    Hi guys,
    It seems that a lot of people get confused with the race times because of different timezone. I'd like to suggest that all races have a GMT time (It seems we do that already), but for users who have set his/her location, the website should display the time on that user timezone as well.
    E.g. I'm in Japan, so If I'm reading about a race in the US, the page could display something like this:

    Practice: 23:00 GMT | 08:00 JST (50 minutes)
    Qualifying: 23:50 GMT | 08:50 JST (10 minutes)
    Formation Lap + Race: 00:00 GMT | 09:00 JST (40 minutes)

    I believe this is a simple addition to make and it would help many people around here. :)

    You can also add an extra clock if you are using Windows, as described HERE.

    Implementing it in the text itself without using a pre-built form is quite difficult, @Dave Stephenson would have to fill me in here tho.
