It’s finally here! Watch live on Sky Sports as Formula 1 makes its long awaited return to Las Vegas for what promises to be one of the most spectacular sporting events of the year.
After months of wondering what it will be like to see the world’s best racing cars on the Las Vegas Strip, the wait is almost over. F1 is returning to Las Vegas for the first time since the 1982 Caesars Palace Grand Prix, with an all-new circuit twisting through some of the city’s most famous landmarks set to provide thrilling scenes under the lights.
World champion Max Verstappen arrives in search of a record-extending 18th win of his historic title-winning campaign, but has admitted there are several unknowns going into the penultimate Grand Prix of the season.
Along with the all-new circuit, the expected low evening temperatures in which qualifying and the race will take place are set to create major unpredictability.
Behind Verstappen, Sergio Perez is on the brink of sealing Red Bull’s first one-two in the drivers’ standings to accompany their constructors’ title. Meanwhile, Mercedes are looking to protect a 20-point lead over Ferrari as they seek to claim the significant prize-money boost that will be provided by holding onto second in the constructors’ standings.
With an eight-hour time different between Las Vegas and the United Kingdom, the night-time sessions on The Strip will be coming through early in the morning for Sky Sports F1 viewers, providing the perfect breakfast-time entertainment.
In addition to all three practice sessions, qualifying and the race being shown live on Sky Sports, there is the added bonus of the opening ceremony airing on Thursday, with performances from John Legend, will.i.am and Journey.
