Lewis Hamilton believes that the Las Vegas Grand Prix proved its critics wrong after the event’s return to the Formula
Despite facing criticism and logistical issues, the F1 race in Las Vegas proved to be one of the best races of the season, with Max Verstappen securing his 18th victory. Verstappen had to overcome a penalty, two Safety Car interventions, and damage from contact with George Russell. The return to Las Vegas was met with negativity, but Lewis Hamilton defended the event, praising the track and the amount of overtaking opportunities it provided. Hamilton himself had a challenging race, starting on the Hard tire and experiencing contact with Carlos Sainz and a puncture from battling with Oscar Piastri. Despite this, he was able to recover and finish seventh.
