Wow: Lewis Hamilton gets Las Vegas GP ban as Mercedes F1 chief Toto Wolff puts his foot down

Mercedes will be banking on Lewis Hamilton this weekend as he attempts to seize second spot in the F1 standings from Sergio Perez but Toto Wolff appears to have already cashed out ahead of the Las Vegas GP

F1 rolls into Nevada for the penultimate race of the 2023 campaign. It is the first time that the city will host the sport since 1982, with the race taking place on the Las Vegas Strip Circuit.

This season’s winnings have already been cashed out to Dutchman Max Verstappen. Nevertheless, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff will hope that Lewis Hamilton still has an ace to play as he attempts to overtake Red Bull ’s Sergio Perez in the driver’s standings.

While Wolff will be keeping a close eye on the track, he is ensuring that there are no further distractions in Sin City by banning everyone from taking a spin on any roulette tables throughout the weekend. Speaking to Motorsport.com Spain, he said: “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 organising this race. I don’t think I’m the only one 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.”
