Live timing : enable sector times
- 28th April 2018, 11:58 at 11:58 am #366007
Want the live sector times back on live timing ?
Login to formula1.com, and go to the live timing page. Then press F12 and paste this into the console :28th April 2018, 12:03 at 12:03 pm #366009
This should work in any browser on any operating system. You’ll still need to login and navigate to the timing page on f1.com.
If F12 does not work to open the console, try right clicking and choosing “inspect”.
You may get a warning about “scam warning”; the code only changes ‘cookies’ saved (and not checked) by the F1 site.

Would people be happier with an extension, that would only work for FireFox and Chrome users ?28th April 2018, 15:32 at 3:32 pm #366065
I tried multiple times. F12 – Console – Paste link at bottom where it says >>> – press Enter – nothing happens – reload Live Timing – still nothing – reboot computer – still nothing.

Compare your screen shot to mine : in yours I do not see the pasted “document.cookie….” stuff in the very bottom of the “console” tab.
Please take a picture immediately after doing that and pressing enter.29th April 2018, 18:39 at 6:39 pm #366295
When I first tried it I pasted the URL into the bottom of the console tab, i.e.
Then I realised you actually want us to go to the link and paste what is there. So I tried again and pasted…
document.cookie=document.cookie.replace(‘subscriptionStatus%22%3A%22inactive%22′,’subscriptionStatus%22%3A%22active%22’) ; document.location.reload()
…and pressed ENTER. Still no dice.
I tried with Microsoft Edge browser which I never use. Also doesn’t seem to work.

In neither of your screens can I see the past of the ‘document….’ command, or what the page said after you did that and pressed enter.
I can only assume you are pasting the right thing but to the wrong place.
For avoiding of doubt, this should be in the very very bottom of the ‘console’
until you can get to the same point I link to in my screen shot I cannot help.29th April 2018, 20:46 at 8:46 pm #366302
Here are step by step screen shots of what I did.
I note the F12 window on your screen shot has the heading
“Developer Tools – Live Timing – URL”
which mine doesn’t. Is this significant?8th May 2018, 12:54 at 12:54 pm #366874
Do not press F12 till you have the live timing running in a window (ie after login to the f1 website and its showing sectors). Do not change tabs or windows.
Good news is you do this once and it appears to stick forever.12th May 2018, 10:32 at 10:32 am #367255
Sorry, didn’t work. I first copied the “document.cookie…” code to the clipboard, then I opened Live Timing and registered, then I pressed F12, pasted the code, and pressed Enter. This is what I got:
XML Parsing Error: syntax error Location: https://www.formula1.com/bin/fom-website/login_status Line Number 1, Column 1:
I note it refers to Login Status. Maybe because I am not a paid member, I just have the free features like Leaderboard and Live Commentary, but not the premium content tabs Lap Chart, Speed, and Tyres.
Thanks for the effort you’ve put in, but I’m giving up now.14th May 2018, 8:20 at 8:20 am #367542
Then refresh the page. Enabled now?16th May 2018, 12:49 at 12:49 pm #367769Robert MartinParticipant
Thanks for sharing your guidance.7th July 2018, 13:48 at 1:48 pm #372067
If anyone would like to try a Greasemonkey version, install Greasemonkey into your browser, and message me for the URL of the trial version of the extension.
