NotesEdit

DatesEdit

The old Date parameter has been deprecated, to allow this template to emit a microformat (see below). Please use Fulldate instead, with the date entered using the {{Start date}} template. Existing instances will be changed in due course.

Country namesEdit

Country names should not be wikilinked.

Race_No and Season_NoEdit

A discussion in 2017 resolved that the "Race_No" and "Season_No" fields should not be populated for 1950 onwards, and the information should be included in the article lead instead. After the fields had been depopulated for 1950-1974 races, the decision was questioned. It is therefore recommended to leave these fields untouched until a final resolution on the subject is reached.

Previous/Next_roundEdit

Previous/next round of the championship, without square brackets, e.g.:

| Previous_round = 2004 Bahrain Grand Prix
| Next_round     = 2004 Spanish Grand Prix

not:

| Previous_round = [[2004 Bahrain Grand Prix]]
| Next_round     = [[2004 Spanish Grand Prix]]

DistanceEdit

Note that distances should entered in kilometres using the {{Convert}} template: {{convert|XXXX|km|mi|abbr=on}}. Miles will automatically be calculated and display correctly. If the original race distance quoted in miles in your source, use {{convert|XXXX|mi|km|abbr=on}} and the kilometre distance will similarly be calculated and display correctly.

For shortened races (e.g. red-flagged and not restarted, or two-hour limit reached) enter the distance that was run in the standard code and add the distance that the race was scheduled to run using the following additional lines:

| Scheduled_laps  = 
| Scheduled_length=

Historical flagsEdit

For historical races, the current flag of a country may not be appropriate. Therefore, this template supports the flag variant feature. The list of available flag variants for each country is documented on the specific page for the country data template. For example, Template:Country data Italy includes a description of each of the available flag variations for Italy. Add the appropriate field from the selection below and enter the variant name (e.g. 1861):

| Pole_flag_suffix = 
| Fast_flag_suffix   = 
| First_flag_suffix  = 
| Second_flag_suffix = 
| Third_flag_suffix  = 

(Fields correspond to pole position, fastest lap and 1,2,3 places)

Shared fastest lapEdit

In early races, limits in timing equipment occasionally resulted in two or more drivers sharing fastest lap. In these occasions list one driver as normal using the standard pro-forma and add and complete the following additional fields. Note that "2" can be replaced with 3–7 to provide a maximum of 7 drivers sharing fastest lap.

| Fast_Driver2      = 
| Fast_Country2     = 
| Fast_flag_suffix2 = 
| Fast_Lap2         = 

Shared drivesEdit

In Grand Prix and early Formula One races, it was common for two or more drivers to share a car. In the event that a shared drive took pole position or finished on the podium, list the first driver as normal in the regular template and add the appropriate fields:


| First_Driver2      = 
| First_Country2     = 
| First_flag_suffix2 = 

| First_Driver3      = 
| First_Country3     = 
| First_flag_suffix3 = 

| Second_Driver2      = 
| Second_Country2     = 
| Second_flag_suffix2 = 

| Second_Driver3      = 
| Second_Country3     = 
| Second_flag_suffix3 = 

| Third_Driver2      = 
| Third_Country2     = 
| Third_flag_suffix2 = 

| Third_Driver3      = 
| Third_Country3     = 
| Third_flag_suffix3 = 

Grids set by heats, ballot or car numberEdit

Some grids were determined by methods other than time. To show this in the pole position section, replace

| Pole_Time      = 

with

| Grid_from_heats = True

or

| Grid_from_ballot = True

or

| Grid_from_number = True

Race titleEdit

Most race titles are in the form "##### Grand Prix" – for these you need enter only the ##### part e.g.

| Grand Prix    = #####

and the Grand Prix will be added automatically. If the race title doesn't end in Grand Prix, add the appropriate ending (Cup, Trophy etc.) with the following line:

| GP_Suffix     = 

For races that have no ending, add the GP_Suffix line, but leave it blank.

Unknown pole-sitterEdit

For some older Grand Prix races, details on the grid, and specifically pole position may not be available. In these cases use:

| Pole_Driver   = Not known

All other pole fields (Time, Country, Team, etc.) should be omitted. Note that 'Not known' is case-sensitive.

LapchartEdit

Use {{F1LapsXXXX}} to fill in this parameter. Replace XXXX with the year of the race in question and add a pipe (|) and the Grand Prix's country code to the end of the template. For instance, for the 1995 Australian Grand Prix, use {{F1Laps1995|AUS}}.

MicroformatEdit

The HTML mark-up produced by this template includes an hCalendar microformat that makes event details readily parsable by computer programs. This aids tasks such as the cataloguing of articles and maintenance of databases. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please visit the Microformat WikiProject.
