Formula 1 heads to the Las Vegas Grand Prix, live on Sky Sports F1

It's finally here! Watch live on Sky Sports as Formula 1 makes its long awaited return to Las Vegas for what promises to be one of the most spectacular sporting events of the year.

After months of wondering what it will be like to see the world's best racing cars on the Las Vegas Strip, the wait is almost over. F1 is returning to Las Vegas for the first time since the 1982 Caesars Palace Grand Prix, with an all-new circuit twisting through some of the city's most famous landmarks set to provide thrilling scenes under the lights.

All sessions from the Las Vegas Strip Circuit are live on Sky Sports F1, with Qualifying and the Grand Prix also simulcasting on Sky Showcase, which is available to all Sky TV customers.

World champion Max Verstappen arrives in search of a record-extending 18th win of his historic title-winning campaign, but has admitted there are several unknowns going into the penultimate Grand Prix of the season.

Along with the all-new circuit, the expected low evening temperatures in which qualifying and the race will take place are set to create major unpredictability.

With Formula One heading to Las Vegas for the next race, Max Verstappen gave his thoughts on racing along the iconic strip!

Behind Verstappen, Sergio Perez is on the brink of sealing Red Bull's first one-two in the drivers' standings to accompany their constructors' title. Meanwhile, Mercedes are looking to protect a 20-point lead over Ferrari as they seek to claim the significant prize-money boost that will be provided by holding onto second in the constructors' standings.

With an eight-hour time different between Las Vegas and the United Kingdom, the night-time sessions on The Strip will be coming through early in the morning for Sky Sports F1 viewers, providing the perfect breakfast-time entertainment.
