Insane footage shows Las Vegas Grand Prix could be Formula One's greatest ever race

Footage of the circuit for the Las Vegas Grand Prix has emerged online and it has the potential to be the best race in Formula One history.

Vegas previously played host to the Caesars Palace Grand Prix between 1981 and 1984 but the city, widely seem as the entertainment capital of the world, has not staged an F1 grand prix since 1982.

That's all about to change though. In 2023, a total of three United States-based events will take place in F1 and the pick of the races will be located in Sin City.

The event will be from November 15 to 18 in 2013, with the actual race taking place on Saturday night in a quite sublime setting.

Fresh footage, said to be from Red Bull's filming session, shows that it promises to quite incredible spectacle. The brand new temporary circuit includes the iconic Las Vegas strip.

It starts in a parking lot no longer use and features 17 corners and 1.193 mile straight. Just imagine Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton and Sergio Perez racing around Vegas under the lights.

With excitement through the roof, there's already been ridiculous demands for tickets in the pre-registration ticket portal and they don't come on the cheap.

$500 is the lowest price for tickets, which does included three days of admission to the MSG Sphere and unlimited food and non-alcoholic drinks.

Premium tickets, meanwhile, are priced at $2,000 and will include all food and drink as well as three-day access.

It's just over a year until F1 hits Vegas and with a launch party taking place this weekend, Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1, can't wait.

“The Las Vegas Grand Prix is set to be an incredible event and in just over 12 months the best drivers on the planet will be racing through the streets of the entertainment capital of the world," he said.

It’s going to be something no one will want to miss and the energy and enthusiasm for the race is already building. We know our passionate US fans and those from all over the world will want to be there to witness the thrill first hand and we can’t wait for November 18 2023.”
