F1 has officially marked the impending arrival of the Las Vegas Grand Prix by throwing an elaborate launch party in the city.

While the race will not be held until November 2023, the sport has already started to build the anticipation.

An extravagant light show with drones kicked off the proceedings at Caesars Palace, and Lewis Hamilton performed a demo run in a neon-lit Formula 1 car.

Sergio Perez, George Russell and Alex Albon were also in attendance for the event.

Check out footage from the launch party below!

Video: F1 pit-stops under two seconds are allowed (and THIS is why)

At the Mexico City Grand Prix, McLaren became the first team to complete a sub-two second pit-stop since the introduction of the new F1 pit-stop regulations, changing all four tyres on Daniel Ricciardo's car in 1.98 seconds.

So how did the team do this, and what changes have been made to F1's pit-stop procedure in the last couple of years?
