Ferrari Team Principal Fred Vasseur has insisted he ‘trusts’ F1
over the addition of the Las Vegas Grand Prix to the calendar. The
Nevada-based street circuit will host the city’s first race since
the Caesars Palace Grand Prix in 1982, which was ultimately cut
from the calendar well ahead of its contract-expiration date. Teams
will face a number of challenges, not least the cool temperatures
forecast that will provide a test in terms of tyre warm-up – four
degrees Celsius is expected to be the most extremely low ambient
temperature for some time in the sport. The race will also take
place on Saturday night local time in order for the event to fully
encapsulate the atmosphere of the setting down The Strip as the
world-famous hotels and casinos create a stunning backdrop. ‘Vegas
will be difficult’ “Vegas will be difficult but I think everybody
is anticipating that it will be difficult,” explained Vasseur when
speaking to media including . “It will be a night
race, conditions look to be very cold. It is a new track with a
kind of special layout.” On whether he had any concerns over the
smooth running of the event, Vasseur replied: “We trust them [F1].
“If you have a look at Miami last year, it went pretty well on the
racing side, the track was well-prepared and I hope it will be the
same with Vegas.”
