F1 raced in Las Vegas at the Caesars Palace Grand Prix in 1981 and 1982 on a track which was often referred to as a car park. Nelson Piquet won his first title there in 1981, with Alan Jones winning the race, and Michele Alboreto was victorious the following season.
The 2023 track is very different though with long straights, including down the famous Las Vegas Strip, past some of the world’s most famous hotels and casinos, with not too many corners.
Cold weather is going to be a big theme this weekend with the lowest temperatures of the season expected, which could cause havoc for the drivers and teams.
