hanoi hell Inside the deserted £540m F1 circuit planned for the Vietnamese GP before it was canned when mayor was sent to jail

Vietnam signed a 10-year deal with F1 back in 2018 – an agreement which cost around £54million and was to be funded by private conglomerate, VinGroup. State media then claimed in 2022 that authorities had dismissed any hope of Vietnam staging a race there until at least 2029. The 3.5 mile circuit, which is surrounded by grass and weeds, is partly fenced off to the public. And another part of the circuit has been opened up for the Vietnamese people to use as public roads. It is not yet known if, when or what the circuit will be used for in the future.
