Formula 1 unveils the new layout of the Las Vegas Grand Prix circuit

formula 1 added a third American race to its annual roster following the decision to introduce the Las Vega Grand Prix for an upcoming season.

Another American Grand Prixscheduled to take place in Miami is set to have its debut race this year.

Formula 1 President Stefano Domenicali said: “This is an incredible moment for Formula 1, demonstrating the tremendous appeal and growth of our sport with a third race in the United States.

“Las Vegas is a destination known around the world for its excitement, hospitality, thrills and of course the famous Strip.

“There is no better place for Formula 1 racing than the global entertainment capital of the world and we can’t wait to be there next year.”

The deal for the track is a three-year deal after years of trying to get a race on the famous Vegas Strip.

The Miami Grand Prix is ​​expected to sell out, reflecting America’s appetite for an additional race, the third after the original in Texas.

The sport is believed to be increasing in popularity. The 2021 Austin GP is said to have seen 400,000 entries over the weekend, with 140,000 in attendance for Sunday’s race.

It is believed that interest in the sport in the US has been greatly boosted by its widespread popularity Netflix Drive To Survive series that has captivated audiences around the world who wouldn’t necessarily call themselves F1 fans.

What will the route look like?

The track will be 3.8 miles long and will have 14 corners.

The route is expected to take 50 laps past some of the city’s famous attractions, including casinos and hotels like Caesars Palace, the Bellagio and the Venetian.

The new track is also expected to be very fast – the official F1 site claims the new track will have an average speed comparable to Italy’s Autodromo Nazionale Monza at 212mph.

It features three main straights, including a single long main straight, as well as a high-speed corner section and chicane.

When is the first Las Vegas Grand Prix?

The first Las Vega Grand Prix takes place in November of the 2023 season, which means fans will have to wait a while before they can see this mesmerizing spectacle.

Somewhat unusually, the race is expected to take place on a Saturday evening, meaning the UK race will be viewable in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Has there ever been a Las Vega GP?

While the Las Vegas GP feels fairly new, it has happened in the past.

The city hosted two Grands Prix in the 1980s, but they were not held on the Strip but in the parking lot of the Caesars Palace Hotel.

Will Las Vegas give way to another Grand Prix?

At the time of writing, the Las Vegas GP is not expected to be added at the expense of other races.

Because the Concord Agreement, which is valid until 2025, currently allows 24 races in one year.

The 2022 season is expected to have a record 23 races, but that means there’s still room for one more circuit.

Are other places in the running for a new F1 track?

Speaking to Sky Sports, Domenicali said: “Besides America and China, I think there is potential to be in Africa soon too.

“The interest there is great. This is certainly another area that has so far been missing from the geography of our calendar.”
