Now, according to KTNV, the numbers make for highly positive ones for Formula 1 in figures revealed by the sport's chiefs on Wednesday.
American dream for F1
The report claims that F1 sold 316,000 tickets for the grand prix, with each race guest spending an incredible average of $4,100 (£3,200).
To put that into perspective, it is four times the amount that an average tourist spends in Vegas.
F1 have claimed that the Las Vegas Grand Prix was their most watched race last season, with a stunning 2.7 billion global viewers.
"This is particularly unusual because by this point in the season, Max had already won the driver championship and to still have this level of viewership just shows the incredible demand and interest in the Las Vegas Grand Prix," F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix CEO Renee Wilm is quoted to have said in the report.
When is the F1 2024 Las Vegas Grand Prix?
