The Las Vegas Strip Circuit will make its Formula 1 debut this weekend by Max Verstappen admits that he is not impressed by the layout of the track.
Max Verstappen expressed his disinterest in the Las Vegas Strip Circuit, which will host its first Formula 1 race this weekend. Despite F1’s investment and expansion in the United States with three races this year, Verstappen finds the layout of the track unexciting compared to his preference for high-speed corners. He believes that street circuits, especially with the heavy new cars, lack excitement and low grip does not help. Verstappen acknowledged that driving through the strip would look great, but overall, the layout itself lacks excitement. He also criticized the opening ceremony, feeling like a “clown.” Although Red Bull has been defeated only once this season, Verstappen couldn’t predict if Las Vegas conditions would suit them and emphasized the importance of feeling the conditions, building grip, and adjusting accordingly.
