    Hi Berdy,
    I’m reluctant to duplicate the timing data because the lap times are the largest element of the database. However, if more users request it I’ll consider it.

    Hello.
    In the last GP (France GP) results table, you forgot about Grojean. And as a result, the table has only 19 rows instead of 20. Could you pleas? fix it.

    Hi! Is there a way to tell from the API what grid position a driver starts the race in? For example, in Monaco this year, Gasly qualified 5th but started the race in 8th due to a penalty. This is a problem for the code I am writing to apply the Fantasy F1 rules and tell how many grid places a driver gained/lost during the race

  7. Pete says:

    I swear to God I looked for hours, and just saw ‘grid’ in the results. Sorry!

  8. Admin says:

    Hi Pete,
    I’ve added a note on the qualifying page as the location is not obvious.

    Hello!

    First a big thanks for the providing the API.

    I found that the results for year 2011 round 3 is not containing the fastest lap data. It’s the first race results I found not containing this data. Is this a bug or isn’t this data available?

    Hi,

    In the latest race results (Belgium GP 2019), the ‘positionText’ field for Norris is “112” instead of “11”.
    Thanks!

    Thanks Chris!

    Hi Admin,

    Norris’ results for the 2019 Belgian GP has a typo in their position text (112 instead of 11, see below for example)

    Thanks sankex – now corrected.

    Hello,
    Roster changes for Albon/Gasly are not taken into account.
    Thanks for the amazing API!

    Hi Thomas,
    Can you be more specific – what needs to change?

    Hi,

    For the 2015 Chinese GP it shows in your data that Max Verstappen finished in 17th position. But on the official F1 website it says he DNF’d.

    raceId = 928
    driverId = 830
    F1.com link: https://www.formula1.com/en/results.html/2015/races/919/china/race-result.html

    Cheers,

    @Coen – he completed 90% of winner’s number of laps, he was classified.

    Hello guys,

    I was working with pit stops times and I noticed there are 112 records where the duration seems quite odd (for instance here: http://ergast.com/api/f1/2016/1/pitstops?limit=45). Checking on https://www.formula1.com/en/results.html/2016/races/938/australia/pit-stop-summary.html, I see the same.

    Is the data wrong or I’m missing something?

  20. mkl says:

    @Thiago
    It was the red flag period when all the cars returned to pit lane.

    Hi –

    Thanks

    Hi Mike,

    Hi,

    “Lotus” and “Lotus F1” are missing Constructor Table information.
    They are both recognised as constructors but when accessing it to find it’s nationality they both show blank for name, nationality and it’s Information Field.

    No desperation to get it fixed on my end. Just thought you would like to know xD.

    Thanks, Harry

  24. Luke says:

    Hi,

    I was wondering if there was an exact time every week that the latest race results were updated? Or even if it’s just a rough estimate – would you be able to provide me with that? I want to cache the API responses, but would like to clear this cache at least once a week, and ideally when I know for certain the latest results have been updated.

    Many thanks,
    Luke

  25. Luke says:

    Whoops! I’ve just read your FAQ. Apologies.

  26. Michel says:

    I found an error in the qualifying results for the 2019 Russian GP. Kyvat is listed as a driver for Red Bull.

    Thanks Michel – now corrected
