The good, bad and ugly from Formula One’s Las Vegas Grand Prix

After years of anticipation about its race in Las Vegas, Formula One raced in Sin City over the weekend for the first time. Despite a rocky start, the event earned good reviews. After starting in second behind Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen won the inaugural event — his 18th victory this season and Red Bull’s 20th.

Here’s a look at the good, bad and ugly from F1’s showiest weekend.

THE GOOD

The racing was fantastic. Many feared the Las Vegas Grand Prix would be a dud because of extreme temperatures for racing —fortunately, it was anything but. The cold track provided just enough chaos to keep things interesting — Fernando Alonso lost grip into a 360 spin before the first corner — but it didn’t prevent cars from racing competitively. 

The race featured more overtakes than just about every race this season. The track looks far better suited to wheel-to-wheel racing than its street-circuit sisters in Monaco, Singapore and Baku. That’s excellent news for longtime F1 fans, who will be able to enjoy races in Vegas for the next decade.
