Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali and Las Vegas Grand Prix CEO Renee Wilm have explained the issues that occurred on the opening night of track running, but not apologized, saying, “It happens, and …
about the ability to safely and efficiently transport fans out of the circuit at such a late hour. We wanted to ensure that everyone could get home in a timely manner and without any complications.
Third, due to the unexpected delay and the extended duration of the second Free Practice session, there were challenges in maintaining the necessary staff and resources to support the fan areas, such as concessions, restrooms, and security.
While we understand the disappointment and frustration of the fans who were asked to leave, we prioritized their safety and well-being. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and appreciate their understanding.
Moving forward, we will be working closely with the Las Vegas Grand Prix to implement measures that will prevent similar issues from occurring in the future and to improve the overall fan experience at the event.
Thank you to everyone involved for their patience and cooperation during this challenging situation. We remain committed to delivering a safe and enjoyable Formula 1 experience for all.”
