F1 will see a Las Vegas race finally

We’re only in March when suddenly, life is worth looking forward to. An Ed Sheeran and Green Day collaboration at the Miami GP and a Vegas race finally happening in the world. While fans are in a state of frenzy and obvious excitement, it is important to note that the track has undergone several changes. It is indeed a street circuit and does not resemble the 1981 slow, draggy track.

The race will be 50 laps and from the images, your favorites better have a solid pace down the straights. While there are 14 turns, they look deadly and might require a driver to pay extra attention. After all, if it indeed is a street- circuit, then we have a lot to look forward to. Additionally, the track is almost 6.1 km long.

Monza and Monaco like scenery?

There will be no loss of scenic beauty as the strip loops around the soon-to-be complete MSG-sphere. Moreover, the strip will have Caesar’s palace as one of the main attractions. The race will cater to majorly US audiences but will also sensibly facilitate timings for European and Asian markets. Moreover, the race will take place on the thanksgiving weekend in the United States, which will also mark the start of Christmas.

The track will reportedly resemble a Monza- like track, and the teams will be required to keep a low downforce setup. The US Grand Prix is already a thing as it’s held at Austin, but this year will see a new Miami Circuit as well. While the Australian GP also makes its comeback this year, both these tracks will apparently use yachts to give a Monaco GP feel.

So, we expect to see you very soon at one of these exciting races?
