Shanghai Daily - - SPORTS - MO­TOR RAC­ING

FOR­MULA One and Hanoi of­fi­cials say a street race in the Viet­namese cap­i­tal will be added to the F1 cal­en­dar start­ing with the 2020 sea­son.

In a state­ment yes­ter­day, F1 of­fi­cials said the race is planned for a 5.565kilo­me­ter street cir­cuit. The race in Viet­nam will join other stops in the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion that in­clude Ja­pan, China, Sin­ga­pore, and Aus­tralia. The state­ment gave few de­tails about the race, nor where it would fit on the cal­en­dar. It said Hanoi pro­moter Vingroup had signed a multi-year deal, but gave no specifics about the deal or the level of gov­ern­ment sup­port. F1 has 21 races listed on a ten­ta­tive cal­en­dar for 2019. The 2018 sea­son has two races to go, in Sao Paulo and Abu Dhabi.
