Las Vegas GP 2023

Las Vegas GP 2023

The inaugural Las Vegas GP in modern F1 history is set to start this weekend at a brand new street circuit around the renowned Las Vegas Strip. The last time Las Vegas hosted an F1 race was back in 1982 (Caesars Palace GP). This is also going to be the first race held on Saturday (local time) since 1985 South African GP. This event aspires to become the greatest F1 show on earth. As a hardcore/traditional F1 fan myself, I prefer pure racing spectacle rather than fancy music events, light shows and whatever takes the sport out of F1.

Without any data about the circuit and past performances on the circuit, the model predicts the 3-time world champ to win the race. The battle for the 2nd position in the driver’s standings seems to be over in favor of Perez. However, the 4th spot is realistic for Alonso, Norris and Sainz who have only 6 points difference. Given McLaren’s recent form, I would bet on Norris getting it!
