Formula 1 | Vettel would rather go to Bathurst than Las Vegas

Vettel would prefer to go to Bathurst (...)

Sebastian Vettel would rather race in Bathurst, otherwise known as the famous and challenging Mount Panorama circuit in Australia, than in Las Vegas.

Formula 1 owner Liberty Media has paid $240 million for land in Las Vegas that will house the F1 paddock for the Grand Prix to be held on the legendary « Strip » from 2023.

« They are trying to grow their business, our business, and the fact that they are investing to build Formula 1 – you can only applaud them for that, » said McLaren CEO Zak Brown.

The quadruple world champion, however, is less impressed.

« To be honest, I went to Vegas, » comments the German.

« I didn’t really like it. I think it’s too dense and most people misbehave. »

« I would rather go to Bathurst – take the money we put in Vegas and invest it in great tracks that already exist and bring them up to F1 standards. »

« Bathurst in an F1, it would be a real challenge. I think this circuit is a monster. I’ve never been there but, one day, I hope to go there and experience it with a good car, » concludes the Aston Martin F1 driver.
