The Sphere in Las Vegas will be a noticeable addition to the backdrop of this weekend’s Formula 1 track and measures have been taken to ensure it doesn’t distract the drivers.
In order to avoid distracting the drivers, Formula 1 has banned the colors red, yellow, and blue from being displayed on the Las Vegas Sphere during on-track action this weekend. The Sphere is a venue that opened earlier this year and is famous for its unique design, standing 112 meters high and 157 meters wide. It is made up of 1.2 million LED lights. The venue will still operate throughout the race weekend, but the specific colors mentioned will not be displayed when cars are on the track. This is to prevent drivers from misinterpreting the trackside LED panels, which use those colors to provide live information on circuit conditions.
