Red Bull Racing released a captivating new video on Wednesday, hyping up the upcoming Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix, set to take place on a street circuit constructed around the famed Las Vegas Strip. This event is widely anticipated to be one of the most significant sporting spectacles of the year worldwide.
The film stars Red Bull driver Sergio Pérez, who has previously taken on acting roles in promotional videos for the team, such as a special feature for the Miami Grand Prix after joining the team in 2021.
The video’s intriguing narrative kicks off with an unexpected sight: a Red Bull RB7 parked atop the iconic Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. This prompts Christian Horner, the team’s boss, to investigate how one of his treasured single-seaters ended up on the casino’s rooftop.
Horner quickly deduces that the enigmatic Pérez, colloquially known as “Checo,” is the instigator. As Horner confronts Pérez, the driver reveals the story of his whirlwind 24 hours in the city that never sleeps.
Pérez’s adventurous tale features a colorful cast of Las Vegas icons, including Elvis impersonators, glamorous showgirls, magician Mat Franco, the unforgettable Blue Man Group, and Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton.

The excitement doesn’t stop there, as six-time off-road racing champion and Las Vegas local Bryce Menzies joins in the fun. In a thrilling showdown, Menzies challenges Pérez to a high-speed race through the Nevada desert, with both competitors in their respective vehicles.
“There is a lot of anticipation surrounding the Las Vegas Grand Prix. We’re all really looking forward to it,” Horner expressed, echoing the excitement in the air.
He continued, “A Saturday night race on the Strip is going to be an incredible spectacle, and it speaks to the fun atmosphere that this new race will bring. Creating the ‘¡Vamos, Vegas!’ video with Checo was the perfect way to get us ready for what’s to come in November.”
The Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix is scheduled to run from November 16-18, promising an unforgettable racing experience for fans worldwide.
