F1 chief Domenicali wants to create a ‘Super Bowl’ effect after adding Las Vegas GP for 2023 season | The Sun

FORMULA 1 chief Stefano Domenicali wants to create a Super Bowl effect on the track with a third US race now on the calendar.

Texas and Miami both hosted Grand Prix events in 2022.

And Las Vegas has now been added to the schedule for the 2023 season, increasing America's host venues to three.

That's set to be the most the US have ever hosted in an F1 season.

As a result, Domenicali wants to bring a Super Bowl effect to the sport.

He said: "It was such a quick turnaround – really a matter of two years. An incredible 'switch-on' that before was not there.
