The Perfect Weekend
Set the fastest time in all 3 Practice sessions, take Pole Position and win the Grand Prix
Easiest to do in Career/My Team. Participate in every practice session (don't simulate anything) and have the fastest time in all sessions and qualifying. Then win the race!
Phoenix from the Ashes
Win a race after starting in last position on the grid
Disqualify, DNF, or place last in qualifying and then win the race. Easy enough to do on Lv20 AI over a 3/5-lap race.
Who You Gonna Call?
Beat a Personal Best Ghost and Rival Ghost in Time Trial
Go to the Solo tab in the main menu and select Time Trial. Set a slow time on a track and then perform a faster lap than the two ghosts.
Ditch the Downforce
Complete a clean Time Trial lap using the 'Maximum Top Speed' car set up preset
Before leaving the garage on a Time Trial, navigate to the Car Setup tab and select the 'Maximum Top Speed' preset.
Win any Championship Event
Not 100% sure whether this includes the Career/My Team championships but you can go to the Solo tab of the main menu and enter the Championship mode to complete one of those. There is a 5-event "Legendary Tracks Classic" championship to minimise effort on this one.
Become One with the Car
Complete a race using Elite Driver Proficiency (Standard Race Style)
This can be done anywhere but to save your rank online or progress in a career mode, do this in a Grand Prix. When you get to the Grand Prix setup, change your assist Driving Proficiency to the preset setting of 'Elite' in the Assists tab. This can be done on a 3-lap race, you just have to reach the finish line.
Win a race whilst using manual transmission
In your assist settings before the race, change the transmission setting to 'Manual' or 'Manual and Suggested Gear' and win the race.
Track Specific Achievements
You'll most likely not pick these up in the course of playing the game.
Mad Tash for the Finish Line

We Are the Champions
Gain 9 positions during a wet race at Brazil in the Brawn BGP 001
Select Classic Cars from the Grand Prix setup, set the car as the 2009 Brawn GP BGP-001, and set the track as Brazil. When you configure the GP, go to the weather tab and set the weather either to wet or very wet. Make sure to set a qualifying method and you can disqualify yourself or crash out of qualifying to start from the back, or just post a slow time.
