2020 Formula 1® Vietnamese Grand Prix – Tours & Travel Packages
Liberty Media, the owners of Formula 1®, have announced that the world’s fastest and most prestigious motorsport category, Formula 1®, will be staged in the bustling Vietnamese capital, Hanoi from April 2020 (exact dates TBA)! And Sportsnet Holidays is excited to announce that we’ll be offering tours and travel packages to this exciting new addition to the F1® calendar!

- A great range of official tickets to choose from.

- Transfers throughout.
- Plus more!
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!
The actual stage for the 2020 Formula 1® Vietnamese Grand Prix is set to be a circuit of the street variety (which will make it just the fourth on the current Formula 1® calendar, joining Monaco, Singapore and Azerbaijan) and will be 5.57km in length. Designed by renowned track architect, Herman Tilke, the circuit will use a combination of both existing and existing roads and will pay homage to a number of existing F1® circuits by replicating many of their most iconic turns. Examples include Turns 1 and 2 being based on the opening two corners of Germany’s Nurburgring, Turns 12 and 15 replicate Monaco’s run up the hill to Massenet and the Turn 16-19 sequence is reminiscent of the famous Esseses at Suzuka, Japan.
However, just because it’s a street circuit, don’t be fooled into thinking that the Hanoi Street Circuit is going to (relatively!) slow! The circuit will feature a 1.5km-long straight that is estimated will see cars doing 335km/h through the speed trap! Perhaps more interesting from a strategy perspective is that the pit lane will see drivers ‘skip’ the first and final corners, which will cut down on the amount of time it takes to a stop and therefore make multi-stop strategies more attractive. Imagine seeing a driver on a multi-stop strategy with fresh tyres trying to close the gap on a driver that has elected for only a single stop in the dying laps!
