Once you've got that done click on an 'Available Slot' and add an AI Driver set to Legend difficulty. Do the same till the grid is full.
Once a second human driver enters (or a third even) start the races.
Choose 'Go to Race', ignore all setup options.

Driving Strategy:
Cut the first corners by driving through the pit exit. (if you're 2nd on the grid you don't even have to steer into the pit exit)
Cut the first chicane.
Drive the second chicane normally.
Cut the third chicane.
Drive the hairpin normally.
Cut the final chicane, stay on the left and avoid the kerbs.

On average you will earn at least 1500 XP per race, and each race including loading times takes about 3 minutes. Doing the 19 races takes almost an hour, and my hourly average is about 40,000 XP. The higher the rank of all drivers involved, the more XP you get, so as you level up you'll level up faster in future.

To get to level 50 in the online world of F1 2010 you need to have 1,000,000 experience points.

You can get experience points by simply racing online, even if you do not win. Obviously, the better you race, the more you gain. Also, the more people in a race, the more points you gain! It seems you also get more experience points for completing clean laps.

You can actually 'boost' this with a friend, try to get into a lobby where there is only the two of you, so you will be 1st and 2nd and get a decent amount of experience points. [ I do not suggest this, this will take a lot more time ]

Any way you select to go for this achievement is a grind.

Good luck!

[ Just so you guys know, many people out there seem to be racing as if F1 were Destruction Derby, freaking idiots. ]

By far the best way to boost is you and a friend in a custom Grand Prix. Then you click on the 'available space' underneath yours and your friends gamertags and fill the rest of the slots with legend AI.
Here is the things you want on.
Session scoring : Championship
Participation : Race only
Race Distance : 1 lap
Starting Grid : Results order
Car assignment: Players choice
Weather : Clear
Track Selection : Montreal. (as many races as you want)
Tyre wear : off
Fuel load simulation : off
Car damage : off
Car performance : 2010
Collisions : off

Now you just cut all the corners you can to make sure you win. Take it in turns with your partner to win. You will not get penalised for cutting corners because Rules and flags is off. You get roughly 1500 xp per race, which takes roughly 2 mins including loading times.

How I did it SOLO. Nov-20-2012.

What you will need is a second xbox, second copy of the game and a rubber band.

Set up your game just as others have recommended above, with this addition:
Make sure you have:

At the start of the first race rubber-band down your second cars RT button. This will make it start and crash into the barrier past the pit lane every race.

All you have to do is keep winning with your main GAMERTAG.

I didn't even have to look at my second controller. You can (ready it up) without removing the rubber-band and just press 'A' 3 times at the end of each race.

This method will take several hundred wins.
My second gamertag was rank 8.

Special Thanks to GAMERTAG: Msross.
