Sky F1 pundit Karun Chandhok has claimed that the true success of the Las Vegas Grand Prix relies on captivating fans from both America and around the world, igniting global discussions about the spectacle.
The Las Vegas Grand Prix is poised to attract thousands of fans as we approach the race weekend later this week.
The highly anticipated Las Vegas Grand Prix, being a new circuit on the calendar, promises to be a massive spectacle, drawing significant attention and attracting numerous celebrities.
“You’ve got to have the celebrities,” said Chandhok on the Sky F1 Podcast. “You’ve got to have all of America talking about this, you’ve got to have the whole world talking about how F1 is the biggest show in town.
“Having the spectators enjoying a good event, having the fans on TV around the world watching it going ‘ooh that looks cool, I’d like to go next year’, I think is really important.”
“To me I think that it would be a success, if A) we have a good race on track and B) we get lots of people here in Vegas, here in America, but also all around the world talking about what a good event it looked like on TV.”
