There are two sets of Scenario Mode you have to complete for this achievement.

The first is on the normal 2013 screen, there are four sets to do here: ROOKIE, TEAM MATE, CHAMPIONSHIP and FINAL YEAR
The last set are located in classics mode: CLASSIC

When at the screen to select the scenario you want to do use RB to change the difficulty to GOLD

If you have played F1 2012 you will find that these are a lot easier than last year. Roughly half of them you are given the advantage of just having to defend your position, or you start on the grid and are able to pass most of the field before the first corner.
If you have to catch up to someone these again aren't amazingly difficult, race as clean as you can but don't worry too much if you go off a bit here and there.

I was usually in gold position without too much trouble and then it's a case of defending that position.

General Tips:
- Race to the last lap unless you spin out and have already used your flashback, it seemed to me that the AI slow down quite a lot on the last lap most of the time so you could take it then if you haven't already

- When you are in position to take gold don't get greedy and try to move up the grid, if you can do easily then by all means go for it but I wouldn't risk out-breaking into a corner for no reason.

- Getting out in front and defending is the best way to get these, you can block all over the track and not get penalised so block them every chance you get

- Your car is stronger than you think, I found that the front wing doesn't desintergrate as easily as is has in previous F1 games. You can't go full speed into a corner smashing into the pack to help you round a corner but you can take a hard nudge or two

Defending Strat:
- Cover as much of the track as you can
- Look out for the arrows behind you and adjust to stay in front of them
- You can knock their front tyre with your back tyre to either slow them down or spin them out without penalty
- If they are next to you move then onto the grass, they will slow down when they touch it but be aware this will leave the whole other side of the track open of anyone else to come past you
- Try to avoid ANY contact with your front tyres, it will more than likely end in a penalty for you
