Las Vegas - An official has denied that planning for a F1 race in Las Vegas is obviously racing ahead.

With Liberty Media often mentioning the desire for a second annual Grand Prix in the US, the local Las Vegas Review Journal says the sport has now made a series of trademark applications for Las Vegas GP-related items.

Te president of Las Vegas events said: "As far as we know, there is nothing new with formula one." 

However, a F1 spokesman confirmed that Las Vegas is on Liberty's radar.

Luca Colajanni said: "We have made no secret that we are looking for destination cities, and regarding the US, Las Vegas has been mentioned alongside Miami and New York."
