“Why is the F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix so late? That and all your burning questions, explained”
The thrill of Formula 1 is taking its show to the entertainment capital of the world: Las Vegas. The series will race in “Sin City” for the inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix this weekend. It’s the first time F1 is in the glitz and glamor of Las Vegas since 1981 and 1982, when Alain Prost and Niki Lauda raced in the Caesars Palace Grand Prix in the resort’s parking lot. Nelson Piquet and Keke Rosberg both finished fifth in the two races to claim their respective drivers’ championships. This year’s track is much different as Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton and Lando Norris will race on the famous Strip in a night race with the city’s lights shining down.
