For Gold Run, you must complete the following scenarios found under the Very Hard section of Scenario Mode. (This year, the difficulty is preset, so the gold medals only apply to Very Hard, Silver to Hard, Bronze to Easy and Very Easy - which may cause some confusion.)

Scenario 1: Malaysia - Drive as Vettel on intermediate tyres while your competitors switch to full wet tyres. Keep Alonso behind to win the race.

This one is tricky but definitely beatable. You must complete 5 laps, taking the lead from Alonso just as he is exiting the pits. This gives you around 5secs of a lead. I found on my first few attempts that I lost this gap quickly, and lead of the race before the back straight. Then I tried two things - Rich Fuel, which may seem counter-intuitive in the wet. Usually go for Lean to avoid wheelspin. However, the other trick was to shift up early - pressing A on default setup. Between this and rich mix for fuel, I was able to get good laps in, even extending my gap over Alonso.


Scenario 2: Hungary - Finish in the points in 8th while driving a Sauber that has a partially broken front wing. Keep Grosjean behind to win the Gold Medal.

2 and a half laps to drive defensively. Thankfully you do get a small gap on Grosjean, so drively as close to perfectly as you can should make this easier. Use flashbacks where needed. Hungary is a difficult track to get past if you drive well - use that to your advantage.


Scenario 3: Britain- At a drying Silverstone track, finish on the podium with intermediate tyres driving as Adrian Sutil in a Sauber.

You start in 7th on inters and the other drivers go to dry tyres. The other drivers pit, putting you in 2nd, but you have to hold on for 6 laps. I attempted to stay off the racing (dry) line where possible, to keep the tyres cool. I also had some spare fuel, so went for Rich Mix and shifted up through the gears early when needed.


Scenario 4: Singapore -Finish on the podium at Singapore to achieve a Gold Medal. This time on board with Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen.

5 laps, starting 7th on the grid, got to get top 3. Fairly standard in comparison. Tyres etc aren't comprised, just have a task to get up to third on a tricky track. I found a good start got me into second place, just had to hold it. Use rewinds here, careful not to wreck the car, and drive fairly well - it shouldn't be too bad.


Scenario 5: Japan - The Final Scenario takes place at Suzuka, Japan. Starting in 17th place, win the race in a Ferrari with dry tyres on a rain affected track.

On the grid for the start, in 17th place. 10 laps (!). Rest of the pack on inters and you're on dry tyres. Track is damp but drying. Lean mix and ease on the throttle for the start and shift up to avoid wheelspin. Stick to racing line as best as possible for grip. First few laps, try to stay as close as possible to pack, if not, make a few places (I found myself last after the start...). I found at end of lap 5 the AI pitted, so best to aim to be around 20secs behind the leader by then. I also kept the car on lean mix until lap 6/7, the track was that damp that there was still some wheelspin. That gave me +2/3 laps worth of extra fuel, in case Rosberg or whoever managed to catch up and put me under pressure.

Hopefully this gives you an idea of what's needed. In general - fuel and tyre management, shift up early when you are lacking grip, and hope for a bit of luck. These scenarios are challenging, but not impossible it may just take some patience and practice.

Good luck!
