    For the status, does + number of laps mean that the driver completed the race? There is a peculiar +42 laps, does this mean they were overlapped by 42 laps but still finished the race? Which + number of laps are considered to have finished the race? Thank you!

    Hi Macbeth,
    If a driver completes the race they will have a finishing position. IIRC this is when they have completed 90% of the race distance under the current rules.

    In status database, where could i find the definitions for ‘collision’ and ‘accident’?
    Thank you so much!

    Hi Jing,
    The status field is an informal description using free text. There are no formal definitions or schema.
