Discussions about the race started in 2019. At that time F1’s former leader, Chase Carey, expressed interest in hosting an event in Vegas.
Hill later became more familiar with F1 and was impressed by its impact on host cities. He believed that the event will be significant for Las Vegas.

Addressing the challenges of constructing a premier F1 circuit in Las Vegas, Hill mentioned the recent roadwork and current bridge construction. He emphasized that while this year focuses on infrastructure, subsequent years will prioritize the guest experience.
