Las Vegas GP: race preview
Formula 1 hasn't visited Sin City since the frankly rubbish Caesar's Palace Grands Prix in 1981 and 1982 – events which are considered largely to blame for F1's downturn in popularity in the United States. However, 2023's Las Vegas Grand Prix is set to take place on a much more exciting circuit – but with a bizarre schedule, there are still some potholes to avoid.
Champion Max Verstappen is odds-on favorite to take another win, but track conditions will be a challenge for every driver on the grid.
With the checkered flag waving at 10pm – and Qualifying at a heady midnight – track temperatures of just 8 degrees Celsius (46 Fahrenheit) are predicted. Despite the desert backdrop, Las Vegas is set to be the coldest race on the calendar by some way, and even the softest Pirellis are likely to struggle to hold heat.
Because of all this, it's tricky to predict who's actually likely to perform well – especially since this is also a totally new layout that none of the drivers have visited yet.
So, we've got a checklist: cold tarmac and tires, an entirely unknown circuit configuration, and tight street circuit walls. That absolutely sounds like a recipe for disaster – and we love it.
After a commanding Qualifying session, Charles Leclerc sits on pole, with Max Verstappen joining the Monegasque on the front row.
The inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix certainly isn't one to miss, and while those in Europe or the East Coast might find it tricky to stay up or wake up for the race, those in Asia, Australia and New Zealand are, for once, being treated to a very sensible schedule.
Read on for how to watch Las Vegas Grand Prix live streams from start to finish from anywhere in the world, including all ways to watch an F1 live stream for FREE.

How to watch the Las Vegas Grand Prix live stream from outside your country
If you're abroad for this weekend's Las Vegas Grand Prix, you'll likely find you're unable to access your usual Formula 1 coverage like you would at home.

Fortunately, there's a convenient way around this in the form of a VPN. This is a nifty bit of software that lets you whizz around these digital borders, thereby allowing you to globe trot and still access your preferred F1 live stream. It's a completely legal workaround, very affordable, and super easy to use – allow us to explain more.
