The Las Vegas Grand Prix feeds straight into the finale in Abu Dhabi, with a significant time-zone shift involved paddock personnel. Sergio Perez has a way to solve that problem.
Red Bull driver Sergio Perez has called for the Las Vegas Grand Prix to be the Formula 1 season-finale to avoid significant timezone shifts. The final two rounds of the season, held in Las Vegas and Abu Dhabi, have a 12-hour time difference, causing jet lag for drivers and others involved. Although the Vegas race will be moved to the first leg of a triple-header in 2024, the issue of timezone shifts will still persist. Perez suggested that making Vegas the last race of the season would be beneficial, as it would be closer to his hometown and would avoid the need for extensive travel to Abu Dhabi. Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen also supported the idea, expressing their concerns about the distances and race times involved.
