Formula 1 in Las Vegas is going crazy – and so are the prices. The most expensive ticket package costs $5 million.
Las Vegas breaks the mold – even in Formula 1. At which other race track can you get married? Numbers for the Grand Prix in the gambler’s paradise.
1 – A wedding chapel will be set up in the paddock. Formula 1 fans can, so to speak, be trusted in the fast lane.
1.2 – The Grand Prix is expected to pump the equivalent of 1.2 billion euros into the local economy.
5 – The most expensive Formula 1 package is called the “Emperor Package”. It costs $5 million and offers five nights’ accommodation in the Nobu Sky Villa, which has almost 1,000 square meters of space and a terrace of more than 400 square meters. There are also twelve VIP tickets for the race weekend and a Rolls-Royce driving service.
22 – The area with the brand new pit facility is around 22 football fields in size.
38 – For the first time since the 1985 South African Grand Prix, i.e. in 38 years, a race will take place on a Saturday. Start is at 10 p.m. local time.
50 laps are driven. There are 17 corners on the 6.201 kilometer long circuit. The centerpiece is the straight across Las Vegas Boulevard, the world-famous so-called Strip, with a length of 1.9 kilometers. More than 340 km/h should be driven there.
460 – Formula 1 rights holder Liberty Media, as organizer, invested almost half a billion euros in the Las Vegas Grand Prix.
1750 – Temporary floodlights were installed around the track to better illuminate the night race.
2600 – The glowing Formula 1 logo that was placed on the roof of the pit area is around 2600 square meters in size. It’s an oversized eye-catcher.
315,000 – Formula 1 is expecting a total of 315,000 spectators on the three days of the event. That would mean: completely sold out.
