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.

“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.”
