F1 returns to Las Vegas
For all current drivers, the Las Vegas street circuit will be their first Formula 1 Grand Prix in Las Vegas. Michelle Alboreto (1982) and Alan Jonse (1981) won earlier editions of the Las Vegas Grand Prix. The event was then known as the Caesars Palace Grand Prix. That refers to the very well-known casino of the same name. The location of the circuit in Las Vegas is almost the same as in the 80s, but it is now expected to attract more than 170,000 visitors.
Las Vegas Street Circuit
For the Las Vegas Grand Prix, the strip and more than 6 kilometers of the roads in Las Vegas will be converted into a street circuit. The Las Vegas circuit has a total of 14 turns, 3 straights, 2 DRS zones and meanders between the biggest casinos such as Caesars, MGM and Whynn. On the longest straight and just before Turn 11, the drivers will pass the Bellagio Fountain, which for years was the largest fountain show in the world.
