The official presentation of the Grand Prix was held in Las Vegas
On Saturday evening the official presentation ceremony of the Grand Prix took place in Las Vegas.
On Saturday evening, the official presentation ceremony of the Grand Prix, which will be held in this American city on November 16-18, 2023, took place in Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Grand Prix will be the most expensive, and Stefano Domenicali, president and CEO of Formula 1, explained it this way:
Stefano Domenicali: "We are going to put on the most impressive show in the world, and this will be a kind of statement made by Formula 1. This should be recognized, and we intend to make the prices high, because this is Las Vegas, and everything corresponds to the very nature of the public that comes to this city.
For people who want to pay and spend less, there will be opportunities too. It always happens in life: if the market pulls prices up, then we, for our part, are responsible for arranging a great race”.
The Las Vegas Grand Prix will be the third American stage, which takes place in the United States – after the races in Austin and Miami.
The peculiarity of the upcoming race is also that Liberty Media and Formula 1 itself act as promoters, so the corporation has acquired a plot of land in Las Vegas, where a complex of boxes will be built, a pit lane, a paddock and guest areas will be located.
Greg Maffey: "Since we are acting as a promoter, we want to make the race a model of what can be done at other stages of the championship. We want to take advantage of the huge interest of the American public, the demand is very high now. I foresee that tickets for the race will be sold out in a few hours.
In addition, in terms of revenue, this will be the most important race for our company, but also the most expensive in terms of costs. We will try to create an opportunity for fans to choose, because not everyone can pay a high price, and we understand this..."
Mercedes, Red Bull Racing and Williams teams delivered their cars to Las Vegas, Lewis Hamilton, Sergio Perez and Alex Albon participated in meetings with the public, and also held demonstration races in the city center.
On Saturday, the presentation program of the upcoming Grand Prix was designed for the whole day: drivers appeared in public, wheel replacement competitions were held for fans, and a large-scale party was held for VIP guests in a nightclub.
