2023 LAS VEGAS GRAND PRIX: WEEKEND MILESTONES
This will be the first F1 race not held on a Sunday since the 1985 South African Grand Prix. In total, it is the 74th round of the World Championship not held on a Sunday – and the 58th to take place on a Saturday.
The Las Vegas Grand Prix will be the third race held in the United States this season. That makes it the first time since 1982 that F1 has staged three races in the United States in a single year. In total, this is only the third F1 season to feature three races in a single country. It also happened in 2020, when Italy hosted the Italian, Tuscan and Emilia Romagna Grands Prix.
Logan Sargeant becomes only the third driver to race on home soil three times in a single Formula 1 season. The other drivers to have done so are Eddie Cheever in 1982 and Antonio Giovinazzi in 2020.
