Vietnam to host F1 auto race in 2020

2018 Mexican GP MEXICO Top 5 moments from the weekend

The British Grand Prix venue has activated a break clause in its contract, meaning a new deal must be negotiated for F1 to stay there from 2020.

There has not been any public progress on negotiating a new deal.

In an interview issued by F1 ahead of this weekend's Brazilian GP, Bratches was asked if there was any likelihood of a historic race like Britain or Italy moving to a street track.

"We're a 68-year-old entity and the nature of grand prix racing is that it is dynamic", he said in a Formula One question and answer.

Now 12th in the driver's standings, Sainz's best performance in 79 Grand Prix races is a 4th place finish.

"We're very proud to be announcing this race in 2020", Carey told reporters in Hanoi as details of the event were unveiled.

"We'll continue to develop those options, and make sure we are able to make the best decisions both for fans and for racing and for us as a business, all those things matter, and we're actively engaged".


Bratches reminded fans that the British Grand Prix hasn't always been held at Silverstone, having previously being held at different venues in the past and states the importance of business interests.

The Scuderia driving tea, of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen crossed the line in 2nd and 3rd place respectively at Mexico, cutting MercedesAMGs' advantage to 55 points for the constructor's championship with 2 races remaining.

Brands and former-European GP venue Donington Park are not now at the required level, but earlier this year Red Bull boss Christian Horner claimed Liberty was still keen on pursuing a race in London.

"Hanoi has signed a 10-year contract, starting from 2020, with the F1 Group", chairman of the Hanoi People's Committee Nguyen Duc Chung said at a press briefing on Wednesday.

"We look at it in three ways".

Only Monza and Monte Carlo have hosted more grands prix than Silverstone, where the very first World Championship race was held in 1950.

Ecclestone told Reuters a year ago that he had talks with the Vietnamese about a race while he was in charge but had decided, despite the money on offer, against it because he felt there were enough in that part of the world already.
