After a break of 41 years, the Formula 1 World Championship returns to Las Vegas. The first Las Vegas Grand Prix is scheduled for the 2023 season! This will be the third Grand Prix in the United States (the first United States Grand Prix in Austin, and the second entirely new Miami Grand Prix), where after the wild success of Formula 1: Drive to Survive from Netflix, the popularity of the royal race has increased significantly. By the way, the 4th season of Drive to Survive has already come out.
The Formula 1 Grand Prix took place in the City of Sins in 1981 and 1982, but then it was called the Caesars Palace Grand Prix and took place in the parking lot of the Caesar’s Palace Hotel. This time, the route will be paved through the streets of the city, including the legendary “Strip”. The race is planned as an evening race and will take place not on Sunday, but on Saturday, so for Ukrainians it will start on Sunday morning.
The length of the new route is 6.12 km. Racing distance – 50 laps. Fourteen turns and three straight lines are planned, including a long, almost two-kilometer straight line along the Strip, at the end of which the cars will accelerate to a speed of 342 km / h.
It looks very intriguing, let’s see how this, at first glance, simple route will give pilot a chance to overtake and fight each over. There is no calendar for the 2023 season yet (the 2022 season has just begun), so the exact dates of the Las Vegas Grand Prix are still unknown.
