hello as per title: how to get fastest lap time and driver iD per race

if i run
SELECT * FROM F1database.lapTimes

Open in new window

 i get

# raceId, driverId, lap, position, time, milliseconds
'841', '20', '1', '1', '1:38.109', '98109'
'841', '20', '2', '1', '1:33.006', '93006'
'843', '20', '3', '1', '1:32.713', '92713'


actual results in attached file  

I would love result of

raceid, fastesttime, driverId

so i 10 races i would get 10 results if 700 races i would get 700 results.....  hope that all makes sense and that you can help

what is the actual data type of the lap time column?
are all the other columns int (integers)?
what version of MySQL are you using?

for this sample:
CREATE TABLE lapTimes
    (`raceId` int, `driverId` int, `lap` int, `position` int, `time` varchar(12), `milliseconds` int)
;
    
INSERT INTO lapTimes
    (`raceId`, `driverId`, `lap`, `position`, `time`, `milliseconds`)
VALUES
    (841, 20, 1, 1, '1:38.109', 98109),
    (841, 20, 2, 1, '1:33.006', 93006),
    (843, 20, 3, 1, '1:32.713', 92713)

Open in new window

select
l.*
from lapTimes l
inner join (
        select
              raceId
            , driverId
            , min(milliseconds) milliseconds
        from lapTimes
        group by
              raceId
            , driverId
  ) m on l.raceId = m.raceId and l.driverId = m.driverId
      and l.milliseconds = m.milliseconds
;

| raceId | driverId | lap | position |     time | milliseconds |
|--------|----------|-----|----------|----------|--------------|
|    841 |       20 |   2 |        1 | 1:33.006 |        93006 |
|    843 |       20 |   3 |        1 | 1:32.713 |        92713 |

Open in new window

     
select
      raceId
    , driverId
    , sum(milliseconds) / 1000 race_seconds
from lapTimes
group by
      raceId
    , driverId
;
| raceId | driverId | race_seconds |
|--------|----------|--------------|
|    841 |       20 |      191.115 |
|    843 |       20 |       92.713 |

Open in new window



select
  `time`
, left(`time`,locate(':',`time`)-1) mins
, substr(`time`,locate(':',`time`)+1,2)  secs
, right(`time`, length(`time`) - locate('.',`time`)) hundedths
, milliseconds / 1000
from lapTimes

|     time | mins | secs | hundedths | milliseconds / 1000 |
|----------|------|------|-----------|---------------------|
| 1:38.109 |    1 |   38 |       109 |              98.109 |
| 1:33.006 |    1 |   33 |       006 |              93.006 |
| 1:32.713 |    1 |   32 |       713 |              92.713 |

Paul Maxwell is right: it would be helpful to know data types of your columns and more general information about your environment.

I'm going to assume that your milliseconds column represents the milliseconds elapsed for the lap in question, and I'm going to assume that it is an integer (or other numeric) column. That being the case, does this query give you what you need?

select der.raceId, lt.driverId, der.fastestLap
	from F1database.lapTimes as lt
	join (
		select lt.raceId, min(lt.milliseconds) as fastestLap
			from F1database.lapTimes as lt
			group by lt.raceId
		) der
	on lt.raceId = der.raceId
		and lt.milliseconds = der.fastestLap
	order by lt.raceId

Yep, I'm guessing we ignore the driverId, Paul. On the other hand, until we hear back from James we're just making our best guesses as to what he's really looking for. :-)
