F1 to rename the Las Vegas GP ‘paddock’ building due to a past tragedy

The term ‘Paddock’ is used in Formula 1 to refer to the pit or the garage building. However, the perpetrator of the horrific 2017 91 Harvest Festival shootings, which killed 60 people in Las Vegas, is named ‘Stephen Paddock’. Formula 1 officials have been requested to dismiss the term ‘Paddock’ for the Las Vegas GP and thus rename the garage building.

“Las Vegas Grand Prix is sensitive and has been recently informed about the correlation of the use of the word Paddock on their building site,” said Stephanie Allen, one of the officials representing the Grand Prix. Formula 1 officials have insisted that their intent wasn’t to dismiss the sensitivity and sorrow felt amongst the Vegas and Racing community alike. The officials highlighted how the word Paddock is used for every race.

The officials have now announced that they are looking to rename the Paddock building. It’s not known, as of now, what they will rename it to.
