    Sticky: Last of the clean up?

    Sticky: Complicated.

    OK I will try. Leclerc (Ferrari) was 2nd when Perez (Red bull) overtook Russel (Mercedes) into 3rd which would of swung second place in the constructors to Ferrari. The problem was that Perez had...

    Sticky: Was going along the Strip the best option?

    I wonder if it would of been better if they had developed the track close to the Strip but not as part of it ? They could of still used the 'Glitz and Glamour' of it all to create a spectacular...

    Sticky: At a more sedate pace!

    Did you keep it under 200mph ? It'll be interesting to know what it looks like tomorrow, probably like they hadn't been there and it's back to business as usual.

    Sticky: Race enthusiasts not high rollers.

    If I wanted to visit Las Vegas and was not an F1 fan then this weekend is the one I would avoid at all costs due to the inflated prices and inconvenience of the event. So despite all the money F1...

    It could be an entertaining race. I hope!! It'll be interesting to see if they all make it through turn one without incident. High adrenalin and low grip on cold tyres and all packed together could...

    Sticky: No room for common sense in regulations!

    The real crazy thing is that Carlos Sainz (the driver who hit the faulty drain cover) has been given a 10 grid place penalty because they have had to repair parts that were affected by said drain...

    This really is strange and I doubt the drivers will like it at all. Over the weekend they lay down rubber during practice and qualifying and get used to the grip available. They don't enjoy going...
