Definitely a line through the Grand Prix of Vietnam

The race was initially scheduled for April on the streets of Hanoi, as the third race of the season. Due to the corona virus, the race was postponed and it has now been decided to pull through completely.

“This was an extremely difficult but necessary decision given the ongoing uncertainty caused by the global coronavirus pandemic,” said the organizers of the race in Vietnam, where there would be a Formula 1 race for the first time in history.

Vietnam has been relatively mildly affected by the coronavirus, with 1110 infections and 35 deaths, according to data from the Ministry of Health.

Due to the corona virus, the number of races was significantly reduced. Of the seventeen scheduled races so far, eleven have already taken place. Until Friday, there was no clarity about the Grand Prix of Vietnam, which could possibly be held in November.
