F1 News: Lewis Hamilton Sets Off Celebrations For Las Vegas Grand Prix
To introduce the Las Vegas Grand Prix to the F1 calendar in the 2023 season, a launch event is being hosted by Caesars Palace on November 5th to show fans what the Grand Prix event will be like.
It is clear that the Vegas GP is going to be a big event when you mix Formula 1 with the insane, non-stop Las Vegas strip. The free, all-day launch party will have fun challenges for fans to take part in such as the Formula 1 Pit Stop Challenge, F1 Esports simulators, and countless photo opportunities. It will also have giveaways and a live car run on the Las Vegas Boulevard giving fans an insight into the atmosphere that can be expected from the main event next year.
Just to sweeten the deal, there will also be four F1 stars at the event. Sir Lewis Hamilton will be making an appearance along with his Mercedes teammate George Russell. Williams driver Alex Albon and Red Bull’s Sergio Perez will also be there.
According to the Formula 1 website, the line-up is as follows:
11:00 – Launch party begins
17:50 – Live car run on Las Vegas Boulevard
18:30 – Drone show above Caesars Palace
18:45 – Introduction of drivers and teams on the Main Stage
23:00 – Official after party with Alesso at OMNIA Nightclub
F1 CEO, Stefano Domenicali has explained about the event:
“We are thrilled to welcome our fans to the launch of the 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix,
“The Las Vegas Grand Prix is going to become a regular fixture in the city and on the global sporting calendar, so it is important to have local fans both celebrated and celebrating with us from the very start. This launch is a small but exciting taste of things to come over the next year when all the Formula 1 teams hit The Strip.”
The Las Vegas Grand Prix will be the penultimate race of the 2023 season on 18th November.
