This is the one I have been using for years. I added it somewhere around three years ago and have never had to redo anything as it just keeps adding the new dates to my calendar.

If you prefer just this year here it is.

u/BrainNSFW Feb 28 '23

Ever since the official calender forgot to adjust the times for one of the races last year, I've started using this calender and it never steered me wrong so far. I also didn't need to do anything to have it automatically work for 2023 either, so it gets my vote.

u/ay8s Feb 28 '23

We do our best! Always fun when we beat F1 to a calendar update. Our paddock passes must be lost in the mail. 🤣

u/La5to Feb 28 '23

Hey man! Thanks for being an awesome person

u/skitzo12 Mar 01 '23

Thanks!!!

u/emptyxxxx Mar 01 '23

How do you make it so the times appear for east coast

3

u/ay8s Mar 01 '23

If you're on our website it should've detected your location. If you tap the cog it should show which timezone is being shown.

For the calendar subscription, once subscribed in your favorite Calendar app it should show up in the right spot for whichever timezone you've got set. :)

u/aFluffyPie Ferrari Mar 01 '23

Hey mate. Been using your website for years! I’ve generated the link with 30 minute reminders however after adding it to my iOS calendar, it says no alerts? I just don’t want to go through every session to add 30 minute reminder

1

u/ay8s Mar 01 '23

That’s odd. Do you not see an event alerts option when subscribing? https://i.imgur.com/P8LugOo.jpg

1

u/aFluffyPie Ferrari Mar 01 '23

Yeah I do. I’ve added 30 minute reminders on the website, generated the linked, added to my iOS calendar, turned events on and sadly still doesn’t show any reminder on the event when I click if. Happy to send screenshots if needed?

2

u/ay8s Mar 01 '23

Interesting. Seeing the same. I’ll take a look in my morning and hopefully get that smoothed before my inbox gets flooded with angry people. 😬

1

u/ubaris Charlie Whiting Mar 01 '23

Usually when subscribing to a calendar, alerts are removed so that they can’t spam you. You have to change that while adding under “Calendar Options” or something like that.

2

u/aFluffyPie Ferrari Mar 01 '23

Yeah I did that but sadly still no alerts :/ iOS notifications for calendar switched on too

1

u/ay8s Mar 01 '23

So if I change the setting to disable stripping after adding it fails and no alerts get set.

If I change it while adding the subscription it seems to work. First time I’ve ever seen those Strip Alert/Attachment settings.

1

u/aFluffyPie Ferrari Mar 01 '23

Ahh thank you. It works now! Thank you so much :)

u/baldbarretto Who's that? Mar 01 '23

Hey, great work with these!

I have a question and a suggestion if you don’t mind. The question is- do I need to re-subscribe in order to have the updated Qatar and Vegas session times (they changed today I think)?

The suggestion - would it be possible to provide more info on the listings for non-f1 series? Example - my f3 calendar entries just say things like “f3: sprint” and not where the race is (I know they don’t have a title like Austrian GP but some clue as to where the sprint is would be nice!)

Sorry, one more suggestion. I see locations for the f1 races, very cool! If you’d ever consider setting those locations to be the tracks instead of the general vicinity (Bahrain intl circuit instead of just sakhir), that could be cool

2

u/ay8s Mar 01 '23

Updates should be automatic. I deployed the Qatar updates today and updated Vegas a few days ago. I don’t think there’s any additional changes to make. Hopefully anyway.

I’ll redeploy F2 and F3 which will revert a change I made yesterday. So it’ll match F1s format.

Unfortunately everyone has their own preferences on the data we include and where. We already generate and host over 15,000 calendar files just for F1 so keeping changes to a minimal. If there’s another field we can use for it we can try adding it in but it also adds additional workload for updates unfortunately.

1

u/baldbarretto Who's that? Mar 01 '23

Thanks for the information!

1

u/fameboygame Sir Lewis Hamilton Mar 02 '23

Hey! I used the same!

Question : is there a calendar for F2 and F3? Just got myself F1TV pro and don’t mind that on my calendar!

u/ay8s Mar 02 '23

u/fameboygame Sir Lewis Hamilton Mar 02 '23

Super grateful! Have an awesome week yourself!

u/Sonnyb0ychris Feb 28 '23

Thank you for sharing!

8

u/ay8s Feb 28 '23

Thanks for sharing! :) We're hoping to deploy some new features later this week, like Push Notifications in your browser or iOS/Android device.

1

u/Sqeeter Mar 01 '23

Hopefully, one of those features is F1 Academy. 👀

1

u/ay8s Mar 01 '23

It is 😀

16

u/markhewitt1978 Feb 28 '23

Good. That it lets to not have free practice sessions. Bad in that it just says "F1: Grand Prix" and not which Grand Prix.

17

u/thatdutchperson Feb 28 '23

It used to say which Grand Prix it is, it surprised me that it didn’t this year. They now only put the location in the location data, in my opinion a change for the worse but it might be to make it more internationally minded or something.

7

u/Ch4rlie_G Charlie Whiting Feb 28 '23

They might still update it I hope.

1

u/thatdutchperson Feb 28 '23

Yeah hopefully, seeing as the season hasn’t started yet and updating them all potentially taking quite some time I’d understand it if they hadn’t done it yet.

10

u/ay8s Feb 28 '23

Will get things back in order. The reasoning for this change was people who subscribe to our F2, F3 etc calendars and keeping the title concise but I agree having F1: Grand Prix isn't ideal.

We shifted the location to the description but not all calendar apps show/use it.

3

u/thatdutchperson Feb 28 '23

Thank you so much for responding and thank you even more for creating the service I have been using for years!

2

u/Dittobox Romain Grosjean Mar 01 '23

I think this has since changed. It shows in the title now for me.

5

u/ay8s Mar 01 '23

Just finished up deploying an update. :)

4

u/ay8s Feb 28 '23

We've been playing around with it a little. Everyone unfortunately wants something different. I agree that doesn't feel great and I'll look at reverting it back to what it was prior to yesterday this evening.

3

u/SupperImuri Feb 28 '23

For me, it shows it in the location section. I use Oneplus 8 and I see it in my calendar.

3

u/gotdamnn Feb 28 '23

The location shows up fine for me when I added it

3

u/milkymoocowmoo Ayrton Senna Mar 01 '23

Oof, that's actually a new change. As recently as a few days ago it would show the location and the session in the name of the event itself, as it has done for years.

/u/ay8s is this working as intended? Gotta be honest, this would stop me from using it as seeing which GP it actually is is just as important as the time.

10

u/ay8s Mar 01 '23

I'll be switching it back after my workday is up.

It'll now read F1: FP1 (Bahrain Grand Prix). Only difference to how it used to display is the addition of "F1:" and the abbreviated session name if it's available. This helps users who subscribe to our other calendars along with making it a little shorter in various calendar apps.

Bear with me as we have 15K permutations of the calendar so once deployed it'll take a while for the calendars to be generated and then pulled down.

3

u/ay8s Mar 01 '23

Should be better now. 🤞

u/blaughlin McLaren Feb 28 '23

Same one I use since I don’t know when.

u/ay8s Feb 28 '23

We've been around quite a while. 😏

u/blaughlin McLaren Feb 28 '23

Man, good job keeping it that good! I’ve bought you a few coffees over the years!

u/ay8s Feb 28 '23

Appreciate it! *sips coffee*

u/HerpDerpinAtWork McLaren Mar 01 '23

Two more headed your way, same reason. Thanks!

u/Jolly-Road44 Feb 28 '23

Thank you mate

3

u/milkymoocowmoo Ayrton Senna Mar 01 '23

Same! Every year I think "oh yeah, better grab a calendar" only to realize the one I added years ago has been updated. I actually thought it was an official calendar!

2

u/BarnabyJones20 Kimi Räikkönen Feb 28 '23

I have been manually entering every session in my calendar

This is a huge time saver

u/StefonGomez Feb 28 '23

This one has such better formatting than the official one.

u/austin_mini75 Honda Feb 28 '23

We have quite a few nowadays. We've also got Formula E, Formula 3 and we're exploring F1 Academy.

u/DoyoureadmeHAL Feb 28 '23

not working on ios calendar. Keeps saying validation failed, can anyone help?

u/IGiveFreeCompliment Max Verstappen Mar 01 '23

amazing, thanks a lot. F1’s official calendar is rubbish in comparaison !

u/Leafar3456 Max Verstappen Mar 01 '23

Love their F1 calendar, but I did have some issues with MotoGP last year where a cancelled race was not replaced.

u/soylagrincha Mar 01 '23

Bless you 🫶🏼

u/Not_A_Crazed_Gunman Default Apr 25 '23

Do you know if the Google Calendar option updates automatically?

1

u/thatdutchperson Apr 26 '23

If you use the site in my comment then I see no reason why it wouldn’t, but I don’t use google calendar myself so I can’t confirm that.

u/FoodGuy44 Feb 28 '23

F1 has a lot of work to do on this Calendar Sync as well as their Fantasy Page…

41

u/JayDaGod1206 Formula 1 Feb 28 '23 edited Feb 28 '23

Their fantasy page is very subpar. Having to go through the app through a external link is far from ideal.

2

u/FoodGuy44 Feb 28 '23

Agreed

5

u/Nurwhal_86 Sir Lewis Hamilton Feb 28 '23

And it doesn’t even keep you signed in…

1

u/FoodGuy44 Feb 28 '23

Not to mention your Fantasy Team doesn’t carry over to the mobile App. Be better F1 Mobile App.

27

u/epsilon1725 Porsche Feb 28 '23

Can't get it to work, in previous years the old calenders were just updated, but I can't see anything in my calendar yet (added in 2021)

3

u/mcninja77 #WeSayNoToMazepin Feb 28 '23

I added in 2019 last year it didn't update until race weekend. Hopefully it'll update again

1

u/SatisfactionAny20 Mar 03 '23

I've been using their calendar since 2020 and it was updating automatically every year, but this year it only updated with a link that says something like "formula 1 calendar has moved!" And then if I click the link it takes me to the one OP mentioned. I don't like it and didn't use it because it asks for full access permissions to my calendar, which is completely unnecessary and the previous calendar didn't do that

19

u/Chigzy Valtteri Bottas Feb 28 '23

I’ve been using the racefans.net calendar. It’s updated for the longest time without me bothering with it.

5

u/dlok86 Feb 28 '23

Same i can't remember when I added it but it's been on point for many years

5

u/SenorStigo Red Bull Mar 01 '23

This is the one I've been using for many years. I even forgot it is not the official F1 because how accurate it has been the whole time.

16

u/thedukedave McLaren Mar 01 '23

I'm surprised no one is talking about these crazy permissions:

This will allow ECAL to:

See, edit, share, and permanently delete all the calendars you can access using Google Calendar

So if I accept, random person at ecal.com can now scrape all my events? Like where I'll be and with whom? Including any calendar shared with me?

2

u/Weale Mar 02 '23

It's especially suspicious because they had been using the same calendar for years and it was working just fine. Now they are pushing for this change by adding a reminder every day in the old calendar... For some reason

1

u/FoobarMontoya Daniel Ricciardo Mar 02 '23

These are insane permissions.

1

u/SatisfactionAny20 Mar 03 '23

That's exactly why I didn't do it. I've been using their calendar since 2020 and it was updating automatically every year (and did not request permissions), but this year it only updated with a link that says something like "formula 1 calendar has moved!" And then if I click the link it takes me to the one OP mentioned. I don't like it and didn't use it because it asks for full access permissions to my calendar, which is completely unnecessary. Very sus because the previous method was working fine and updating and didn't ask for permissions, and now they're intentionally changing the way they do the calendar and it's asking for full permission to go wherever it wants from my calendar! No thanks

u/DRIGCOLK Sir Lewis Hamilton Feb 28 '23

I have a cool widget you can download on your iphone that tells me when every race and session is. Its pretty useless and takes up space during the off season but really fun during the season.

5

u/cavallonzi Pirelli Intermediate Feb 28 '23

Name of the widget?

u/DRIGCOLK Sir Lewis Hamilton Feb 28 '23

formulify

Link - Click on "Sync Calendar"

u/anotherposture Aston Martin Mar 01 '23

But has this been updated yet? As I still can’t see the new calendar even after syncing (Had added the official calendar in 2020 and it has automatically updated since but this year deets I can’t see yet)

45

u/Colanderr Sebastian Vettel Feb 28 '23

It requires full access to my Google calendar, F that

24

u/xDerHund FIA Feb 28 '23

Here is the ics link that it generates so you can add it do the calendar: webcal://ics.ecal.com/ecal-sub/63fdf3211e4145000e274418/Formula%201.ics

5

u/iiEviNii Eddie Jordan Feb 28 '23

I believe the ICS file wont update though - so any changes to session times or dates won't be reflect automatically.

2

u/137automatons Mar 31 '23

Thanks so much for sharing this. It's exactly what I was looking for to prevent having to share any personal info like the F1 site demands. I shouldn't have to furnish date of birth, name, and email to sign up for a free calendar. Thanks again. You're literally the GOAT.

u/kpat12 Max Verstappen Feb 28 '23

This one worked for me. I created a new Google Calendar for the import and it worked. I did have to go through and remove "RN365" from the beginning of. Every. Single. Entry though. That was annoying.

u/townbashet Feb 28 '23

Is there on available with just qualifying and the race? Don‘t really need the trainings

You can use this one that'll let you select the sessions you want to include: https://f1calendar.com/generate

u/StefonGomez Feb 28 '23

It’s a cool feature but I hate how every entry starts with “🏎️ FORMULA 1 FULL GP NAME…” takes up so much space and can’t even see the specific entry on the thumbnail.

4

u/Leather_Turnip3175 Mercedes Feb 28 '23

Last year I’ve used official calendar but this year I went with this calander and now I don’t need to subscribe again for 2024. It will update automatically later. Formula1.com should introduce something like that imo.

2

u/Sammeeeeeee 🏳️‍🌈 Love Is Love 🏳️‍🌈 Feb 28 '23

The one I use:

ics: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/ical/ekqk1nbdusr1baon1ic42oeeik%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics

Google Calender Link :https://calendar.google.com/calendar/embed?src=ekqk1nbdusr1baon1ic42oeeik%40group.calendar.google.com&ctz=Europe%2FLondon

Been using it for some time, gives all major f1 events (including livery release etc). Concise, just enough info.

u/bakafish64 Feb 28 '23

Can’t I just get a list of dates to draw crosses into my paper calendar? 🤔

Is there one that starts the season on April 8th and ends it on Nov 13th?

I’m not seeing the .ics option. And when I select apple, it asks me to sign in to the formula 1 website. Anybody else seeing the same issue?

Nice! I have been using an app called Formulify on my iPhone. It has widgets, so it's nice seeing the race time/date when I open my phone. Also shows standings and stuff if you would like to see that instead

Is there a way to include this without the default reminder of 30 minutes? I added it and couldn't find a way to remove all reminders, so I deleted it
