I’m using an image of the DB and was wondering if there is a way to keep it updated throughout the season that you haven’t mentioned in your documentation. Of course I could use the API to insert new entries into my copy of the DB, but I’d like to keep things like auto increment ID values in sync for interoperability purposes.
Oh, and thanks for providing this, it is quite awesome!
I’ve had another request for this so will start publishing a new image after each race – check the download page for details later today.
Thanks for delivering such a great database. I’ve built an android app round your data, of course completly free, which can be found at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.indigodev.f1almanach.app
Great, thanks a lot! One more request, any chance you could include the number of laps for a particular race with the rest of the race data (ie: in the “Races” object, but outside of the “Results” object – with the other race info like “raceName” and the “Circuit” object)?
For completed races, it would be best if it was the actual number of laps completed by the race winner as opposed to the number of scheduled laps. Actually, perhaps you’d want to include both scheduled and actually completed. I don’t have a particular use for both at this time, but others might find it useful to know if a race ran long or was red flagged and how much it was cut short by.
Right now you have to pull the number of laps completed by the winner before you can figure out how many laps back/what percentage of a race was completed by someone who crashed out or had a failure.
Thanks again, I can’t stress enough how awesome you are for providing all of this!
That sounds useful. It could go in the Race element which crops up in several responses. I’ll add this to the ToDo list for next season as I don’t like to make changes mid-season unless they’re urgent.
Hi! ResultId 12969 (Regazzoni in the 1978 Spanish GP) has statusId value 0 (not a valid key in the status table) instead of 106 (Fuel pipe). I found this to be the only dead key across the results, races, drivers, constructors, circuits and status tables. I love this database.
Thanks Paipa – now corrected.
Hi, Is there any way to expand this to other series ?
Or any chance I could get a copy of the code to build up my own data for a different series ?
Unfortunately, I haven’t got enough time to support other series. However, I’d be happy to share the code if you want to provide another public API. Don’t underestimate the effort required to capture and import the data though – once you start this becomes an ongoing responsibility! What series did you have in mind?
