    The solution for this is the same as in F1 2017 and is quite easy:

    F1 2017The 1% clubThe The 1% club achievement in F1 2017 worth 81 pointsWin a 25% + distance race against 'Ultimate' AI opponents


    Head to Grand Prix and select the following:

    > Track: Monza
    > Weather: Clear
    > Race Length: 25%
    > Rules and Flags: Off
    > AI Difficulty: 101 to 110 (Ultimate)

    If using Modern F1 Cars select a Mercedes and you'll start near the front. Any car will do however.

    Use whatever Assists you like and have Flashback enabled just incase something goes wrong.

    The above event setup will let you cut corners without getting penalised, the most obvious benefit being the first chicane. AI drivers will still take the normal racing line which means you will gain several seconds a lap on them every time.

    A 25% race with these settings will take you about 15 minutes to complete.

    DoYouWantAntsWorks great! Also worth noting that if you set Race Starts to Manual (under Gameplay Settings) you can accelerate as soon as the 5th red light lights up while the other cars are still idling to get an extra second or two on them.

    The solution of PJTierney is good but you can also try another circuit see below.

    Head to Grand Prix and select the following:

    *Track: Le Castellet (French Paul Ricard Grand Prix) This circuit is much easier then monza if you cutting corners.
    *Weather: Clear
    *Race Length: 25% (13 laps)
    *Rules and Flags: Off
    *AI Difficulty: 101 to 110 (Ultimate)
    *Assists: free choice (i don't use any)

    Use the team you like (i used Williams)

    My Fastest Laptime 1:14.926 Fastest Ultimate AI Laptime 1:32.660

    With these laptimes you can do 4 pitstops for the improvise-adapt-overcome-achievement

    I am not taking anything away from the above 2 solutions but they did help myself in getting this achievement, but with slightly different settings;

    I raced at Monaco for this achievement due to knowing the track well and knowing what speeds I could take corners at.

    For the race, I started in 3rd place. What I done was cut every run off corner that I could that would place me in a bigger time gap to the car behind. When the race started, I cut the first corner so I could claim 1st place. After this I cut the corner straight out of the tunnel without lifting off the accelorator and cut the corner about 3 corners after this where the speed humps are located (the double corner (right then left) before the final 2 right hand turns to the start/finish straight), I cut the first corner as well throughout the full race. I am not the best driver in the game but for me, this method allowed me to gain around 2.5 seconds a lap ahead of 2nd place. I managed to pit and come out still in 1st place with this method.

    By the end of the race, I lapped the 3 back markers and caught up to the following 8 cars as they were all in a row racing one another - this was on lap 18/20 with a 45 second gap to the car behind me so I was happy enough to stay behind them for the remainder 3 laps.

    I also completed this in the 'Grand Prix' race option but I selected the following settings;

    Mordern Cars->Mercedes->Lewis Hamilton.

    Track - Monaco
    Race Distance - 25% (20 Laps)
    Weather - Clear
    AI Difficulty - 101 (But can be 101-110)
    Assists;
    Flashbacks - On
    Parc Ferme Rules - On
    Vehicle Damage - Off
    Safety Car - On (I never got one)
    Rules and Flags - Off
    Race Starts - Manual
    Tyre Temperature - Surface Only
    Driving Proficiency - Custom
    Braking Assist - Off
    Anti-Lock Brakes - On
    Traction Control - Medium
    Dynamic Racing Line - Corners Only
    Dynamic Racing Line Type - 3D
    Gearbox - Manual
    Pit Assist - On
    Pit Release Assist - On
    ERS Mode - Automatic
    Fuel Load - 29.6KG/25.5 Laps (This is so that I could use the 'Rich' Fuel Mode for the full race - I finished with 0.5 laps of fuel remaining)
    Pit Stops - 1 (High Tyre Management)
