Vietnam Formula 1 Grand Prix 2020
Wednesday 1 April 2020 (7 Days / 5 Nights)
From 2020, an exciting new venue will adorn F1’s calendar as Vietnam plays host to a brand new street circuit in the beating heart of its iconic and culturally rich capital city Hanoi…
The host of the 2020 Formula 1® Vietnamese Grand Prix, Hanoi, is Vietnam’s capital and the country’s second-largest by population with more than 8 million people. Hanoi is one of the world’s most intriguing cities with a rich history and culture that begs visitors to immerse themselves in. Having been under imperial, French, Japanese and now democratic rule in it’s 1,000+ year history, everything from the architecture, the food, to the customs is a unique fusion. Suffice to say that very few travellers ever visit Hanoi and/or Vietnam just once!
Vietnam will become F1’s fourth street race, joining Monaco, Singapore and Azerbaijan with its unique 22-turn, 5.565km track. It will also be the fourth race in Asia, joining China, Japan and Singapore.
F1 is blessed with a plethora of stunning turns and corner sequences scattered across the world’s great racing circuits, so in creating a new track, it makes sense to take inspiration from them.
What’s certain is that fans attending should be treated to plenty of action – not a procession. The drivers, meanwhile, will have their skills tested to the limit.
The circuit features a range of corners from a slow-speed hairpin and technical slow- to medium-speed corner combinations to high-speed esses and flat-out corners and long straights – one of which is 1.5km in length, with expected speeds of 335km/h through the speed trap.
The opening two sectors lean towards slower-speed turns and longer straights while the final sector will put a premium on cornering.The long straights will create a challenge for the teams, as they will have to balance wing levels to maximise speed on the straights while generating downforce to attack and defend through the corner sequences.Intriguingly, the pit lane also misses out the last and first corners, which should reduce the amount of time it takes to complete a pit stop and therefore make a multi-stop strategy more enticing and viable.
Whilst in Hanoi you will probably wish to explore the capital city a little bit. We will be offering you the chance to book a Hanoi city tour so you will not have to worry about researching tourist attractions, avoiding tourist traps, and finding transportation to each place. With our experienced tour guides, you can understand Vietnam’s history, culture, and people by visiting some landmarks of the capital city.
Hoan Kiem Lake and Old Quarter area, the must-see places in Hanoi, are always included in every city tour program for tourists to see local life and purchase some souvenirs. Also, you can have a chance to visit from historical and cultural sites like Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Temple of Literature, Tran Quoc Pagoda, and Vietnam Museum of Ethnology to colonial structures such as St. Joseph’s Cathedral, Hanoi Opera House, and Hoa Lo Prison (Maison Centrale).
