Vietnam to host F1 grand prix in Hanoi street race from 2020
- Track will be street race across 5.65km of capital’s city centre
- New race is part of expansion under new owners Liberty Media
Hanoi will host the Vietnamese Formula One Grand Prix from 2020. Liberty Media, the company who took ownership of the sport in 2017, have made a first addition to the race calendar in the post-Bernie Ecclestone era.
The Hanoi promoter, Vingroup, signed a multi-year deal to host the grand prix, which will be a street race through the capital city’s centre on a 5.65km track.
Chase Carey, the chairman and chief executive, said: “Since we became involved in this sport in 2017, we have talked about developing new destination cities to broaden the appeal of Formula 1 and the Vietnamese Grand Prix is a realisation of that ambition. We are really looking forward to seeing Formula 1 cars speeding around the streets of this fantastic city from 2020.”
