The upstart newcomer, Las Vegas makes its debut as an F1® circuit in the 2023 season, but don’t let its youth fool you – the circuit will not be a breeze. With flat-out straights and hairpin corners, all set against the dazzling lights of the Strip as a backdrop, Las Vegas is sure to reward Team Principals who are willing to gamble on victory.
Suggested car setup for the Las Vegas Strip Circuit:
- Top speed and low speed cornering are crucial
- Focusing on low speed dirty air cornering is also recommended
- Balanced circuit
Tips & Tricks
With such a long pit stop time, most strategies for the new Las Vegas Grand Prix favour a single pit stop.
- With opportunities to reach top speed but also several low-speed corners, power and downforce-specialised cars may lose out to all-rounders.
- The pit stop time is 29 seconds, so only opt for a two-pit strategy if you plan to be very aggressive to make up the time.
- There’s no chance of rain in Las Vegas, so don’t expect many surprises on the circuit. Pick your strategy and stick to it.
