Make Sure You Don’t Miss It!
The Las Vegas Grand Prix features a rather unusual schedule, so study up to not miss any of the action.
Thursday is now ‘practice day’ with everything moving one day earlier compared to the normal race weekend schedule. FP1 takes place in the evening, but FP2 starts at midnight and runs into Friday morning. It’s the same story for ‘qualifying day’ – FP3 takes place on Friday evening but qualifying starts at midnight and runs into Saturday morning.
Qualifying and the race (which is at 10pm local on Saturday) both take place on the same day. And the race start time is the latest F1 start time in the sport’s history.
While the timetable brings challenges for the team at the track, it’s also tricky for the crew back in Brackley in the Race Support Room. The schedule is similar to the Japanese GP, with work starting around 2am GMT.
