Formula 1 teams and drivers have called for changes to the Las Vegas Grand Prix schedule in the wake of
The street circuit in Las Vegas implemented road closures for local traffic to minimize disruption to residents. The event had late session start times and a Saturday night race, adding to the spectacle and glamour of the sport. However, the weekend had a tentative start due to the cancellation of FP1 after a water valve cover destroyed Carlos Sainz’s Ferrari. This caused delays in the schedule, which was already challenging for the European-based teams who now face a 12-hour time zone change for the season finale in Abu Dhabi. Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner called for lessons to be learned from the brutal weekend and suggested shifting on-track activities earlier in the evening for a more comfortable event for the staff. Ferrari boss Fred Vasseur and AlphaTauri driver Daniel Ricciardo also supported the idea of earlier session start times.
