Mercedes’ Mick Schumacher will be left disappointed at Las Vegas Grand Prix | F1 | Sport
Mick Schumacher’s plans may be disrupted ahead of this weekend’s Las Vegas Grand Prix. The German driver hinted that he was expecting trips to the casino when the event was first announced, but Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff has confirmed that none of his team will be gambling at the this event.
This is the first time F1 has ever raced on the streets of one of the world’s most iconic cities, and the first time since 1982 that it has visited in any capacity following the failed Caesars Palace Grand Prix experiment.
With a brand new pit building specially built for the circuit and a spectacular opening ceremony planned, this will be the marquee event of the season. That’s not where the fun stops for the drivers, though.
In the opening announcement video featuring a large selection of drivers on the grid, Schumacher said: “That’s crazy. I think we’ll get a few drivers in the casinos then – I’m one of them.”
Unfortunately for the 24-year-old, this is unlikely to come to fruition. Speaking to Motorsport.com Spain Regarding the upcoming race, Wolff said: “Like I said, I’ve never been to Las Vegas, but we’ll do our best to make sure everyone in the team stays away from the casinos – I can’t gamble while I ‘ Make sure no one else gambles either!’
He also offered some comments about the organization of the event, adding: “I think everyone is looking forward to the Las Vegas race. Racing in this city is comparable to climbing Everest, hats off to Liberty Media for doing this race organize.
“I don’t think I’m the only person in Formula One who has never been to this city, which is quite difficult to get around. We don’t know how to get from the hotel to the circuit and back, but I’m sure we’ll find a solution. I’m looking forward to the race.”
With Schumacher forced to focus on his Mercedes responsibilities this weekend, talks about his future will continue away from the team. The German driver recently dismissed the possibility of a career in Formula E and is likely to move into the World Endurance Championship.
Schumacher has already held talks and private testing with Alpine as he targets a seat in their Hypercar program for 2024. The 24-year-old has been absent from the F1 grid this season after losing his drive to Haas.
