Vegas F1 fans file lawsuit

Formula One fans upset after being forced to the leave the Las Vegas Grand Prix before the second practice session filed a class-action lawsuit against the event and its owner, Liberty Media, seeking at least $30,000 (U.S.) in damages. Those who bought tickets saw just nine minutes late Thursday night before Carlos Sainz Jr.’s car ran over a water valve cover, damaging his Ferrari and resulting in a 2½-hour delay. Race officials offered single-night ticket holders a $200 discount at the gift shop as compensation, but not three-day pass holders.
