First up are the current world champions, Red Bull. The Milton Keynes squad will run a special casino-themed livery on their RB19, in what will be the third and final fan-designed livery the team has run in 2023 – with the other two being Miami and Austin.

After bringing a special look to the Italian GP to celebrate winning the 2023 Le Mans 24h, Ferrari will bring its second major revision to the livery of the SF-23 this weekend in Las Vegas, in a scheme featuring some much pronounced white assets – including an entirely white rear wing – in order to celebrate some of the Scuderia’s glorious days from when the United States hosted several F1 races in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.

McLaren will also be sporting a revised livery on the MCL60, in what will be the latest of many different designs the Papaya car has had throughout the 2023 season. The Woking squad will run the car in a design not too dissimilar from their usual offering, but one that features more black instead of blue, in a partnership with famous American beer brand Jack Daniel’s.

Alpine has revealed it will partner up with Italian sportswear brand Kappa and London-based clothing and skateboard brand Palace to bring a revised look to its A523, the team’s pit and drivers overalls and clothing. The team will also launch a capsule collection along with the new look.

Williams will be another team bringing a significant overhaul compared to their usual livery. After running an United States flag on the engine cover during Austin weekend, the Grove squad has gone even further this time, running a design which features the famous ‘Welcome to Las Vegas’ sign, along with a bold Williams name in the middle.

AlphaTauri also revealed a striking new design for the last two races.

“The design, featuring white speed streaks flowing down the bodywork takes its inspiration from the AlphaTauri x Brendan Monroe Las Vegas Capsule Collection.”

Last — but certainly not least — Alfa Romeo unveiled a beautiful livery for this weekend’s event.

“Created by Alfa Romeo’s Centro Stile, this livery is inspired by Las Vegas’s role as Entertainment Capital of the World, and it’s a nod to one of its most celebrated activities. The car features an all-black look, with a pattern of playing cards featuring Alfa Romeo’s Quadrifoglio in gold and heart suit cards emblazoned with the number six – for the six years of the relationship between Sauber Motorsport and Alfa Romeo.”
