The guide for F1 2010 was up within a week or so of release. The guide for F1 2011 was up on the official release date (Daenius & I both had the game before then). I gave up on the series after 2011 (the demo for F1 2012 was a disaster), but no one stepped up to the plate to create a guide. Well, until now. It looks like Maka has it in the works.
So, your perception of "time of release" until "guide creation" is off, except for 2012.

Done with achievements.
