In order to get this achievement, you need to sign a contract with a team that is placed above you in the Constructors championship. Best way of getting it is to chose an opponent when you arive in Hungary, beat him in the standings at the end of the year, and make sure his team finishes ahead of yours.

Be wary though as the achievement may not sync. I have already unlocked it 4 times, but it still doesn't show up on my xbox page.

Introduction: So, as you may know, this achievement is glitched beyond belief and will not stick when unlocked normally 99% of times. Before following this procedure, you must be at the point in the game when you already have a contract available from a higher positioned team than yours in the constructer's championship and you have not accepted it yet. At this moment, back up your F1 2010 save folder ( C:\Users\[your_username]\Documents\My Games\FormulaOne ) This is going to be a rather long procedure, so read through very carefully:

Step 1: Make sure the game is not running and navigate to C:\Users\[your_username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Xlive\Content\[your_profile_id]\FFFE07D1\00010000\[your_profile_id]_MountPt\ (Appdata is a hidden folder)

Step 2: Back up these 2 files:
- FFFE07D1.gpd (it's your entire games library local achievement structure) AND
- 434D0831.gpd (it's your F1 2010 (PC) local achievement structure)

Step 3: Delete the 434D0831.gpd file from the folder from Step 1

Step 4: Start the game up, make sure you are logged in to LIVE and if you take a look in the GFWL guide, you should see that you have no achievements unlocked in this game at all (that's normal because you deleted that file at Step 3). DO NOT PRESS START AT THE TITLE SCREEN YET!

Step 5: Back in the folder from Step 1, you should notice the file 434D0831.gpd exists again, but has a much smaller size than before (usually 40 KB). MOVE it somewhere else, we'll need it later.

Step 6: Copy the 434D0831.gpd file from Step 2 into the folder from Step 1

Step 7: Press Start at the title screen now and get to the paddock. Once there, replace the 434D0831.gpd file from the folder from Step 1 with the one from Step 5 (the 40 KB one)

Step 8: So now, if you look in the GFWL guide you should have no achievements unlocked in this game and you are sitting at the paddock in game. All that's left is to go to Career, speak to your Agent and accept the offer from the team higher positioned than you in the constructor's championship.

Conclusion: In a few seconds, not only the glitchy achievement is going to unlock, but also all other previously unlocked achievements in F1 2010 (PC) and temporarily they will add their gamerscore to your total gamerscore a second time. No worries though, as after another 15 seconds or so, everything should correct by itself (your total gamerscore, the amount of achievements in the game and your gamerscore for the game). More importantly though is the fact that now "Hot Property" unlocked properly and actually got uploaded to the Xbox servers (check xbox.com to be sure).

P.S. If the procedure doesn't work the first time or you mess up something, exit the game, replace your current F1 2010 save with the backup save (see Introduction) and also replace the FFFE07D1.gpd and 434D0831.gpd files from the folder from Step 1 with the backup files from Step 2 and then repeat the whole procedure starting from Step 3.
