Lewis Hamilton made the most of his trip to Las Vegas – by partying into the early hours at an exclusive nightclub in Sin City. The seven-time F1 champion was on the DJ decks with music star Diplo at the XS nightclub on Saturday night, enjoying a weekend off before the Brazilian Grand Prix. 

Hamilton, 37, had jetted to Vegas with some of his other F1 rivals after an encouraging second place finish in Mexico. The British racing legend was promoting the Las Vegas 2023 race after it was confirmed that the gambling mecca will be part of the F1 calendar next season. 

Mercedes teammate George Russell joined Hamilton and Red Bull star Sergio Perez in wowing fans by pulling off tricks driving their cars down the famous Strip. And in the evening, Hamilton made his way to the nightclub to enjoy a night of high-energy with a music superstar. 

Hamilton shared the DJ booth with award-winning artist Diplo, and has been pictured partying in the club that is a common venue for A-list stars. The pair urged clubbers to enjoy their music as they partied late into the Las Vegas night.

The F1 star was also pictured alongside Diplo and the artist’s birthday cake, before he was said to have called it a night and left with his friends at around 2:30 am. 

The plush Vegas launch party marked a year before the famous Strip makes its debut in F1, with drivers set to race past famous hotels such as Caesars Palace and The Bellagio. 

It will almost certainly rival the iconic Monaco Grand Prix for one of the most glamorous weekends on the F1 calendar, with huge names expected to attend the race next November.

And Hamilton admitted that it will not be easy to switch off from inevitable Vegas distractions when they return to Sin City next year. “Nope, of course”, Hamilton joked at the launch event when asked if he will be able to stay focused. 

“We have races like Singapore. Monaco for example is pretty hectic. It’s definitely not going to be easy. We will be here to try and win the race of course but hopefully we get to enjoy a bit of what this city has to offer.”

Hamilton had been doing donuts in the road to entertain fans before his night out, and admitted that he almost lost control of his car. “I nearly crashed,” he said.

“There was so much smoke and I had no idea where I was. I couldn’t figure out where the buildings were. I tried to pull up on the side and there was a barrier!”
