Red Bull’s rivals don’t anticipate the side encountering a repeat of the slump it endured in Singapore during the inaugural
Formula 1 is returning to Las Vegas for the first time in 41 years with a street circuit that could rival the high speeds of Monza. The teams have brought low-downforce packages for this unique circuit, which is expected to have a low-grip track surface. The cold conditions increase the chances of a surprise result. Red Bull has dominated the season so far, but Lando Norris believes Max Verstappen should be considered the favorite for victory. Fernando Alonso and Sergio Perez, while showing improved form, do not expect to compete for the win and acknowledge the challenges posed by the track. Perez especially highlights the difficulty of maintaining tire temperature in the cooler conditions. Overall, the race in Las Vegas is expected to be unpredictable and different from anything we’ve seen this year.
