Apology denied

Las Vegas GP bosses have faced backlash from fans after a manhole cover incident during practice led to the cancellation of the session. Despite demands for refunds, F1 organizers responded with a statement that failed to offer an apology.

"It happens"

The statement released by the CEO of Las Vegas Grand Prix and the CEO of Formula One stated, "We have all been to events that have been cancelled because of factors like weather or technical issues. It happens, and we hope people will understand."

Safety first

The statement also emphasized that the safety and security of drivers, employees, and fans is the top priority for Formula One. They explained that the incident occurred when a water valve cover broke, leading to a precautionary measure to remove and fill all water valve covers on the track.

Delayed practice and disappointed fans

The incident caused a delay in the start of the second practice session, which began at 2:30 AM. However, fans were ejected from their seats an hour before due to staff contractual hours. F1 organizers made the decision to send fans home to ensure public safety and security officials, transportation employees, and hospitality staff could fulfill their duties.
