‘It’s like Monte Carlo on steroids’: Formula One fans react to £1bn Las Vegas Grand Prix being added to the calendar… with some against the idea of another ‘giant gimmick’ race in the United States

Formula One in its barest form is just motor racing and, with a bit of luck, competitive enough to provide excellent entertainment. They said: ‘I think Vegas fits F1 culture so well especially for a US city. Another fan also appeared to hint towards the gambling nature of Vegas in their assessment, but noted that in a world championship there is still no race taking place in the African continent. Another feared the race could be a huge let-down hinting at past F1 projects in Las Vegas from the early 1980s that ended in failure and that the whole concept was a ‘giant gimmick’. But why does the US now have 3 races (rhetorical, we all know the answer)! And I think this could end up being a giant gimmick rather than a decent race. Vegas doesn’t have much of a track record in hosting decent races!’.
