Spanning the weekend of November 16–18, the Las Vegas Grand Prix served as the twenty-first round of the 2023 Formula One World Championship. This race held particular significance as the 1,100th F1 Grand Prix since the series’ inception in 1950. This occasion also marked the return of Formula One racing to Las Vegas, the first since the 1982 Caesars Palace Grand Prix, as well as the first street race in the city since the 2007 Vegas Grand Prix Champ Car.
What makes it interesting?
