The timetable for the 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix has been revealed, with the entirety of the weekend taking place under the lights.
Las Vegas’ highly anticipated event will be the final of three US-based races next year, following ventures to Miami and Austin.
It will take place from November 16 – 18.
The grand prix weekend will also be shifted forward one day compared to the traditional format, with FP1 and FP2 taking place on Thursday, FP3 and qualifying on Friday before the race is held on Saturday.
Sunset in the Nevada city is scheduled to be at 16:30 local time, with the first practice session not set to take place until two hours later.
The night-time schedule for the US race means that for European fans, the event will be held during the early hours of the morning.
Saturday’s grand prix is currently timed to get underway at 6AM GMT, which is 10PM local time in Las Vegas.

F1 has hosted a number of night-time races in recent years, including Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and Abu Dhabi.
However, not all of the sessions have taken place under the lights that surround the circuits.
F1 recently held a launch party in Las Vegas, one year out from its return to the famous city known for its nightlife and party atmosphere.

You have to remember that Las Vegas is a night time town…
