F1 LIVE: Max Verstappen fuming at Las Vegas GP as Lewis Hamilton’s future cleared up | F1 | Sport

Max Verstappen was not afraid to hold back when asked for his thoughts on the Las Vegas Grand Prix launch party.

The Red Bull star admitted that he felt “like a clown” during the opening ceremony and would prefer instead to focus on the racing.

“99 per cent show and one per cent sporting event,” Verstappen said. “I don’t have a lot of emotions to be honest, I just want to focus on the performance side of things, I don’t like all the things that are around, I know they are part of it, but it is not in my interest.

“[The track] is not very interesting], and I just want to do the best I can – there is no problem – but it’s not really my thing.

“If I like it or not, it is not up to me, but I am not going to fake it. I just voiced my opinion on positive and negative things, and that is just how I am.

“Some people like the show a bit more, I don’t like it at all. I grew up just looking at the performance side of things, and that is how I see it as well. I like to be in Vegas – but not so much for the racing.”
