the easy difficulty. On the next screen, choose the Turkish GP in Istanbul. You'll start around 5th or 6th so just go at it. If you go left on the first corner you can take first there. Now hold off the cars till the end of the lap and you'll earn this.
|With Damage on Full you made contact with the wall at Monaco and won the Race|
Another straightforward trophy. Select Grand Prix from the main menu. Choose a fast car like Red Bull. Make sure that in the difficulty settings you turn on full mechanical damage (not just cosmetic). Now select Monaco and do a 1 lap race. You should be able to push your way to first on the first corner. Be sure to hit the wall at some point during the lap. I personally took off my front wing and unlocked the trophy, but I would imagine that hitting the wall with enough force will be enough. It doesn't matter what part of the track you do this. Alternatively if you have two controllers (or a friend online) you can set up a 1 lap race on Monaco and do it without any AI hassle. - Thanks funkyweed for the tip -
|You took the lead on lap 1, in heavy rain, after starting in 5th or lower||(3)|
Start up a race through the Grand Prix option on the main menu. Choose a fast car such as Red Bull. In the options, change the weather to heavy rain. Choose to race on Monza. Now start the race (you might start 4th, 5th or 6th) so if you start 4th back out to the main menu and try again. Otherwise, get to the first chicane and you'll easily get pass everyone in front of you. Provided you don't then lose the position as you exit, you'll earn the trophy before the race even finishes.
|It's the Driver not the Car|
|You have won the Drivers' World Championship with two different teams in Career or Co-op|
If you are following the road map then you will be winning the Drivers' World Championship in your first season before moving to one of the big teams to win it again in season 2 on hard which will get you this trophy. If you don't want to do it that way, you have another chance in co-op as long as you pick a different team to the one you won it with in career. Failing that, you will have to do another career or co-op season so it's best to plan ahead with this one. You won't have to worry about it if you're following the road map.
|You won the Constructors' World Championship in a Co-op Championship|
For this, you'll need to team up with someone and play through a co-op season. You and your partner will be on the same team and as a result you will both want to consistently do well so that you take the Constructors' title. If you miss out in your first season then you will probably get another chance if you are doing a 2nd so that both you and your partner can get the "Co-op Drivers' World Champion" trophy. Doing offline co-op championships will not get you the co-op trophies.
|You scored points at every round of a Career or Co-op season|
The point scoring positions in a race are 1st to 10th. So for this trophy you need to finish every race of a career season in the top 10. You may as well get this out of the way in your first season so you don't have to think about it again. If you are following the road map, you'll want to be winning everything in your first season anyway. If you don't get it, you will have plenty of opportunities to do so since you can get this in career mode or co-op mode. Don't forget that if you seriously mess up a race, get disqualified, or the like you can restart the race without any penalties to ensure you don't have to move past a race until you get some points.
|You have won 10 Online Races|
Earned while going for "35 Online".
|You have won 35 Online Races|
This can easily be done with a boosting partner. Set up a Grand Prix and choose, Canada, Italy, or whichever track you both prefer. Pick it 20 times. Make sure to change the laps to 1 and if you don't want rain, disable that as well. Now ensure you set up a private game. Invite your partner and start the race with just the two of you. You won't have any AI to hassle you either. It is possible to earn a large number of trophies while boosting together such as Precision Driving, Car Control, etc. After 10 races you'll earn 10 Online. During your first race, provided you don't hit anyone you will also earn Keeping it Clean. Note that if you want, your friend can join the race then just go idle. They will get disqualified so you don't have to wait out the timer and it still counts towards the race. You will have to wait for the timer countdowns during the loading sequences.
|Slap on the Wrist|
|You were awarded a Drive-through Penalty and still went on to win the Race||(1)|
To get a drive-through penalty, you will want to start cutting corners. This will result in several warnings before you are given an actual penalty. For this trophy, you need to get one, serve it, and go on to win the race. It's shouldn't cause you much trouble on the lower difficulties. You can probably do it in a 3 lap race, but 10% gives you more room for error, more time to get and serve the penalty while making sure you are still in first. You can also combine this with some other trophies in a longer race like "Blue Flag" and "Down to the Wire" to save yourself some time and make the trophy a bit easier.
