|CONGRATULATIONS ON COMPLETING F1 2011|
After getting all the other trophies you will unlock the Platinum.
|MADE THE CUT (Bronze)|
|REACH Q3 IN QUALIFYING|
Qualifying is divided into three sessions. In the first session, Q1, you need to finish at least in the Top 17 by the end of the of the session to advance to Q2. If you finish with one of the Top 10 times in Q2 you will advance to Q3 and unlock this trophy. You will unlock this trophy before unlocking POLE POSITION.
|FLYING LAP (Bronze)|
|ACHIEVE YOUR FIRST TIME TRIAL MEDAL|
When running a time trial, a time to beat will be displayed in the top left hand corner of the screen. There are three times to beat for the Bronze, Silver and Gold Medals on each circuit. The first time you beat a Bronze time you will unlock this trophy and you will do so as you work towards unlocking TIMED TO PERFECTION.
|SPEED DEMON (Bronze)|
|DRIVE FASTER THAN 230MPH (370KM/H)|
You will unlock this trophy the first time you drive down a long straight, such as at the Yas Marina Circuit. If you have not unlocked it, tune your car's gearing towards more speed than acceleration. Also, remember to use DRS and KERS on the longest straight.
|COMPLETE A CHALLENGE WITH A C RANK OR ABOVE|
On each challenge you can receive a grade as low as an "E" to an "A 3 stars". The first time you receive a "C" ranking this will unlock. You will get it as you work towards CHAMPION.
|TOE TO TOE (Bronze)|
|WIN A HEAD TO HEAD CHALLENGE|
There are 10 levels of challenges. To advance from the first level you must complete three of the five challenges with a "C" grade or better. This will unlock a final challenge that you must also score a "C" grade or better if you wish to advance to the next level. The final challenge of the 2nd level is a head to head race with another driver. You will get this trophy as you work towards CHAMPION.
|TUNED TO PERFECTION (Bronze)|
|TAKE POLE POSITION IN QUALIFYING WITH A TUNED VEHICLE|
Before qualifying, simply make any adjustment in the "Tuning" section of the menu. The trophy will then pop after Q3 when you win the Pole Position.
|APRIL SHOWER (Bronze)|
|WIN A RACE IN THE WET|
It seems that there are only certain tracks that will have rainy weather such as Sao Paulo, Silverstone, and Spa. Choose one of these tracks under "Quick Race". Then go to "Race Settings" and select "Weather" to be "On". Simply win the race and the trophy will unlock. If you have not unlocked this trophy, you will do so when you unlock Stirling Performance.
|MANUAL MASTER (Bronze)|
|FINISH A RACE USING ONLY MANUAL GEARS|
Please refer to Unplugged for details on this trophy. You will unlock this trophy at the same time as Unplugged.
|GET NOTICED (Bronze)|
|ACHIEVE THE FASTEST LAP IN A GRAND PRIX|
As long as you have driven the fastest lap during a race, you will unlock this trophy. You will surely unlock it during the first race of your first season.
|FINISH A RACE WITH ALL DRIVING AIDS TURNED OFF|
Please refer to Unplugged for details on this trophy. You will unlock this trophy at the same time as Unplugged.
|GRAND PRIX WIN (Bronze)|
|WIN YOUR FIRST GRAND PRIX|
You will unlock the trophy the first time you win during your career.
|POLE POSITION (Bronze)|
|ACHIEVE POLE POSITION|
Please refer to Leader of the Pack. You will unlock this trophy as you work towards it.
|STIRLING PERFORMANCE (Silver)|
|LAP EVERY CAR IN A RACE IN WET CONDITIONS|
Go to Quick Race in the Menu. Select a track such as Sao Paulo, Silverstone, or Spa that allows rain to occur. In "Race Settings" set "Weather" to "On". You will need to set the "Race Length" to at least 10% if not more in order to have enough time to lap every car, even on easy. Please note that this trophy will not unlock after you lap every car. Rather, it will unlock after you complete the race. You will unlock April Shower when you unlock this trophy. I chose to run my 100% length race at the same time and also unlocked Endurance.
|COMPLETE A 100% DISTANCE RACE|
Set up a Quick Race from the Main Menu. In Race Settings set Race Length to 100%. Make sure that your Vita's battery is fully charged or you are using AC power as the race will roughly take 1 1/2 hours to complete.
|GRADE A PERFORMANCE (Bronze)|
|EARN AN A RANK IN CHALLENGE MODE|
While in Challenge Mode, complete any of the Challenges with an A-1 Star rank or better to unlock this trophy.
|LEARNING TO FLY (Silver)|
|POST A FLYING LAP TO WIN A TIME TRIAL MEDAL WITH ALL DRIVING AIDS DISABLED|
This trophy is missable.
|WIN A RACE WITH ALL DRIVING AIDS DISABLED|
Select Grand Prix from the Main Menu. Choose Monte Carlo as the circuit. Proceed from Q1 through Q3 with all driving aids ON and make sure you secure pole position. BEFORE you quit out of Q3 (while you are still on the track), and AFTER you are sure you will win pole position, switch all Driving Aids to OFF and switch to Manual gears. You will not be able to do so when the race starts. The A.I is so slow at Monte Carlo that you should not have any problem winning from pole position even if you are not used to Manual controls. Thanks to Lightsp33d1987 for the tip. You will also unlock Manual Master and Unassisted if you have not done so already.
|BANGER RACING (Silver)|
|REPAIR DAMAGE TO YOUR CAR IN THE PITS AND GO ON TO WIN THE RACE|
Select Quick Race from the Main Menu and choose Monte Carlo as the Circuit. In Race Settings choose Damage to be ON. A 3 Lap race should be sufficient. From 24th drive into the lead as quickly as you can, which will be simple on Easy difficulty. If you have Penalties Off you can cut the corners as well. On your way you may have a collision which will cause damage to your car. On your HUD, the area of your car will turn yellow or orange if it has been damaged and your radio will inform you as well. On one of the laps pit for a repair. This will only take a couple of seconds and you should have plenty of time to still go on an win the race. If you follow this method you will unlock High Roller at the same time.
|HIGH ROLLER (Silver)|
|WIN THE MONTE CARLO GRAND PRIX WITH VEHICLE DAMAGE ENABLED|
Please refer to Banger Racing on instructions on how to unlock this trophy.
|COMPLETE A LAP OF MONZA WITH AN AVERAGE SPEED GREATER THAN 150MPH (241 KM/H)|
You will easily unlock this trophy in your pursuit of Timed To Perfection if not before. I unlocked it during my first race at Monza.
|THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME (Silver)|
|WIN EIGHT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS|
This is a very easy trophy but easily the most time-consuming trophy in the game. Expect to spend at least 10 hours unlocking it. In your first season you should qualify for each race and win the pole position in order to unlock Leader Of The Pack and Must Dash. After unlocking those trophies there is no more reason to qualify. Just skip to the race in Seasons 2-8. On Easy difficulty you will be able to jump from 24th to 1st in the first lap or so. Unfortunately there is no way to skip or forfeit races after you have built up an insurmountable lead in the Championship, so you will have to complete each race. You can win eight championships in the single season Championship mode or the multi-season Career mode.
|CLEAN SWEEP (Silver)|
|WIN EVERY GRAND PRIX|
Simply win on every circuit. This does not have to be accomplished in one year, and will surely be accomplished during your Career if not by the end of the first year.
|LEADER OF THE PACK (Silver)|
|ACHIEVE POLE ON EVERY CIRCUIT|
During the first year of your career, make sure to win the pole position during each Grand Prix to get this trophy and Must Dash out of the way. Qualifying is divided into three sessions. In the first session, Q1, finish at least in the Top 17 by the end of the of the session to advance to Q2. If you finish with one of the Top 10 times in Q2 you will advance to Q3. By the end of Q3 you must have the quickest time in order to achieve Pole Position. This will be very simple on Easy difficulty. To make sure that you will receive the Pole Position, check your time in relation to the other drivers' times at the end of each session. After you complete a lap you are satisfied with, head back to the garage and select Advance Time. If somehow someone would beat your time, go back out on to the track to set a better lap.
|GO THE DISTANCE (Silver)|
|DRIVE 1000 MILES (1610KM)|
You will easily unlock this trophy as you work towards the Platinum trophy.
|DRIVING LEGEND (Gold)|
|BEAT THE REAL WORLD LAP RECORD ON ANY CIRCUIT|
You will easily unlock this trophy as you work towards TIMED TO PERFECTION if not before. I unlocked it before I even started the Time Trials during a race in Sao Paulo.
|TIMED TO PERFECTION (Gold)|
|ACHIEVE ALL GOLD TIME TRIAL TROPHIES|
This is easily the most difficult trophy in the game. With that being said it is also a fairly bizarre trophy. You can achieve a Gold Medal time even if you drive off course on roughly 1/3 of the tracks, 1/3 require a fairly strong lap and 1/3 you will need to not only drive a perfect lap but also have the correct setup. The general consensus seems to be that Yas Marina, Suzuka, Monza, Spa, Silverstone, Montreal and Istanbul are the most difficult tracks to achieve the required times. FIRST, before you start a Time Trial, go to Tuning. Adjust Oversteer to 100% on the first page, and SPEED/ACCELERATION to 70%. Thanks again to Lightsp33d1987 for this invaluable tip. I achieved the Gold Medal on EVERY track with this setup. Also, make sure you are using DRS ( - Layout B) on every straight, and use KERS ( - Layout B) generally accelerating onto the longest straight. For a more detailed discussion of some additional tips for the most difficult tracks, check this thread. There is some confusion it seems over what the Gold Medal Time is. A time to beat is displayed in the top left hand corner of the screen. You will know that you beat the Gold Medal time once your best lap time is better than the "Time to beat" (and it isn't changing). Also, you will receive the Gold Medal after you quit from the Time Trial. Here are the following times required to receive the Gold Medal on each track:
|LEGENDARY CHARGE! (Gold)|
|WIN A RACE STARTING FROM 24TH ON THE GRID|
You will easily accomplish this while grinding through Seasons 2 through 8. You will actually probably do so every race during that time.
|MUST DASH! (Gold)|
|EARN 14 POLE POSITIONS IN A SINGLE SEASON|
Please refer to Leader Of The Pack. While that trophy can be accomplished over a career, just keep in mind that for this trophy you need to secure 14 of the 19 in a single season. The best way is to win all the pole positions in Season 1.
|SHOE MAKER (Gold)|
|EARN 149 CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS IN A SINGLE SEASON|
You will easily accomplish this if you are on Easy difficulty and are winning the majority of the races each season.
|BEAT SEBASTIAN VETTEL IN THE CHALLENGE MODE HEAD TO HEAD RACE|
Go to Challenge mode in the Main Menu. There are 10 "levels" in challenge mode. In each level there are initially five separate challenges. You can receive a grade from an "E" to "A 3 stars" on each challenge. As soon as you complete three challenges receiving a "C" or higher, you will unlock a final challenge. Complete this challenge with a "C" grade or higher to advance to the next level. Again, there is no need to complete every challenge. Complete the minimum to advance through each level to reach Level 10 in the fastest amount of time. By completing the final challenge on Level 10, you will unlock Champion and will have unlocked all of the other challenge related trophies along the way - as long as you have at least received one "A" grade. The challenge mode is pretty straightforward and moderately easy. I would suggest always completing the cornering, overtaking, and checkpoint race challenges as they seemed easier than some of the other types.
