F1 fans tear down view-blocking screens during Las Vegas GP
The Las Vegas GP race had controversy surrounding it even before the weekend began. View-blocking filters were installed on pedestrian bridges, preventing people without tickets from seeing the track. Local residents tried to remove these filters, but they were replaced with cage-like structures that covered the bridges’ upper elements. Shops along the Strip were also prohibited from selling glass items during specific times to prevent anything dangerous from reaching the track. View-blocking screens were added to fences along the track’s perimeter, but some fans managed to tear through them to get a glimpse of the track. Despite these incidents, no safety concerns were raised regarding fan behavior during the race. Additionally, the race faced delays and issues during FP1 due to a concrete failure, leading to lengthy delays and fans being removed from the venue.
