Christian Horner has called on F1 to adjust the schedule for the Las Vegas Grand Prix amid concerns engineers and mechanics are struggling to cope with the gruelling timings.
The criticism of F1’s return to Las Vegas focused on the late start times, causing inconvenience for both teams and fans. The delay in FP2 on Friday resulted in the session starting at 2:30 am local time, while qualifying took place at midnight. These later timings were intended to accommodate the European audience due to the nighttime race. However, it proved challenging for the teams, especially considering the next race happening in Abu Dhabi, which is 12 hours ahead of Las Vegas. Christian Horner, after Max Verstappen’s victory, expressed the need for scheduling changes, even if it doesn’t suit the European audience and suggested running the races a bit earlier in the evening.
