The Vietnam Grand Prix Corporation (VGPC), Promoter of the Formula 1 VinFast Vietnam Grand Prix 2020, today released the most current map outlining the updated layout of the Hanoi Circuit, F1’s newest track that will host the the pinnacle of motorsport for the very first time next April 3rd – 5th. The inaugural Formula 1 race in Vietnam will debut in the South East Asian country for the third round of next year’s 22-race FIA Formula 1 World Championship.
The tweak to the final section of the Hanoi Circuit will now see the total number of corners increase to 23 – making it the only track alongside Singapore’s Marina Bay Circuit to have as many – with the track also extending from its original length of 5.565km to 5.607km.
The slight change was decided upon after further consideration of the surrounding geographical conditions and has been fully supported by both F1 and the FIA, who have been working closely with the event organisers to ensure all changes have been carried out according to standard regulations.
The new Turn 23 is a 100% left turn where the track widens out again to 15m where it will lead on to the start/finish line for one last push by the drivers when they race in Hanoi for the first time in Formula 1’s history next April.
The Hanoi Circuit itself is a unique hybrid design, fusing a street circuit’s characteristics with a permanent track layout. The first of its kind to be developed in partnership by Tilke Engineers and F1’s own Motorsports Division, it is set to become one of the most challenging and sensational circuits in the sport. With high speed corner sequences not seen at any other pure street tracks and as many as three overtaking points where cars will have the potential to duke it out side-by-side, this is a track designed to deliver spectacular racing.
The Hanoi Circuit is set to be one of the most breathtaking circuits in F1. A feat of design, innovation & construction, the track will pose a stern examination of the drivers’ strength and skills, whilst providing fans with a weekend of non-stop, adrenaline-fuelled racing action.
