Formula 1 drivers have criticised the Las Vegas Grand Prix for being more about the show than the racing itself
hat the return of F1 to Las Vegas is a big opportunity for the sport to promote itself on a global scale, but there are concerns about the balance between spectacle and sport. Drivers like Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz feel that the weekend is more focused on the show than the actual sporting event. They believe that the schedule has become too repetitive and overpacked, with more obligations and events added to race weekends. Lando Norris shares their sentiment and expresses his preference to focus solely on driving and racing. However, Fernando Alonso takes a more diplomatic stance and suggests that the return to Las Vegas justifies the expanded schedule. Overall, there are mixed opinions about the return of F1 to Las Vegas and the emphasis on the show aspect of the sport.
