Lance Stroll says drivers are “not trying to be Hollywood stars” following the mixed reviews for the opening ceremony of the F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix. A 30-minute music show was held on the grid on Wednesday night, with the ceremony culminating in the introduction of the 20 drivers to the audience.
Stroll was also one of several drivers who chose not to attend an event at the Wynn Hotel late Wednesday night that F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali had asked all drivers to attend. Ta. “It’s not my thing,” Stroll said of the ceremony. “We didn’t sign for this ceremony.” “We’re racing drivers. Yeah, in a way… I think sometimes we’re too Hollywood star-y. I just want to race cars.” “I don’t want to be a Hollywood star. I think it’s great for the sport to have us in a place like this, and expanding the American market is great for the team and for the business. “F1 needs to think about that. “This is a huge thing for the business, for the reputation of sponsors, to bring in more sponsors and hopefully get more American sponsors, to get three American sponsors. I hope that the race will take place, but in a way I don’t want a race like this to take place and lose the purity of F1. There has to be a balance.” Stroll also said that the timing Amid the confusion surrounding the event, he mistook the time for 2am on Wednesday and 2am on Thursday, causing him to miss the Aston Martin track walk. “I don’t even know what time it is. I’m just here. It’s kind of a weird schedule,” Stroll said.
