    Hi Daniel,
    Unfortunately not, apart from disqualification being shown in the status and time penalties being added to the final times.
    Cheers,

    Hi first of all i want to say thank you for this amazing API.

    i just want to ask for the possibilty to add more info about drivers(height,age,carrer points,championships won) and Teams(points,WCC,current drivers).

    Thank you.

  3. Admin says:

    Hi Ayoub,
    I try to keep the API lightweight, so it’s easier to maintain and the API responses are compact. I think the points totals you suggest could be determined by one API query and a summation at the client.
    Cheers,
    Chris

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    first of all amazing API.

    i found a little error. In the JSON for DriverStandings the code like “HAM” or “VER” arent there for some reason on the years 1950-2015. But only some are missing like for example in the year 2001 Hakkinen has no code like “HAK” or so.

    Yours faithfully,
    Marco

    Hi Marco,
    The driver codes were added a few seasons ago, following a request. I don’t think they have existed for all of Formula One’s history. If someone can provide codes for earlier drivers I would be happy to add them to the database.
    Cheers
    Chris

    Good afternoon,
    I just wanted to say thank you for creating such a fantastic resource. I built my entire final project (simple F1 Android app in an intro to app development course) using it, in conjunction with the actual F1 website.
    Thanks again,
    Adam

  7. Admin says:

    Hi Adam,
    Many thanks for the positive comments. That’s great to hear.
    Cheers,
    Chris

    Hey, first of all thank you for your API it’s very great! I had a question. Is there a possibility to add more schedule information about training and qualifying.

    Thank you so much again,
    Peter

  9. Admin says:

    Hi Peter,
    Ideally I would, but it’s hard to find this information at the start of the season. It’s even hard to find the date/times for the race schedule and keep these up to date with the changes which follow.

    Hi, Any chance the tire set info (with either lap-times or pit-stop data) could be provided too?
    Cheers, Christian

  11. Admin says:

    Hi Christian,
    I’ve never been able to find a reliable source of tyre data from year to year.

    Hello Admin

    I have been a long-time user of this API, and I have decided to write a simple python script to obtain tyre changes that are made during the race and I have inserted them into MySQL. This data comes straight from the press.pirelli website (if you are not familiar, for example, the tyres used for the 2021 bahrain gp can be found at https://press.pirelli.com/2021-bahrain-grand-prix–sunday/). Unfortunately, this data is only available from 2019 til now. Please let me know if you would like to take a look at this and potentially add this data to the API.

    Regards
    Suvashan

    Why doesn’t driver information contain their current team or anything beyond their name and birthday?

    What a useless data point. Literally useless.

  14. Admin says:

    Hi Dave,
    The endpoint is intended to provide filtered lists of drivers, subject to a set of criteria. So, for example, you can get a list of all the drivers active in a particular year – or have driven for a particular constructor. If you want to know a drivers current team you can use the standings endpoint e.g.
    https://ergast.com/api/f1/current/drivers/alonso/driverStandings

    If you want more biographical data you can access other databases using the Wikipedia page ID e.g. https://dbpedia.org/resource/Fernando_Alonso
    Cheers,
    Chris

    Wanted to say what a great resource! Just stumbled upon this in the last few weeks, it’s great. Wondering if you are thinking about adding datasets for the Sprint Qualifiers? I know it’s not set in stone as to if it’s going to carry on. Just wondering.

  16. Admin says:

    Hi Mike,
    If the sprint races becomes a permanent feature I’ll support them – but it’s not trivial because they’ll require a new database table and all the things needed to support it.
    Cheers,
    Chris

  17. Alistair says:

    Hi,
    I’ve been using your database for quite a while now and I was wondering if there was any way to collect the Final starting Grid
    Cheers,
    Alistair

  18. Admin says:

    Hi Alistair,
    Yes – the final grid positions are in the results table e.g. https://ergast.com/api/f1/current/last/results
    Cheers,
    Chris

  19. Alistair says:

    Thanks a lot but it looks like it the final results whereas I was looking for the final STARTING grid positions (before the first lap but after the qu’Ali with applied penalties)
    Alistair

  20. Admin says:

    Hi Alistair,
    There’s a “grid” field for each driver in the data. That’s the Final Starting Grid positions, with occasional adjustments when someone starts from the pit lane after the formation lap.
