F1 to Viet­nam

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
