Ferrari asserts teams must trust F1 over Las Vegas success


Ferrari Team Principal Frederic Vasseur has stated that other teams must trust that Formula 1 will stage a successful event in Las Vegas.

Next weekend the sport will descend upon the Nevada city for the penultimate round of the campaign.

The Grand Prix will be staged on Saturday for the first time in almost 40 years and part of the track will feature the famous Las Vegas strip.

The event has been heavily marketed since its announcement with F1 promoting the race consistently throughout the year.

However, concerns have been raised over the event and te cold track temperatures that will be present due to the sessions taking place at late times.

“Sure, Vegas will be difficult but I think everybody is anticipating that it will be difficult,” Vasseur told media including RacingNews365.com.

“It will be more than a night race. It could be… I don’t know what.

“Conditions will be very, very cold but it’s a new truck with a kind of special layout.

“We have to take it as an opportunity to come back at Mercedes [in the Constructors’ Championship].

However, Vasseur is confident that the race weekend will be a success.

“We have to trust them. If you have a look at Miami last year, it went pretty well, at least on the racing side.

“The track was well prepared and it will be the same with Vegas.”
