F1 fans have expressed their disappointment at being ejected from the grandstands ahead of second practice at the Las Vegas Grand Prix.
The police cleared out the grandstands before the start of FP2 due to a two-and-a-half-hour delay caused by drain cover fixes. The opening practice was cancelled after just eight minutes when Carlos Sainz hit a loose water valve cover, resulting in damage to his car and Esteban Ocon’s Alpine. Fans waited patiently for up to five hours only to be told to leave at 1:30 am local time, reportedly due to staff contract expiration. This unexpected turn of events left fans disappointed and frustrated after spending money on travel and tickets. Despite initial optimism, no further practice took place after the initial 10 minutes.
