F1 bans three key colours from Sphere during Vegas GP action
The Las Vegas Sphere will be in operation during the track action for the duration of the F1 event, with measures taken to avoid distracting the drivers. The display will not show anything that could be misinterpreted or confuse the drivers, such as the red, yellow, and blue colors they look for on the light panels at the side of the track. The F1 organization has rented the Sphere and surrounding land for the event, causing U2 to temporarily pause their residency at the venue. The Sphere’s Exosphere, the world’s largest LED screen, has been sold for advertising and promotional spots to help recoup F1’s investment. The owners of the Sphere have worked with the FIA and F1 to ensure there are no issues during track action, testing various colors and content to comply with requirements and avoid distractions for the drivers.
