As Formula 1’s most anticipated race weekend of the season approaches, the track is starting to take shape in Las Vegas.

We’re now just days away from the most expensive racing weekend in history, and organizers in Sin City are putting the finishing touches on their preparations.

As the grandstands rise and the track is laid, Formula 1 bosses made a subtle – but effective – nod to their surroundings with some impressive casino-themed barriers.

In images published on Friday, diamonds, hearts, clubs and spades were sprinkled on the outer edges of the track, ahead of the drivers’ arrival next week.

The permanent pit lane structure was completed earlier this week, and the grandstands are now being built, ready to welcome fans.

However, there were widespread reports this week that ticket sales in Vegas had not reached the levels expected before the race.

Motorsports website Oversteer48.com found about 10,000 unsold seats near the recently constructed Sphere and East Harmon area of ​​the track when examining Ticketmaster data.

This is in line with a report by Road & Track – which revealed that hotel room rates fell by about a quarter in the past month to around $280 per night.

But regardless of whether the grandstands are full or not, Formula 1 is ready to take to the strip, as Max Verstappen and his 19 rivals battle it out in one of the world’s most famous cities.

Red Bull driver Verstappen has already clinched the 2023 Drivers’ Championship title, having won 17 of 21 races so far this season.

There are only two races remaining, with Vegas followed by the grand finale in Abu Dhabi at the end of November.
