From the year 2020, a thrilling new place will decorate F1's calendar as Vietnam fascinates a dazzling new street with an iconic and culturally rich capital of Hanoi …
Vietnam will become F1's fourth floor racing circuit, which was linked to Monaco, Singapore and Azerbaijan with a unique 22-round 5,565 km track. It is also the fourth Asian competition in China, Japan and Singapore.
The F1 Motor Sports Team has worked with the renowned circuit company Tilke to create a semi-permanent track track using both existing and intentionally built roads.
Let's see what we can expect to see in April 2020 …
Inspiration from all over the world
F1 is blessed with a number of fantastic rounds and corner sets scattered across the world's major racing circuits, so making a new track makes it sensible to take inspiration from them.
This was exactly what the architects of the American Circuit of America Center, the current home of the United States Grand Prix. They attracted creativity from the fast Maggotts-Becketts-Chapel series Silverstone and Istanbul's multi-tip Turn 8 mm.
The same strategy was also used on Vietnam's new track, located to the west of the city, near the My Dinh National Stadium. And that means it's not a typical street circuit – far from it …
The goal was to create a unique hybrid plan that combines the characteristics of the cathedral line with the permanent layout of the countryside within the topography of the city.
There was a real desire to steer away from the 90-degree tier-type corners and to develop a layout that facilitates the bike's wheelchair while retaining the feel of a closed street that makes mileage so demanding for drivers.
Translations 1 and 2 are based on Germany's Nurburgring opening corners – referred to as the red zone. In 2006, you can remember Juan Pablo Montoya sweeping Giancarlo Fisichel using a long straight slipstream and completing his pass brake in Turn 1.
Translations 12-15 can also look familiar. They have been inspired by some of the famous Monacon roundabout, Turn 1 and driven up the hill to Massenet.
The next 16-19 secs have high-speed changes that resemble Suzuka's wide symbolic Esesia, while the last three corners inspire Malaysian Sepang – a quick left-right and tightening radius.
This tedious and challenging final series that fills the round offers opportunities for mistakes and opens the door, braking the driver to pick up the slipstream and launch an attack on the first round.
How the design was born
You will not be surprised that it has been a long process.
The Hanoi feasibility team presented proposals on potential locations, rails, and associated CAD (Computer Aided Design) F1 Motorsports Team, which later built a circuit simulation simulation simulation simulation model.
It was at this point that the anticipated car speeds, G-forces and total flow and circuit characteristics could be estimated.
The final design is the climax of F1's Motorsports team, the PCB company Tilke (who has been responsible for designing many of F1's best tracks), Hanoi's city authorities and competitor co-operation, and the FIA's governing body about the process.
What drivers and fans can expect
Certainly, the participants must treat a lot of actions – not the processions. Drivers, in turn, test their skills to the limit.
The circuit has a slow-fast hairpin and technical slow-to-medium angle combinations, fast essays and flat angles and long straight lines – one of which is 1.5 kilometers long and with expected speeds of 335 km / h by speed trap.
The emerging two sectors are lurking towards slower turns and longer straight, while the last sector will pay for the cornerstones.
Long straight lines form a challenge for teams as they have to balance blade levels in order to maximize the speed in straightforward, while being formed downwards to attack and defend through the angular sequences.
Interestingly, the pit of the pit also has no final and first corners that should reduce the completion of the site and hence the attractiveness and viability of multi-track strategy.
F1 representatives have already made a number of visits to the site when Charlie Whiting's F1 competition leader FIA has also been in the process of approving the circuits as long as they are satisfied with the approval of the circuits, as long as they are satisfied with the design safety and fulfilling the highest prerequisite for their class 1 Host F1 ) requirements.
April 2020 may seem like a while away, but much is the time to do before – often the project is just about to start! The district and building detail plans must be signed together with building project plans and site design approval. When they are ready, the ground can be manufactured before the construction phase.
The process of building a startup competition is now up to the beginning of the event. Roll on 2020!
