Formula 1 boss Stefano Domenicali says holding the Las Vegas Grand Prix on a Saturday night is the “perfect time” and is confident that a third race in the United States will only boost the sport’s popularity.

F1 confirmed on Wednesday that from 2023 they will be racing in Las Vegas, with the famous Strip forming a unique backdrop for a street race that will see cars speed past the sights at around 212mph.

In a break from Sunday’s race day tradition, the Grand Prix is set to take place on a Saturday night in November, at 10pm local time.

“I think that is a perfect time and a perfect slot for that event in this context,” said Domenicali, the sport’s CEO and president.
