    To get this you need to have the slider be all the way to the right towards Showmanship bar (yellow).

    From the menu start new career... do all your personal data preferences whatever you want it doesn't matter. When asked about participating in F2, DO NOT SKIP THIS FEEDER SERIES... the results from these series don't matter but Claire interviews you after all 3 of these races and you need to pick all the cocky and selfish responses so you can boost your ego bar by about 10% before starting F1. laugh If by any chance you accidentally get Sportsmanship rating from the response, quickly Quit and Relaunch the game and when you start up your career again you should be back at the Interview.

    After you've done with F2 now's time for the hard part the F1. Below are % chances I got Claire to interview me after doing each or some of these sessions:

    -Practice session (~33% chance)
    -Quali session (~50% chance)
    -Race session (100% chance)

    Now for the tricky bit... Claire will only interview when you actually participate/enter any session... She will never interview you if you simulate everything... however there's upside to this once you are in any practice, quali or race session you can just crash out or retire. Best part about this you can completely deplete your team's reputation and get fired as many times as you like, it won't matter. The slider will stay where you had it before being fired.

    Some interview key phrases to look out for

    "I'm the best"
    "I'm here to win"
    "I did this for the fans"
    "I'm a little offended"
    "Everyone is allowed one mistake"
    "Maybe you should expect more" < when asked about smashing expectations
    "He should watch where he's going" < when asked about contact with another driver

    Occasionally Claire will ask you about R&D (these don't matter unless you want to make upgrades cheaper and it making it easier and faster to get "Seeing it Through to the End") and she will also ask you some hard/stupid questions where it either increases/damages your rep or your team's rep. The reason I said hard/stupid is because you are trying to go for Showmanship responses and avoid Sportsmanship ones, yet the answers she gives you are extremely similar in these scenarios.

    At any rate you should NEVER pick any responses that would say good things about your TEAM... if all responses have word "TEAM" in them just press cn_B to No Comment.

    Following all these points should get you the achievement at some point in Season 2. I got it in Singapore, but you may get it sooner as I accepted a few Sportsmanship responses and didn't reload. Good luck toast

    Alfa ArtyI'm not certain about that. Maybe a recent patch glitched something? I heard people were getting their career modes reset.

    When I was going for the sportsmanship one I crashed/retired from about 14/21 races and only did my favorite races with Mercedes... for both seasons and didn't upgrade the Merc at all and Claire still interviewed me plenty and got decent amount of sportsmanship questions asked.

    When going for showmanship one. I retired or crashed from most practice and quali sessions but did the 5 lapper race everytime (because I wanted to stay with Alfa because of Kimi and because was also going for "First Amongst Rivals" and "Seeing it through to the end" achievements).

    I guess what it goes to show you is you will get interviews if you maybe mix it up a little from time to time as even for me it became boring if I just did the same thing every race.

    TheWelshHuntYeah I'm definetely thinking going down the retirement route each race is easier for sportsmanship than showmanship.. I completed every race for sportsmanship and like I said, been retiring for showmanship.. I'm sure Devon plays a big part in it too, he was winning in season 1.. Loads of questions, barely in points season, h ardly anything..

    Thinking that its probabaly best like you said to mix it up a bit.. I'm going to complete races from now on see where I get.. Its frustrating because I'm so close lol

    Thanks for the reply anyway man

    PJTierneyEven though I’m going for Showmanship some Showmanship answers are blocked out in interviews, any idea why?

    o0EviIToaster0oThis is such a trash achievement, I'm halfway through Season 4 right now and I've been winning and crashing out of races trying to mix it up and I'm only just a little over halfway with Showmanship. The interviews RARELY give me options to increase my Showmanship. This completely is ruining the game for me as I feel like I'm just wasting my time trying to go for these, hopefully Sportsmanship won't be as stupid.

    Alfa Artyo0EviIToaster0o it seems like they have updated the game, I'm still playing this game and doing career mode and now on Season 4 as well... I'm hardly getting interviews regarding showmanship and sportsmanship slider. I mostly only get R&D interviews and that's it

    pithiviersThis achievement is getting on my nerves.
    I finished my first season and have less than 20%. Interviews pops every 3 or 4 races but certainly not every race. Whats going on?

    Alfa Artypithiviers are you participating in every practice, quali and race session? Claire won't interview you if you sim through most of the sessions. You need to at least spend some good amount of time on track either racing or crashing.

    You can also mix it up each weekend to increase your chances of getting interviews.
