They were meant to block the views of the Las Vegas Grand Prix. But some Formula 1 fans would not be denied.

Fans tore down screens on Saturday night to get a glimpse of the inaugural F1 race, which saw Max Verstappen become the first ever Las Vegas Grand Prix champion.

The screens were installed to obstruct the view of the Grand Prix course, but caused controversy.

The race was the culmination of an up-and-down weekend that started with a loose manhole cover canceling the first practice session, but the Las Vegas Grand Prix delivered an exciting race for fans to take in.

The race drew 315,000 fans, including actors, athletes, musicians and other celebrities.
