Here is a video guide for the achievement:


Tips:

Pre-Race:
- Main Menu, Proving Grounds, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes, United States, Dry.
- Engineer, Quick Car Setup: DRY.

Pre-Lap:
- Save up KERS to use while pulling into the straightaway after the last corner, and make sure to have DRS deployed.
- Pass the line going as fast as possible to give yourself the best possible chance of a fast lap.

Lap:
- Make sure to downshift (x button) when braking to reduce braking distance.
- Use your ghost as a benchmark and keep in mind where you should make up ground on it.
- Use KERS and DRS at the beginning of the long straight, until you have about half a bar of KERS left, while keeping DRS deployed.
- I prefer to have the "corners only" race line enabled to give me a braking reference, and the fastest line through each corner.
- Use the remainder of your KERS in the final stretch, and make sure to have DRS enabled.
