Vietnam GP: Work at Hanoi circuit is now completed!

Vietnam Grand Prix organisers have announced that the Hanoi circuit that will serve as the inaugural event’s venue has been completed.

The final section of the 5.6-kilometer track was laid last week, while the track’s pit complex and infrastructure have also been completed.

The race is scheduled for April 5th, but the ongoing outbreak of the coronavirus in neighboring China and which crossed the Vietnam border is a cause of concern for the local organisers and Formula 1 who continue to monitor the fluid situation.

“This is a major milestone for us to celebrate as we come closer to staging Vietnam’s first ever Formula 1 race weekend in just over a month’s time,” said Vietnam Grand Prix Corporation boss Le Ngoc Chi.

“We are beyond excited to witness the extraordinary sight of Formula 1 cars racing on this incredible circuit.

“It will be a moment of great pride for the whole team here at VGPC and a fitting tribute to the hard work that has gone in to ensuring the newest track in F1 is ready on time.”

The Hanoi circuit uses local roads and purpose-built portions to form the track’s layout which was designed in part with the help of the office of F1’s resident architect Hermann Tilke.

“With the help of everyone at Tilke and F1’s Motorsport Division, we feel confident in saying that this track will be one of the most challenging and exciting on the F1 calendar and we look forward to it quickly becoming a fan favorite,” added Ngoc Chi.

“With grandstands and all remaining temporary structures also going up around the track, the excitement in and around Hanoi for the Formula 1 VinFast Vietnam Grand Prix 2020 is continuing to grow.

“We are ready and can’t wait to welcome the world to Hanoi very soon.”
