Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, and a plethora of other celebrities were spotted at the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix, showcasing their love for high-speed cars on the famed Strip.
The highly anticipated event, which initially faced challenges, ultimately turned into a massive success, both in terms of the actual racing action and the A-list talent in attendance. Notable personalities such as David Beckham, Heidi Klum, Shaquille O’Neal, Paris Hilton, Cara Delevingne, Axl Rose, and Patrick Dempsey were seen on the track prior to the start of the race. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were seen sitting with Team Ferrari, donning headphones to listen to the drivers during the race.
Justin Bieber also played a significant role in the race, waving the chequered flag as Team Red Bull’s Max Verstappen crossed the finish line, marking his 18th victory of the season. Other top performers included Ferrari’s Charles LeClerc, who achieved a 2nd place finish, and Red Bull’s Sergio Perez, who secured the third spot on the podium.
The Las Vegas Grand Prix marked Formula 1’s return to the city since the 1982 Caesars Palace Grand Prix, and it quickly became one of the most talked-about races on the season’s schedule.
Despite its ultimate success, the race faced several challenges. Locals expressed displeasure over the months-long construction and traffic delays, while spectators were dismayed by the high ticket and hotel prices. Furthermore, during the first practice session, a drain hole cover flew up and damaged a car driven by Ferrari’s driver Carlos Sainz, adding to the event’s initial hurdles.
However, as the race unfolded, it delivered an exciting experience for both celebrity attendees and regular spectators, ensuring that everyone received their money’s worth, even though it’s safe to say that the celebrities themselves did not have to pay for the experience.
The star-studded event’s success was evidenced by the significant celebrity turnout and the thrilling racing action that took place on the track. With the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas as the backdrop, the Grand Prix lived up to its high expectations and exceeded them, leaving a lasting impression on both fans and the rich and famous who graced the event with their presence.
