Las Vegas Grand Prix pit lane | A striking layout

As F1 gears up for the inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix, concerns have been raised by fans on social media over the design of the pit lane exit.

The sport tackles what is set to be a spectacular layout for the first time this weekend with the night race to be backlit by the world-famous hotels and casinos on The Strip, as well as the new Sphere.

But there is a potential issue for the circuit's first event as a number of questions have been asked by fans on social media over the design of the pit exit.

Turn 1 is a long left-hander that double-backs on itself and with the exit forcing cars to rejoin midway through the corner, slower cars will find themselves on the racing line.

Low temperatures make it extra linky

Further complications will come when the drivers tackle the forecasted low temperatures, which are expected to be below 10 degrees Celsius.

Chaos could be caused as drivers attempt to rejoin the race track mid-race with tyres well below the temperature of rivals still on circuit, so what do you think? Should changes be made?
