Hi all - I'm back for another F1 walkthrough. The game is, and hence the walkthrough will be, reasonably similar to that of last year. Over half of the achievements for F1 2017 have the exact or similar requirements as that of an achievement for F1 2016.

It's looking like 895G to 915G could be earned within about 12-15 hours, and the remaining 85G to 105G could be two lengthy grinds - one for vehicle upgrades in career mode, and the other for ranking up in online multiplayer.

I'll keep you up-to-date on my progress via this thread. I'll be working at it as much as I can over the next couple of weeks - hopefully that is enough time to 100% the walkthrough, if not the game itself.

As of today I've got the whole walkthrough planned out, with summary notes on each achievement I have already unlocked (44 out of 50).

I am going to crunch some numbers and experiment as I continue through my second career season and beyond to work out the best method for earning and spending resource points. The below career achievement is currently pretty glitchy. It seems it might unlock more often for teams in lower tiers than top tier teams, but for top tier teams it is pretty unlikely to unlock in the first season. It can unlock in subsequent seasons if missed in the first season. No guaranteed method to unlock it is yet known, hopefully the devs fix it with a patch sooner rather than later.

I'll be having a go at multiplayer to get a sense at how long it might take to level up to 10, 25 and 50, but it will likely vary a lot depending on how well you perform race to race. If I can find out the info, I'll add a table with XP required for each level and what sort of XP rewards you get for race results and milestones along the way.

These sections of the walkthrough are now basically done:
Walkthrough Overview, General Hints and Tips, Time Trial, Championships

All other sections are still in very basic note form:
Grand Prix, Career, Multiplayer

So about 20% done overall.

Grand Prix section is mostly done, I have reworked some of it recently from my original plan due to better solutions showing up here on TA that improved on my methods.

About 35% done overall.

About half-way through Career section now, and the glitchy achievement mentioned above can apparently be worked around without too much extra time needed (I will test this myself because I still need to unlock it). Still haven't touched Multiplayer yet.

About 55% done overall.

Career is now complete with the exception of the longer grind of the two R&D/upgrade achievements, I still need to do more research on the best approach, and write up a bit more on the core competencies that help speed up R&D progress. I have tested the workaround for the glitched achievement - it works well and takes only 40 minutes - still need to write that up.

I also tidied up Grand Prix mode, added some pictures and short videos (10-20 seconds typically) where they gave some benefit beyond just the written guide.

I need to write up multiplayer still - PJTierney has put up a pretty comprehensive solution for public multiplayer, so I will make use of that info (credited of course).

About 75% done overall, and I am hoping I will have it submitted for review by this time next week at the latest. Forza 7 awaits and I want to finish a couple of other games first! shock

More tidying up is done, and Multiplayer section is completed for the two achievements not requiring public matchmaking. Biggest chunk left is still R&D/upgrade grind within career.

About 85% done overall, still aiming to be finished in the next three days, I think I can get there!

As per usual, it is the last 10% that is taking longer than I expected. Multiplayer is done and all sections are finalised and tidied up bar one final proof-reading, with the exception of career R&D/upgrade grind, where I am still just doing a few experiments within my own career to see how best to earn RP at the fastest rate overall.

95% done, and I am hoping I might be able to wrap it up tomorrow after another 3-4 hours of effort.

@Feebbil - I will send you some quick career notes in a P/M to get you started safely.
