Watch: Ride onboard in Sainz’s Ferrari F1-75 for the first time at 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix circuit

Formula 1 will return to Les Vegas for the first time in 41 years next November.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Las Vegas will be returning to the Formula 1 calendar, with a night race scheduled to run in 2023.

F1 fans are hopeful that the newly designed street circuit will allow the drivers to put on a good show by providing them with spots that allow for close racing and overtaking.

And, to give everyone a first look at the circuit, a YouTuber has taken to Assetto Corsa and completed a five-lap race with the Ferrari of Carlos Sainz.

The new track runs relatively close to Caesars Palace, where the original championship races in the city were held, and also sees the drivers take to the world famous Las Vegas strip.

The addition of Vegas means that there will be three races held in the United States as of 2023, and Nevada is one of the eight states to have hosted a Formula 1 championship grand prix.

Others include New York, California and Michigan, and Florida will reappear on the calendar later this year when the circus rolls into Miami, and the pinnacle of motorsport will continue to travel to Texas for the 2022 United States Grand Prix.

SP GamesPlus on YouTube fired up a mod of the circuit on Assetto Corsa and took us round a lap of the new track while completing a first-to-last challenge to demonstrate if overtaking will be possible.

The track starts with a short home straight coming out of the flat-out final corner, and the run from the grid to the first turn will be an extremely short one.

Turn Two follows shortly after, before the first right-hander arrives at the long Turn Three, with another right of Four arriving immediately afterwards.

The drivers will then face a relatively heavy braking zone as they hurtle down a fairly long straight into Five and the exit, which will undoubtedly be a tricky traction zone due to the camber, leads into the long left of Six.

The circuit winds through the high-speed chicane at Seven and Eight, before the Braking zone at Turn Nine takes us onto the strip.

The 2km run down to the final part of the circuit includes the kink of Turn 10, and it rivals the home straight at Baku for distance as the best racing cars in the world fly past the bright lights and the astonishing sights of the entertainment capital of the world.

Turns 11, 12 and 13 are reminiscent of the old chicane at Abu Dhabi as they weave left, right and left again.

Another lengthy stretch guides us past the final corner at Turn 14 and back onto the main straight.
