However, all over Las Vegas Boulevard is getting in on the action with viewing parties, special events and celebrity-led blowouts. (If you want to check out the racing, you can expect to spend anywhere from $92 to over $8,000.) Here are all the ways you can spend your money this Las Vegas Formula 1 weekend.
