As the popularity of Formula 1 continues to grow in the United States, a third race in the country joins the calendar for 2023 in the form of the Las Vegas Grand Prix.

F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix 2023

After two races in the car park of the famous Caesars Palace in 1981 and 1982, Formula 1 cars will take to the famous strip in Las Vegas in 2023, where the Las Vegas Grand Prix will take place in November.

On the weekend before the Thanksgiving holiday, the F1 circus will descend on the gambling city.

It will be a race held late in the evening on Saturday night in America, among all the lights and frills on the strip in Las Vegas. That means it will be an early start on Sunday morning for viewers in Europe.

The 14-turn street circuit will be over 6 kilometres long with top speeds of around 342 kilometres per hour on the long straight across the strip, meaning that the venue will rival Monza for average speeds.


Las Vegas previously staged two races in the early 1980s, with the event known as the Caesars Palace Grand Prix.

In both 1981 and 1982, the race acted as the season finale. Alan Jones claimed victory in the debut running, while the World Championship was awarded to Nelson Piquet who finished in fifth place.

Keke Rosberg clinched the title at the 1982 event, but it was Michele Alboreto who took his debut F1 race win.

Formula 1 will return to Las Vegas for 2023 amid the sport's growing popularity in the United States, with the event becoming the third race to be held in the country in 2023 alongside Austin and Miami.
