    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.

    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)

    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

    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. 🙂

    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:

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

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

    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.

    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

    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,

    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.

    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

    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.

    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,

    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,

    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. :’)

    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?

    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.

    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,

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

    The 2019 Japanese GP shows both Russell and Kubica in 16th (http://ergast.com/api/f1/2019/17/results). And the 1956 Argentine GP shows both Musso and Fangio with 5 points, but only Fangio got the fastest lap point (http://ergast.com/api/f1/1956/1/results).

    Hi,

    first of all, thanks for the API.
    I noticed, that the ‘current’ parameter refers to the 2022 season. As this weekend the first race of 2023 takes place, it should refer to the 2023 season instead.

    Hi,
    Looks like you have a bug on the race endpoint : for example : 2020/1/races.json doesn’t return Qualifying object.

    Can you fix it ?

    Hi,

    Hi David,
    It’s working for me. Note there is often a delay between the race results appearing and the lap times appearing – there was yesterday as I had to wait a while for the latter to be published.

    Hi,
    I’m not talking about the results but the schedule of the qualifying,
    For 2022 season and above, an object “Qualifying” is present :
    Example : https://ergast.com/api/f1/2022/1/races.json
    But for 2021 and previous seasons, the object is not present :
    Example : https://ergast.com/api/f1/2020/1/races.json
    Best regards,

    Hi Chris,
    Support for the qualifying, sprint and practice sessions was introduced in 2022. I’ll add a note to the documentation page.
