HANOI STREET CIRCUIT

HANOI STREET CIRCUIT

There’s a new venue on the 2020 F1 calendar, with the announcement last year that we would be racing on a street circuit in the Vietnamese capital of Vietnam. The track is located in the Nam Từ Liêm, in the west of the city. It’s a semi-permanent track, using mainly public roads around the My Dinh National Stadium, with new link sections built specifically for the race.

The 5.607 km of the Hanoi street circuit features 23 corners, some of which take their inspiration from other famous and well established tracks on the Formula 1 calendar, such as the Nurburgring, Monaco and Suzuka. Unusually for a street venue, it boasts a very long straight, 1.5 kilometres in fact, where the current Formula 1 cars can reach speeds in excess of 335 km/h. The end of the straight and the run into the first corner provide the best overtaking opportunities.

Another unusual feature of the Hanoi track is that it has a very short pit lane, which involves the drivers cutting out a part of the track on entry and exit, which makes for a very short overall pit-stop time. It could be a key factor in terms of race strategy and make the Vietnam Grand Prix even more exciting and unpredictable.
