Formula 1 Star Anticipates Exciting Race on Spectacular New Circuit

Max Verstappen, the three-time Formula 1 World Champion, is predicting "a few surprises" at the upcoming Las Vegas Grand Prix. The iconic strip will play host to F1 for the first time in its stunning new iteration from November 17-19.

Verstappen Admits Uncertainty Ahead of Race

Speaking to the media after his recent win at the Brazilian Grand Prix, Verstappen confessed that there is still much to do before the race in Nevada. He mentioned that he still needs to go on the simulator and that he doesn't even know the track yet. However, he hopes that his experience on the F1 game will not be a reflection of his performance on the actual track.

A Unique Circuit with High Speeds

The 3.8-mile track will feature seventeen corners and three straights. It will wind its way down the legendary strip, passing famous landmarks such as the Bellagio, Mirage, and Caesars Palace, while also circling The MSG Sphere. Reports suggest that the newly constructed street circuit could see average speeds of 212 mph.

Verstappen Expects Challenges on Unfamiliar Terrain

Verstappen admitted that the Las Vegas circuit will be very different from the recent race in Sao Paulo. He mentioned the low temperatures at night and the lack of experience on the street circuit. He believes that the unfamiliarity with the track grip could lead to some surprises during the race.

Potential for Verstappen's Seventeenth Win

Given Verstappen's dominant form this year, it would come as no surprise if he clinches his seventeenth win of the season in Nevada. However, the Las Vegas strip has seen F1 action before, with races in 1981 and 1982. The 1981 Caesars Palace Grand Prix took place on a makeshift course in a car park, with Alan Jones claiming the win for Williams. The following year, Michele Alboreto won the race for Tyrrell.

Will Verstappen continue his winning streak in Las Vegas? F1 fans will have to wait until November 17-19 to find out.
