F1 is hard to miss for anyone in Las Vegas at the moment. Lighting trusses extend more than one mile down the west side of the Strip, major side roads are being bisected by racetrack fencing, and grandstands are going up in front of iconic attractions like the Bellagio Fountains and Mirage Volcano (partially atop the water).

F1 signage is everywhere, and it all serves as a giant promotion for what’s to come.

“This is F1 right here!” a man said to his group of friends said, as he emerged from Harrah’s and pointed to the trusses on the other side of the street.
