Las Vegas Grand Prix Schedule: The Oddest Formula 1 Timetable Ever?

The Las Vegas Grand Prix will take place on Saturday night local time, but for European fans, it will be on Sunday morning due to the time difference.

Highlights

– The Las Vegas Grand Prix will take place on a Saturday night, a rare occurrence in Formula 1
– The time difference will result in the race being on Sunday morning in Europe
– The schedule for the UK and local time for the Grand Prix weekend
– The 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix will be the 21st race in the Formula 1 season


The 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix is approaching, and it’s bringing a unique schedule to the Formula 1 season. This event is set to take place on Saturday, November 18th, at 22:00 local time, which translates to Sunday morning for fans in Europe. “It is the only F1 race to take place on a Saturday night since the South African Grand Prix in 1985,” according to the organizers.

For fans in America, this unique schedule means the race will occur very late on Saturday evening. However, for those in Europe, the race will take place on Sunday morning due to the time difference. The Las Vegas Grand Prix is scheduled to be the 21st race in the 2023 Formula 1 season and will follow the traditional weekend format.

“The Las Vegas Grand Prix will occur on a Sunday morning for European fans, providing a different viewing experience than other races due to the time difference,” stated a representative from the Formula 1 organization. As for the 2024 Bahrain and Saudi Arabian Grands Prix, the time difference is not as significant, so the race schedule will not be affected in the same way.

The weekend schedule for the Las Vegas Grand Prix includes Practice 1 and 2 on Friday, Practice 3 and Qualifying on Saturday, and the main race on Sunday. All of these events will take place at different times to accommodate the unique schedule. According to the official schedule, the Qualifying and Las Vegas Grand Prix itself will be held at 00:00 – 01:00 local time, which is 08:00 – 09:00 in the UK.
