Formula 1 and the Las Vegas Grand Prix are being urged to move the race earlier next year or drivers and people working at the event will be “wrecked”
a strong call for Formula 1 and the Las Vegas Grand Prix to schedule the race earlier next year. This demand stems from the late timing of this year’s race, which caused exhaustion and fatigue among drivers and F1 personnel. The race took place at 10 pm on a Saturday, with media activities and practice sessions held late in the day as well. Jet lag from traveling to the west coast of the US further worsened the sleep deprivation. The decision to delay the second practice session only exacerbated the issue. Some drivers, including Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen, expressed concerns about the demanding schedule and suggested finding a different date for the Las Vegas race. Additionally, next year’s schedule reveals a challenging triple-header, which further highlights the need for a change in timing. Ultimately, the aim is to ensure the well-being and performance of all participants in the race.
