Max Verstappen criticises Las Vegas GP as F1 drivers presented to crowd in ‘Hunger Games’ reveal

Formula 1 drivers were presented to the crowd in a “Hunger Games” reveal ahead of the Las Vegas Grand Prix.

Champion Max Verstappen criticised the lavish opening ceremony on Wednesday night (15 November), where he was introduced alongside Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez.
