Vietnam GP has shown on their Twitter account what some parts of the Hanoi circuit track look like less than two months before the F1 race, the first one in the country’s history.
Formula One gets two new races this year compared to last season, with the loss of the German GP, and while the Netherlands is back in the calendar for the first time since 1985, Vietnam is a new entrant in the F1 calendar.
Work on new sections of the track began on 21 March, 2019, but the track is mostly made up of public roads in the western part of the capital city Hanoi, near My Dinh National Stadium.
Vietnam will become the fourth street race in the current F1 calendar alongside Monaco, Singapore and Azerbaijan and will have 22 turns and 5565 meters in length. Also, it will be the fourth race in Asia alongside China, Japan and Singapore.
In its design, the track has found inspiration in many famous tracks around the world such as Nurburgring, Monaco, Suzuka and Sepang.
Less than 2 months to go! The Pit Building is ready, the stage is set & we are about to the newest circuit to grace the #F1 calendar. The team has been working tirelessly to keep everything on schedule! See you in Hanoi for the first ever F1 VinFast Vietnam Grand Prix!#VietnamGP pic.twitter.com/D0FgcXogG4
