sport news Lewis Hamilton is banned from heading to the casinos ahead of the Las Vegas ... trends now
Formula One will return to Sin City for the first time in 41 years this weekend for the penultimate race of the season, with Hamilton looking to improve after finishing eighth in the Brazilian Grand Prix last time out.
Max Verstappen has already won the world title, meaning Hamilton's best case scenario this season is to finish behind him in second spot - which is currently occupied by his Red Bull team-mate Perez.
'I've never been to Las Vegas, but we'll do our best to make sure everyone in the team stays away from the casinos,' he told MotorSport.com. 'I don't gamble and I'll make sure no one else gambles either!'
