The FIA have confirmed they are investigating the incident with the driver's safety in mind.
However, given the huge costs involved of staging the race in Vegas, many are understandably disappointed with how the situation has unfolded.
F1 star Carlos Sainz Jr suffered a blow to his vehicle during the Las Vegas Grand Prix first practice
Those watching in Vegas booed and jeered when they learned first practice would be cancelled.
And some fans on social media have now called for the Las Vegas Grand Prix to be scrapped and removed from the calendar as a result of the issues in Sin City.
"That was pathetic," said one user. "USA Only needs one race!! Keep COTA (as that one is actually enjoyable) and scrap the others."
A second said: "Scrap #LasVegasGP and bring back Sepang, Hockenheim, Istanbul and please, Kyalami."
"Incredible how Liberty Media spent $400 million dollars and they don't consider this. The people who buy their ticket must feel scammed," stated a third.
A fourth user raged: "This is fast turning into a circus."
And a fifth said: "What a joke."
To make matters worse, F1 fans have now been banned from attending second practice.
A statement was released that read: "Due to logistical considerations for our fans and our staff, we have made the determination that we will be closing all Las Vegas Grand Prix fan areas at 1:30AM PT.
"We look forward to welcoming fans back later today for exciting Fp3 and qualifying sessions."
And that decision has also sparked a backlash online.
One fan expressed their anger by saying: "Ok now THAT is ridiculous."
"Sad for the few people that actually bought a ticket," added a second.
A third weighed in by saying: "Joke of a Grand Prix. Cash is king."
A fourth said: "It just keeps getting weirder and weirder..."
And a fifth reacted to that development by saying: "This is insane."
