Hanoi F1 News - March 2020

A quick update to the current status of the Hanoi F1 Grand Prix.

As of today the inaugural F1 Hanoi is still going ahead. But in light of the news of Bahrain F1 being held behind closed doors on 11th March. Importantly, the F1 chairman will come to Hanoi to assess the situation for the last time. Here he will then finally see if it should be postponed, or take place behind closed doors.

We will certainly keep you updated as soon as we know!

Hanoi F1 News - February 2020

With the news of the Ncov-19 virus emanating from China, we have had many enquiries as to whether the Vietnam GP in Hanoi will still go ahead.

We have every confidence in the organisers VinFast and have been sent Q & A's regarding this matter as follows below.

We must point out that statistics* prove the number of confirmed cases in Vietnam is still nominally low. It also shows no deaths (as of 13th Feb) and most are either in quarantine or released after treatment ** was successful.

Confirmed cases are also on a par with some other countries including Australia, Germany and the USA. It is not in anyway deemed more dangerous because of the border to China as Chinese visas have been suspended. **

Warmly greeting from F1 VinFast Vietnam Grand Prix 2020! ***

To answer your question, VinFast Vietnam Grand Prix 2020 would like to send you the Q&A about the Covid-19 situation as below:

Q: Is the event going ahead/ will it be cancelled?

A: The event is going ahead and is NOT cancelled. We will continue to work with the relevant authorities to closely monitor the situation. But have every confidence the event will be unaffected.


Q: Will I be safe if I go to the event, even in April?

A: Yes. All necessary measures will be taken to ensure the health and safety of our fans. We will work with all relevant authorities for support in this regard.


Q: If this event is cancelled later/ after I buy my ticket, do I get a refund?

A: In the very unlikely situation of a cancellation. We would certainly want to ensure that all our customers were satisfied. We would consider any refund policy on that basis.


Q: When will Vietnam reinstate Visas for Chinese citizens?

A: We are working closely with the relevant authorities to monitor the status of Visa entry for Chinese citizens. We will make any relevant information available as soon as we have it.

Thanks and best regards,

F1 VinFast Vietnam Grand Prix CS Team
