The wait is almost over. After almost 40 years, Formula 1 is heading back to one of the world’s most famous cities – Las Vegas, better known as the entertainment capital of the world. They say that everything is possible in Vegas – and if the plans we’ve seen for the all-new Grand Prix are anything to go by, the same mantra can be applied to the latest addition to the F1 calendar…

If you want an example of just how big the organisers of the Las Vegas Grand Prix are going with this event, you need only head over to the inside of Turns 7, 8 and 9 where you’ll see a 110m-tall, high-tech giant golf ball-shaped amphitheatre called the Sphere, which is bedecked head-to-tow with LED screens – 1.2 million of them, no less.
