Lewis Hamilton was impressed with the Las Vegas Grand Prix circuit following the first day of running in the city.
“It’s incredibly fast and a lot of fun,” he told Sky Sports F1. “I had so much fun today, I’m so glad we got to run again. Not a good FP1 but they did a good job to fix it.
“The car is OK. When we are all out on similar tyres we are not too far off. Everyone is having graining and people are running out of tyres but everyone is on a similar boat.”
Hamilton was then asked whether or not this was caused by the temperature or the track surface, to which he replied: “I think a combination of both.
“And we are really low downforce, so we are sliding a lot between the slow-speed corners and high-speed corners and you don’t have a huge amount of load because you need the straight line speed. Then the temperatures I’m sure or having a big effect.”
