Your questions: Drivers’ Grand Prix lap times

I have been looking around the web and tried to figure out where i can acquire lap times for each racer. I am looking for the lap times for each sector and round and for each of the racers. Want to see if I can analyse the data and perhaps see if i can figure out a bit more.

For anyone else looking for these, here’s some help.

I use the paid subscription website Forix which has an excellent database of information on all past Grands Prix plus loads of other racing series.

Autosport.com, which is part of the same subscription, publishes all the lap times after every race.

But there is also a way to get the data for free. The FIA publishes all its lap time data on its website. Here’s the lap times for the European Grand Prix.

It’s in a PDF, which isn’t ideal – but it is free. Who says the FIA are all bad?

Got an F1 question that needs an answer? We’ll tackle it.
