## Formula 1 API Overview The Formula 1 API provides schedules and live coverage for all F1 Championship races. Select the Formula 1 package in our Coverage Matrix for events and data offered. This API uses a descending, stage-based structure. By changing the stage ID, you can retrieve information on a season, event, race, or any of the practice or qualifying stages. Additional feeds provide complimentary stats, including:
  • Racer profiles
  • Team profiles
  • Race and Championship win probabilities
API API Version
Formula 1 v2
Note: Authentication is required for all API calls.
## Formula 1 v2 API Map To best utilize the Formula 1 API, you will need several parameters to create your API calls. The map below illustrates how you can obtain the parameters you need. >

Example:

>To find the win probabilities for a given race: >
  1. Call the Seasons endpoint and find the Stage Id for the current season
  2. Call the Stage Schedule using the 'season' Stage Id
  3. Locate the Stage Id for the upcoming race
  4. Call the Stage Probabilities using the 'race' Stage Id
  5. Within the results locate the win probability for each racer
>The probability of a win for each racer is displayed. The primary Seasons feed requires only a human-readable parameter to call the endpoint. This feed provides season Stage Ids, which can be used to generate descending Stage Summary feeds to include more detailed info, such as events and races. These feeds can then be used to generate profile feeds. ## Competitor Merge Mappings Provides the valid Sportradar Id in cases when two competitors have been merged into one. Mapping entries will remain in the feed for 7 days.

Q: How does the stage system work?

A: The F1 API uses generic stage implementation. The core of the API is built around the concept of stages. For example, an event contains the following stage types: practice, qualifying, and race. Each of those stages, in turn, have stages (except Practice which has no sub-stages). The IDs of each stage are usable in the URL path to request information about that particular stage. Qualifying stages contain sub-stages known as "Qualifying Parts". In the Race stages, the sub-stages are laps. You can use the lap stage ID in the URL to get specific lap details, including driver times, and position.

The F1 sport and seasons within it are stages as well. The sport stage consists of season stages for each annual season. Using the ID of a chosen season as a parameter in the Stage Summary endpoint you can "drill down" into each season. For example, using the 2022 season ID as a parameter in the Stage Summary endpoint, the sub-stages will be individual race events. From the race event, you can drill down into the practice, qualifying, race, and lap stages of a race using the same endpoint with different stage IDs.

The best way to "start" the navigation with the F1 API is using the Seasons endpoint. From there one can obtain the stage ID for the season required and use that as a parameter in the Stage Summary endpoint.

Stage Type Information Included Sub-stages
Sport Information about the seasons included. Which is limited to the current and previous season only. Note probabilities do not return valid data on this stage. Formula 1 seasons
Season Contains the season schedule, driver and team standings and statistics. Events on the F1 calendar for that season (eg: Melbourne Grand Prix, Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, etc.).
Event Information about a single event, the competitors, the teams, and the circuit. Sessions (eg: Practice, Qualifying, Race)
Practice Competitors and results of practice such as fastest time etc. None
Qualifying Information pertaining to the qualifying stage of the event including conditions, competitors, and overall qualifying results. Qualifying Parts
Qualifying Part Information about the individual qualifying parts of the overall qualifying stage such as conditions, competitors, and results. None
Race Details of the race itself including the competitors, lap by lap, and overall results. Laps
Lap Specific details on individual laps such as driver positions, times, etc. Note probabilities do not return valid data on this stage. None

Q: What are the stage types I can expect to see in the feeds?

A: Here are the Formula 1 stage:

  • sport
  • season
  • event
  • practice
  • qualifying
  • qualifying_part
  • race
  • lap

Q: How do I see the Championship points table?

A: Use the stage summary endpoint and a season stage ID as the parameter. The competitors node lists competitors, ranked with points, position, victories, races, races with points, and podiums.

Q: How do I know what 'stage' I am currently looking at?

A: Each stage has a 'stage' element. The stage element has an attribute 'type' displays stage type. The different valid stage types are listed above.

Q: How do I get the probabilities for the entire Championship? Or only one race?

A: You can use season, event, and race stage IDs as parameters for the probabilities endpoint. Probabilities are available for the individual driver to win the season, a single event, and race stage. Probabilities are not available on the Sport, Practice, Qualifying, or Lap stages.

Q: How do I retrieve information about an individual driver?

A: Use the Competitor Profile endpoint with the required driver's competitor ID. The best place to get the driver's competitor ID is the Stage Summary endpoint, using the season stage ID.

Q: What races are covered in the F1 API?

A: The entire F1 Championship. For a more detailed breakdown, reference our Coverage Matrix.

Q: Is it updated in real-time?

A: No, the F1 API provides lap by lap updates.

Q: Does this API include Qualifying and Practice sessions?

A: Yes, qualifying stages are all covered lap by lap. Practice sessions are updated post-session.

Q: Which plan should I choose ("Premium" or "Basic")?

A: Races are only covered from a lap by lap perspective. Premium provides enough calls to allow you to call the race endpoint every 10s for fresh data. The Basic plan only provides a small number of calls per session to allow for retrieving only the results.

Q: What are the possible stage and driver statuses?

A: Here are the possible stage and driver statuses:

Stage Status • Completed • Closed • Running • Cancelled • Finished • Not Started • Red flag • Yellow flag • Red and yellow flag • White flag • Safety car • Warmup • In grid Stage Sub Status • 2 hour rule • 75% rule • All laps completed • Entire track Driver Status • Pit stop • Finished • Disqualified • Did not start • Out • In race Driver Sub Status • Unknown • Retired

Q: What format are date fields presented in?

A: When we present date only values we present these in the ISO 8601 standard format.
ex: 2013-04-03
We use these for attributes that have date and no time (such as birthdate). For more information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601

Q: What format are the date/time fields presented in?

A: All of our Date/Time attributes are in UTC, presented in the ISO 8601 standard format.
ex: 2013-04-03T18:15:00+00:00
For more information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601
