    Hi Ben,
    All the primary keys in the database (such as the raceId) are arbitrary numbers and subject to change. They’re also not guaranteed to be sequential, especially with the fluid schedule seen in the last two seasons. The definite reference for a race is the year and round fields.
    Cheers,

    Hi,
    First of all, thank you so much for creating and maintaining this API!
    I noticed that the Wikipedia link for Mark Webber leads to the disambiguation page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Webber) instead of his actual page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Webber_(racing_driver)). Is that intended?
    Thanks,
    Diana

    Hi Diana,
    Thanks for the warning – now updated.
    Unfortunately, Wikipedia URLs aren’t guaranteed to be stable. Another “Mark Webber” has probably become prominent in the media, so the URL now needs to be disambiguated. I should probably check all the links :-/

    As people before me said already, thank you such much for this API!
    When requesting data from ‘https://ergast.com/api/f1/2021/3/results.json’, the ‘time’ value for Alonso is in a wrong format. The minutes and seconds are seperated by a dot instead of a colon. “time”:”+1.04.808″

    Mclaren is the last team in the 2007 constructor standings, as expected.
    https://ergast.com/api/f1/2007/constructorStandings
    However, they have 118 points, when they should have either 218 or 0 points.
    I don’t know if those 100 points missing is a mistake due to the 100M dollar fine.

    Hi Pablo,
    Thanks for the warning – now corrected.
    I remember having to exclude them but I’m not sure why the points were wrong.
    Cheers,
    Chris
