Revised Vietnam GP track layout revealed

Revised Vietnam GP track layout revealed”

The Vietnam Grand Prix Corporation, promoters of the Formula 1 VinFast Vietnam Grand Prix, has released an updated layout of the Hanoi Circuit.

The 5.565 km long circuit will have 23 corners and has been inspired from current circuits, Circuit de Monaco, Suzuka Circuit, Sepang International Circuit and the Nürburgring.

The original layout announced in November 2018 consisted of 22 turns in total, but a revised layout issued by the organisers on Wednesday reveals a new corner has been added at the end.

Apart from the added corner, that part of track - which is expected to be finalised in January - has been widened by around 15 meters.

The Hanoi Circuit itself is a unique hybrid design, fusing a street circuit's characteristics with a permanent track layout.

Now the turn will end at Turn 21, before a tight left-hander at the 22nd one and an open left-hander at turn 23.

Le Ngoc Chi from the Vietnam Grand Prix told motorsport that it was a street circuit, so one would have to adjust it to the geographical conditions of the vicinity and make sure that it meets the needs of the FIA and Formula 1.

"We've worked really closely together with FIA and F1 to be certain everything we do guarantees ideal security for the drivers, in addition to still create all of the exciting endings that enable the drivers to flaunt their abilities".

The Hanoi Circuit is the first to have been created by Formula 1's in-house Motorsports team, in collaboration with circuit designers Tilke, which was responsible for Austin's Circuit of The Americas design, among others. "We have a long stretch, which at 1.6km is one of the longest stretches on the calendar, and will see cars reach up to 335km/h", added Chi.
