It’s finally here! Watch live on Sky Sports as Formula 1 makes its long-awaited return to Las Vegas in what promises to be one of the most exciting sporting events of the year.
After months of wondering what it would be like to see the world’s best race cars on the Las Vegas Strip, the wait is almost over. Formula 1 returns to Las Vegas for the first time since the 1982 Caesars Palace Grand Prix, with a brand-new circuit winding through some of the city’s most iconic landmarks set to provide thrilling spectacles under the lights.

World champion Max Verstappen arrives looking for a record-extending 18th win in his historic title campaign, but admitted there were many unknowns at the penultimate Grand Prix of the season.

Combined with the brand-new circuit, the expected low temperatures on the evening in which qualifying and the race will take place are expected to make for significant unpredictability.

As Formula 1 heads to Las Vegas for the next race, Max Verstappen has given his thoughts on racing along the famous track!

Behind Verstappen, Sergio Perez stands on the verge of achieving Red Bull’s top two places in the drivers’ standings to accompany the constructors’ title. Meanwhile, Mercedes is looking to protect its 20-point lead over Ferrari, as it seeks a big boost in prize money that will be made available by clinging to second place in the constructors’ standings.

With an eight-hour time difference between Las Vegas and the UK, night sessions on The Strip will start early in the morning for Sky Sports F1 viewers, providing the perfect breakfast-time entertainment.

As well as the three practice sessions, qualifying and the race being shown live on Sky Sports, there is the added bonus of the opening ceremony being broadcast on Thursday, with performances from John Legend, will.i.am and Journey.
