F1 returns to Las Vegas

F1 announced that it will hold the third race in the US – Grand Prix Las Vegas – from the 2023 season. The world’s largest car race took place in Las Vegas in 1981 and 1982, but then stopped because of criticism about the organization. At that time, the racetrack was built temporarily in the parking lot of Caesars Palace casino.

This time, F1 confirmed that it will cooperate with many casinos and resorts to build a race track as well as promote the event next year.

F1 also announced that the GP Las Vegas leg will take place on Saturday night, instead of Sunday night like other stages. This will be the first time F1 has raced on a Saturday night since 1985. Las Vegas is the third venue to host F1 in the US, after Miami and Austin.

GP Las Vegas will be built in the style of a city track, with a length of 6.1 km each round with 14 corners and a long straight track that allows drivers to reach speeds of 338 km / h. The race will last 50 laps.

“This is a great moment for F1, demonstrating the growth and appeal of the sport,” said F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali. “Las Vegas is a destination known worldwide for its excitement, hospitality, thrills and, of course, the Las Vegas Strip. There’s no better venue than the entertainment capital of the world to host an event. F1 leg”.

The Las Vegas Strip is a approximately 6.1-kilometer stretch of South Las Vegas Boulevard, located in Clark County, Nevada. This place is home to many hotels, casinos and resorts.

Besides Las Vegas, F1 also announced that it will return to Qatar and China in 2023. The Chinese GP has not been held since 2019 due to Covid-19. However, although Domenicali has expressed interest in increasing the number of races to 30, the FIA ​​and F1 World Sports Federation have agreed to only organize a maximum of 24 races per year. That means some races in 2022 will not be continued next year.
