Daniel Ricciardo believes Formula 1 should ideally try and “remain accessible” to everybody amid the extortionate ticket pricing for this
The Las Vegas Strip Circuit is hosting its first Formula 1 race in 41 years, making it the third round to be held in the United States this season. The opening ceremony featured musical acts and the introduction of drivers to fans. However, there were many unattended seats, possibly due to tickets being available at reduced prices. The cheapest general admission tickets originally cost around $500, which is significantly higher than other races. Driver Daniel Ricciardo acknowledges that this excludes a large portion of F1 fans and hopes that attendance can be more accessible for people from all backgrounds. While some drivers, like Max Verstappen, see the event as more of a show than a sporting event, Ricciardo is excited about the race and believes the schedule will remain similar to other races.
