Right now it is suggesting that the Chinese GP starts in 15 hours and 22 minutes.

 

Six hours out...

Have you clicked on "Convert to your timezone".

Before clicking on this, it suggests the race actually was run about 8 hours ago.

It's not the timing thing at the bottom right, it's the tickertape at the top.  Now saying 14 hours 47 minutes.

 

And the timezone would be irrelevant, unless it was starting the countdown in mine and finishing it in China.

Yup it is wrong.

 

I'm in the same timezone as the race, it says 11 hours 30 minutes to go, while it's 9:30 here and the race starts at 15:00.

 

And the ticker was already wrong for me at least since Bahrain.

Just to follow up, the starting date for the event is wrong in the Javascript on the page

 

 

var eventdate = new Date("20 April 2014 13:00 GMT");

 

Dunno if that is all, but its a start

Edit seems the be the only issue

 

The race starts at 15:00 GMT+8 But since the starting time is given 2 hours earlier, that makes for 6 hours.

I was caught out by this as well. When I clicked to change to my time zone, it read Sunday at 15:00. There was only 16 laps left when I, by chance, realized it was on.

Next race starting time seems to be wrong too.

 

11 May 2014 12:00 GMT

 

Because that's the time set in the Javascript code for the next race.

 

The offical site says it's 11 May 2014 14:00. But Catalunya is not GMT-2 or?

CET in the summer is GMT+2, so 14:00 CET is 12:00 GMT - so the starting time is correct.
