The first ever Formula 1 race in Vietnam starts on April 5 in Hanoi. According to the organizers of the Grand Prix, the main work on the circuit has already been completed.
At the moment, the finishing works relate to temporary facilities, such as grandstands, teams' hospitalities, media center building and medical center.
"This is a major milestone for us to celebrate as we come closer to staging Vietnam's first ever F1 race weekend in just over a month's time," Motorsport.com reports the words of the event's CEO Le Ngoc Chi.
"With the help of everyone at Tilke and F1's motorsport division, we feel confident in saying that this track will be one of the most challenging and exciting on the F1 calendar and we look forward to it quickly becoming a fan favourite."
Despite active preparations, it is possible the first Vietnamese race will be postponed or canceled due to the Coronavirus outbreak. The Chinese Grand Prix has been already postponed.
At the moment, the races in Vietnam and even Bahrain are also at risk, as they are located close to the center of the spread of the virus. The FIA has not yet issued any information on these Grand Prix, the situation is under monitoring and control.
