Lap Time and Pit Stop data

Ergast is pleased to announce that Lap Time and Pit Stop data will be available throughout the 2012 season on an experimental basis – this means the data may not be available as quickly as race results and will not be subject to the same degree of manual checking due to the volume of information. See the new Lap Times and Pit Stops documentation pages for more details. The API also provides a complete set of this data for the 2011 season. Feedback on the new API methods and data validity would be very much appreciated.

    Hi, lovely new features. To be really effective, could the driver information be included as another node, rather another lookup?
    Would ultimately save your web traffic I think.

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for the positive comments.

    > could the driver information be included as another node

    I was hoping you’d be happy to do the equivalent Driver Table query! The difficulty would be deciding how to implement paging. One option would be to include the Driver Table on the first page (i.e offset=0) or on request by using an additional parameter.

    Any other suggestions would be very welcome.

    I will think the way to integrate lap time and pit stop data.

    Thanks!
