Vietnam to get Formula One street circuit race in Hanoi from 2020

Chase Carey, F1 chairman and chief executive, says introducing a race on a street circuit in the capital city fits in with the long-term strategy of broadening the appeal of the sport globally. Vietnam's concept of what grand prix racing should be about matches our vision for the sport.

There will again be 21 races on the 2019 calendar, with the same races as this year retaining their places.

Formula One confirmed that Hanoi promoter Vingroup has signed a multi-year deal to host the Grand Prix, which will begin as a thrilling street race in the heart of the city. "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".

The Vietnamese government and the organisers of Formula One have announced that a deal to hold the race - the first to be announced under Liberty Media's ownership - has been struck.


"Then we have a set of street races and hybrid street races, where we race in parks and on city streets, such as Melbourne, Montreal and Mexico City".

The British Grand Prix has been ever-present on the Formula 1 calendar, with Silverstone the permanent home since 1987, having also held the inaugural World Championship event in 1950.

"We are thrilled to be here in Hanoi, one of the most exciting cities in the world right now with such a rich history and an incredible future ahead of it".

When asked whether events in Britain or Italy could be moved to different locations, Bratches replied: "We're a 68-year-old entity and the nature of grand prix racing is that it is dynamic". A street circuit is a great way to do that.
