Formula 1 Adds Vietnamese Grand Prix to 2020 Race Calendar

Formula 1 Adds Vietnamese Grand Prix to 2020 Race Calendar

The track will be a 3.46-mile street circuit in the Vietnamese capital.

Silverstone, meanwhile, agreed a 17-year British Grand Prix contract in 2009, though had the ability to exercise a break clause mid-2017 that meant it would stop hosting duties after 2019.

Formula 1 chairman and chief executive Chase Carey says the addition of Hanoi fits Liberty's vision of increasing the number of races in or close to major cities.

The April 2020 event will be a 5.565km street circuit, according to a statement issued by Formula One and sent by Vingroup, which signed a multi-year deal to host the Grand Prix.

It's the first new location to be announced by F1's latest owner Liberty Media, which has been eying the Southeast Asian nation for a potential race for quite some time. I'm talking about the Silverstones, the Spas, the Monzas of this world.

Alex, quien también presenció el encuentro, afirmó que ambos cantantes prefieren mantenerse un tanto herméticos sobre el nuevo proyecto.

"Most of our grands prix are now half an hour to an hour outside cities, so the race in Hanoi fulfills of one of our preliminary goals - an iconic city hosting racing on a potentially thrilling street circuit".

"The third segment features purpose-built facilities such as Shanghai, Austin, Texas and Bahrain".

"We are delighted to announce that Hanoi will host a Formula 1 Grand Prix", Carey said.

Bratches envisions more races in cities like Hanoi and said F1 was carefully considering where to go next based on a number of offers from around the world. "It provides an opportunity for inward investment to Vietnam and importantly to bring the exciting wheel to wheel racing of Formula 1 to the people of Vietnam". "This is the flawless formula for Grand Prix racing and I look forward to this becoming a real highlight of the F1 calendar".
