    Hi Johannes,

    I’ve added the required header so have another try. Not sure about the JSONP problem though – what method is producing the error message?

  2. Johannes says:

    Thank you! Problem solved.

    i tried to open your Database Image, but whatever collation i choose, I’m getting wrong characters. For Example:(opened with UTF-8)
    Is there a possibility that the Image `got not correctly exported? I would appreciate if you could have a look at this.
    Ciao David

    I’m writing an F1 next-race app for the Pebble watch — but the json response doesn’t have time of race, but your api doc has time in the sample. Countdown to race time is a big deal for the watch face.

    Hi Rob,

    Thanks for the heads-up. All race start times should now be there for 2014.

  6. rob cooper says:

    times have dropped again. They were there this AM but aren’t now (16:13 PDT)

  7. Admin says:

    Apologies Rob – I had to roll back the database to fix the character encoding problems raised earlier. Race times are back and character encoding now fixed.

  8. Admin says:


    Thanks for the heads-up. Character encoding was utf-8 in the API but incorrect in the database image. Surprisingly, the problem was reversible so importing the database could cure it. Now fixed.

    2014, Race 1, didn’t botas pit twice? The json feed does not have that included

  10. Admin says:

    Hi Johnny,

    I’ve re-run the import and several extra pit stops have appeared. Not sure what happened but I’ll keep an eye on it for round 2.

  11. rob cooper says:

    OH NOES! Race time(s) not accurate! Off by one hour (at least for Bahrain, not sure about the others but I assume it’s systemic).

    Here is the return from ergast.com:

    Here is the current epoch time and conversionG
    MT: Sun, 06 Apr 2014 15:52:03 GMT
    Your time zone: April 6, 2014 at 8:52:03 AM PDT GMT-7

    According to this the race will start in 6 minutes or so but it’s been on for close to an hour! Your times are off by one hour.

  12. Admin says:

    Not sure how that happened – times were all taken from official sources before the beginning of the season. I’ll check the remaining races.
