Hanoi Grand Prix latest

The FIA, Formula 1’s governing body, has sought to contain coronavirus speculation over the Hanoi Grand Prix by issuing a statement that they are “closely monitoring the evolving situation” with relevant authorities and Member Clubs.

Yesterday it stated: “The FIA will evaluate the calendar of its forthcoming races and, if necessary, take any action required to help protect the global motor sport community and the wider public.”

The statement came as it emerged that the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia (PCCA) has been added as a support race to the debut Hanoi Grand Prix slated for April 3 – 5.

The PCCA was introduced in 2003 and has grown into Asia’s premier one-make racing series. According to the Hanoi F1 website, “The 2020 season sees a formidable international field of brilliant drivers competing wheel-to-wheel with dedicated privateers. A proven testing ground for fledgling talent and a showcase for the world’s leading GT competitors, the PCCA is today considered the number one choice for the region’s finest drivers.”

The Hanoi street circuit is 5.6km long, features 23 bends and a massive straight.
