“This is an incredible moment for Formula 1 that demonstrates the huge appeal and growth of our sport with a third race in the US,” F1 President and CEO Stefano Domenicali said. “Las Vegas is a destination known around the world for its excitement, hospitality, thrills, and of course, the famous Strip.
“There is no better place for Formula 1 to race than in the global entertainment capital of the world and we cannot wait to be here next year. I want to thank everyone who helped deliver this event, especially Governor Sisolak, the Clark County Commission, Steve Hill at the LVCVA, and our local partners.”
The series has run at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas each year from 2012-2021, excluding 2020, and is scheduled for Oct. 23 this year. Also, the Crypto.com Miami Grand Prix at the Miami International Autodrome will debut this May.
