On-track action at the Las Vegas Grand Prix hasn’t got off to a smooth start with FP1 abandoned due to loose manhole covers that inflicted damage on two cars in the opening minutes.
Christian Horner has urged Formula 1 to be flexible with its schedule following disruptions during practice in Las Vegas. The first session had to be abandoned due to loose manhole covers damaging cars. The second practice session has been delayed as the circuit is inspected for safety. Horner emphasized the importance of safety but expressed the desire for F1 to adjust its timetable accordingly. He suggested the possibility of extending the running time in FP3 and expressed confidence that the issue with the manhole covers would be resolved.
