Sin City put on a show this weekend as Formula One raced on The Strip for the first time.

While the racing was exciting which saw Max Verstappen score his 18th win of the season everything else was a bit much.

The weekend started off under a cloud with the first practice session been abandoned after just eight minutes.

Track repairs were carried out meaning that there was a delay to the start of Free Practice 2.

Fans were asked to leave the grandstands which has resulted in a class action law suit been filed against the Las Vegas Grand Prix and Formula One on behalf of fans.

A statement was released by Formula One and the Las Vegas Grand Prix however there was no apology from the sport.

Fans affected by the issue on Thirsday night were than offered a $200 merchandise voucher.

The trackside merchandise areas were selling Ferrari hoodies for $388.

The tickets prices were extortionate and renewal prices which began on Sunday have a deposit for general admission and grandstand tickets $250.

Shared hospitality deposits are $1,000 per ticket while deposits for private hospitality are $5,000 per ticket.

The timing of the race was also tricky with the race start at 10PM local time which is far from ideal for fans.

Not only are race tickets horrendously expensive, so are hotel tickets.

There are plenty of lessons that be learned from this weekend’s race.
