Formula 1’s new glamour race – the Las Vegas Grand Prix – ticks the boxes that its processional Monaco counterpart no longer can, says Glenn Freeman
keep it as a race on the F1 calendar. Las Vegas offers a modern alternative that can provide the commercial benefit and spectacle that Monaco no longer delivers. The business world has evolved, and Monaco’s traditional role in securing sponsorship deals is no longer relevant. F1 has outgrown the streets of Monte Carlo and the lack of overtaking opportunities make the race pointless. While Monaco holds historical significance, it is time to move on and embrace the vibrant atmosphere and commercial potential of Las Vegas. Miami, on the other hand, has also failed to live up to expectations and should be considered for removal. The world moves fast, and F1 should adapt accordingly.
