The Las Vegas GP attracted a lot of criticism, especially in the city itself. The Las Vegas Review-Journal, for example, had nothing good to say about the prestigious race.
"This whole Formula 1 experiment was madness of the highest order. The track layout was a mess, an absolute nightmare. But the big problem is that the city is dead. Whether it was the outrageously high prices at the start or the fear of a chaotic weekend, people have stayed away," the paper wrote.
The British Telegraph did not see it completely negatively. "Formula One still has a lot to learn from its first foray into the City of Sin, but Sunday has given it a platform to build on in the years to come."
Las Vegas Review-Journal: Big events are worth the inconvenience. But is that true for Formula 1? This whole Formula 1 experiment has been madness of the highest order. Setting up the track was a mess, an absolute nightmare. But the big problem is that the city is dead. Whether it was the outrageously high prices at the beginning or the fear of a chaotic weekend - people stayed away.
Washington Post: Fast weddings. Cocktails in driver's shoes. A class action lawsuit. The only thing predictable about the Formula One debut in Las Vegas was the winner. It was a celebration of an excessive sport in the most excessive of cities.
Guardian: After a troubled week for Formula One, after days of fear and loathing in Las Vegas, the sport has finally delivered on the city's streets, and to such effect that the big gamble has really paid off. The bank always wins here, and so it was clear that Max Verstappen could win the inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix, but he had to fight hard for it, which meant the racing matched the show and provided the spectacle Formula 1 craves.
Telegraph: Formula One still has a lot to learn from its first foray into the City of Sin, but Sunday gave it a platform to build on in the years to come.

Telegraaf: All's well that ends well for Formula 1 and the hugely hyped race in Las Vegas. After days of negative press, the main course was a complete success. Even Max Verstappen, who once again stole the show on the tarmac in his Elvis jumpsuit, was suddenly much more positive after his previous harsh criticism.
AD: Max Verstappen finally gets to play himself again in a show that wins over friend and foe alike. The dream marriage of sport and show was finally convincing after a number of teething troubles.
Gazzetta dello Sport: Perhaps something can still be salvaged for Ferrari this season without the glamour. In Las Vegas, it finally came down to a duel again and Red Bull has not had an easy life. Leclerc shows the best Ferrari of this year. The duel between Leclerc and Verstappen puts on a show from the very first corner.
Corriere dello Sport: Leclerc showed in Las Vegas what he can do when his car really works. In a thrilling duel, he fought for victory against Red Bull and proved that he can both attack and defend.

La Repubblica: Duels, overtaking manoeuvres and plenty of speed: Las Vegas saw one of the most beautiful races of the year, with Verstappen as the winner: 53 successes like Vettel, the 18th success of the year. But Verstappen has to fight with all his muscles like you haven't seen for a long time.
