    Hi,
    Thanks for your amazing database which allows to do so many insightful analysis.
    I noticed an error in the United States Grand Prix 1991 (raceId 305). Time delta for Piquet and Modena are wrong (+1:17 and +1:25), it is actually (+17s and +25s) (see formula1.com/en/results.html/1991/races/559/united-states/race-result.html )

    However, I was wondering if it is possible to add to the db Qualifying and Fastest Laps data for races available on the F1 website as their archives are quite complete.

  2. Noam says:

    Another small mistake is in the name of Boy Hayje (driverId 257), his surname is Lunger in the database

    Hello!

    The wikipedia url (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshall_Teague) for Marshall Teague seems to not land at the correct page. It lands at an intermediary page. I believe this is the correct one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshall_Teague_(racing_driver)

    Thanks Filip – now corrected.
    Cheers,

    Hi there 🙂 big fan of your work, thank you for everything.

    For the 2020 Styrian GP qualifying, it looks like Kimi got Magnussen’s Q1 time of 1:21.140. Kimi should have a Q1 time of 1:21.372

    Hi! I think there is bug in status of raceId = 1085 (France 2022) for driverId = 855 (Zhou). Currently status is 16 (+6 laps), but it was technical DNF caused by Power Unit as in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2022_French_Grand_Prix
    I know that official results says +6 laps, but I suppose it should be DNF

  7. Christian says:

    Regulations say “Cars having covered less than 90% of the number of laps covered by the winner (rounded down to the nearest whole number of laps), will not be classified.” Winner in France covered 53 laps, 90% rounded down is 47 laps. Zhou completed exactly 47 laps, so he was classified 6 laps down, no DNF. I think his result is correct. 🙂

  8. F1_charts says:

    Christian, classifed/not classified is not same as DNF/not DNF. Driver can have DNF and still be classified.

    Look at Bottas at Hungary (1086 raceId) – situation is the same, he was classified as he completed 90% of race (so he has position), but in result/status he has DNF (status = 131) caused by Powr Unit failure. That is correct I think. Look at official result:

  9. F1_charts says:

    Hi, it seems that data about fastest laps is missing for last race (1089)

  10. Admin says:

    Hi F1_charts
    Thanks for the warning – now corrected.
    Chris

  11. F1_charts says:

    Thank you Admin!

    One more thing – Pit Stop data for last race is also not available

  12. sd. says:

    The results for the 2020 Emilia Romagna Qualifying have Bottas’s “number” as 33 instead of 77 (although his “permanentNumber” is correct):

    Thank you for working on this wonderful resource!

    Thanks sd – now corrected.

    Hi Chris, there is info that database images are updated on 02/10/2022, however .csv files are still from 13/09/2022. Could you check please?

  15. Pablo says:

    Hi. In 2018 Italy GP positionText doesn’t match position starting with Ocon
    https://ergast.com/api/f1/2018/14/results.json

  16. Kieran says:

    The 2021 Sprint result does not contain fastest lap information for Gasly

  17. Admin says:

    Thanks Pablo – now corrected.
    Cheers,
    Chris

  18. Admin says:

    Hi Kieran,
    AFAICT Gasly didn’t register any lap times in the sprint qualifying session at the 2021 Italian Grand Prix – he crashed out in the first lap.
    Cheers,
    Chris

  19. Pablo says:

    Hi, in Spanish GP 2022, Mick Schumacher Q3 lap time should be 1:20.368 instead of 1:20.638

    Thanks Pable – now corrected.

    Hello,

    I built an iOS
    widget – https://github.com/Svalbard15/scriptable-widgets
    based on the sciptable app – https://scriptable.app/
    (Scriptable allows to use Javscript to code iOS widgets)

    As of today it’s broken.

    I am loading this API https://ergast.com/api/f1/current/next.json

    I tried to load the URL from Safari (iOS browser) but Safari can’t load it either.
    I can load the URL on Windows just fine.

    Wondering if anything changed? Maybe with the certificate?

    Thank you,
    F1 Race Fan

    Good evening. I noticed that P15 is missing in 2022 Round 21. http://ergast.com/api/f1/2022/21/qualifying

  25. Admin says:

    Hi Brandon,
    Thanks for the warning – now corrected
    Cheers,
    Chris

  26. Admin says:

    Hi F1 Race Fan,
    It seems to be ok this morning.
    When you try the URL in Safari what do you see? Does it hang and timeout or do you get a 403 error?
    Cheers,
    Chris

  27. Me says:

    2022 Round 21 Brazil Race – Gasly grid position should be 10, currently returning 0.

  28. Admin says:

    Thanks Me – now corrected.
    Cheers,
    Chris

  29. Enrique says:

    Not sure if this is a bug or not, but here:

    http://ergast.com/api/f1/2008/2/driverStandings

    This call shows only 18 drivers, when there are really 22 in that session. It seems that the API is taking only the statistics of the drivers who have finished at least one race or something like that, since it is a problem that is repeated in the first rounds of other sessions too. These results are a bit strange.

  30. Otman says:

    Hi, First of all, thanks for you database open source.

    I notice the results for the Brazilian Sprint aren’t indicate in the URL :

    https://ergast.com/api/f1/2022/sprint.json

    it’s normal?

    thanks

  31. Pablo says:

    Hi.
    I saw that you added 2023 season. However, the new Las Vegas circuit has the same circuitId than old Caesars Palace Grand Prix during the 80s. It should be different, isn’t it?
    Thanks.

  32. Admin says:

    Hi Pablo,
    Good point. Unfortunately, there isn’t a Wikipedia page for the new circuit yet – just an entry on Grand Prix page:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Las_Vegas_Grand_Prix#Circuit
    which I’ve used for now.
    Cheers,
    Chris

    Hi,

    Thank you for the amazing databse!

    I noticed points error for Lando Norris in Round 4 of 2022 Season. Norris won 19 points that weekend but data reports 15 points.

    I came across this issue when I was calculating total career points for all drivers. I checked it for Hamilton, Leclerc and Norris. Total points for all three drivers did not match what was relfected on F1’s website. So I decided to manually check all the results for Norris and came across this error. I think Hamilton and Leclerc might have similar errors. I’ll keep you posted if I notice something.

    Thank you.

    Best,
    Vaibhav

  34. Vaibhav says:

    Hi,

    Please ignore my last comment. I just realised that the data on F1’s website is wrong for Imola and Brazil races of 2022 season. :’)

    Best,
    Vaibhav

  35. y34hbuddy says:

    I’ve noticed that the API endpoint exhibits quite a lot of downtime recently, returning HTTP 500 for most of the day and printing an error about establishing a database connection. Is this expected?

  36. Admin says:

    Hi y34hbuddy,
    Unfortunately, a technical issue has appeared in last fortnight causing the server to run out of memory every few hours. I introduced a temporary fix last night but I’m still looking for the root cause.
    Cheers,
    Chris

    Hi,
    First of all thanks for this amazing service!

    I discovered an error: some of 2022 GPs appear as their qualis/FPs have been held in 2023. For an example at the 2022 Abu Dhabi GP the qualy date is 2023-11-19.

    Also, I would like to donate you, but I don’t have PayPal. Could you make another supporting page (like Patreon) for this purpose?

    Thank you,
    Lorand

  38. Admin says:

    Hi Lorand,
    Whoa – thanks for the warning. Unfortunately, the schedule is entered manually, so this is a bad case of operator error.
    Cheers,
    Chris
