Pirelli Motorsport Director Mario Isola is expecting the maiden Las Vegas Grand Prix to provide a “major technical challenge” for
The Las Vegas Grand Prix is expected to be a highly anticipated event, but concerns have arisen over the forecasted low temperatures. Early forecasts indicated temperatures as low as six degrees Celsius during the race, but recent data suggests temperatures just above 10 degrees. Racing under floodlights will make it challenging for teams to bring the Pirelli rubber up to operating temperature. The Las Vegas Strip circuit, with a length of 6.12 kilometers, has never been driven before, posing technical challenges. The absence of support races and reopening of streets to normal traffic will further complicate grip for drivers. The C3, C4, and C5 softest compounds have been selected by Pirelli for the race weekend. This race will be a step into the unknown for everyone involved, with a cold street circuit and uncertainties about tyre wear and grip.
