The Las Vegas Grand Prix street circuit incorporates a long stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard in what has instantly become one of the fastest races on the Formula One calendar, with top speeds in excess of 215 mph. The track, which features a blend of long straightaways and fast sweepers, wraps around the Sphere, a newly opened entertainment venue just off the Vegas Strip.
Veteran Los Angeles Times photographer Myung J. Chun has captured many of the most colorful moments from the Las Vegas Grand Prix weekend so far from his trackside vantage point. Check out some of his top photos below.
Bruno Fernandes' decision to let Marcus Rashford take Manchester United's penalty against Everton on Sunday paid off, but "could have backfired spectacularly" according to ESPN's Mark Odgen. The United captain usually takes Manchester United's spot-kicks, but handed the ball to Rashford at Goodison Park to give him a chance to score only his second Premier League goal of the season. "It was 1-0 and United results this season haven’t been great even though they are sixth and six points off the top of the table," Ogden told BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily.
