hanoi hell Inside the eerie abandoned £540m F1 circuit as Vietnamese GP axed from calendar after mayor jailed for 10 years

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. But the inaugural edition of the Vietnam GP ended up being axed due to the coronavirus pandemic. State media then claimed last year that authorities had dismissed any hope of Vietnam staging a race there until at least 2029. F1 released the 2023 calendar last month, with Vietnam once again missing out. 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.
