F1 to Vietnam
Formula 1 is set to announce the addition of a Vietnam Grand Prix to its calendar for 2020 in the next month, with sources indicating a deal has been reached. The Asian country has long been rumoured to be on the radar of F1’s owner Liberty Media, with a venue just over seven miles west of Hanoi having been singled out as a location for the track – which will be partially streetbased. F1 race director Charlie Whiting visited the Hanoi location ahead of the Japanese GP, and said he had no doubts the facility would be ready. “There is no actual progress at building the track, but the site has been identified,” he said.
