Use the sportdb command line tool to build your own formula1.db copy from the plain text fixtures. Example:

Step 1: Get a copy of the world.db fixtures

$ git clone git://

Step 2: Get a copy the formula1.db fixtures

$ git clone git://

Step 3: Let's build the formula1.db

$ sportdb setup --include ./formula1.db --worldinclude ./world.db --dbname formula1.db

That's it. See the sportdb command line tool project for more.
