Vietnam Grand Prix Cancelled Due To COVID-19 Pandemic


ISLAMABAD:    Vietnam’s 2020 Formula One Grand Prix has been cancelled, organisers said on Friday, but there was no word on whether the race would take place next year. Planned for early April, the Grand Prix in Hanoi was set to be the third race of the season and the first ever held in the communist nation. But after Shanghai and Melbourne were axed as the coronavirus began to spread across the globe, Vietnam’s event was also postponed — throwing the season into chaos.
The announcement from local organisers confirmed the race would not be rescheduled for later in the year.
“We are unable to welcome the most exciting and prestigious motorsport series on the planet to Vietnam in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Le Ngoc Chi, CEO of the Vietnam Grand Prix Corporation.
“This was a very difficult decision for all of us to make but ultimately it was the only solution after carefully reviewing all safety criteria as well as the efficiency under current conditions.”
