Watch: Drone footage of ongoing work at Vietnam GP & Dutch GP F1 circuits
The former is seeing a brand new build-up while the latter is upgrading its facility.
Fresh drone footage have been released by local media showcasing the construction work of Vietnam GP and Dutch GP F1 circuits.
While Vietnam GP is seeing a brand new construction in Hanoi near the My Dinh Stadium, the Dutch GP has renovation work on-going at Circuit Zandvoort, as the two F1 circuits are getting ready for their debut and return, respectively, in 2020.
The Vietnam GP is first on the 2020 F1 calendar with the race taking place on April 3-5, following the races in Australia and Bahrain. It is another Asian addition and first since the Indian GP, as a possible replacement for Malaysian GP, which dropped out.
The 5.607km street circuit is seemingly on schedule, even with the addition of a 23rd corner, which was confirmed by F1 earlier this month. The tickets are on sale as well, as the grand prix is now less than 100 days away from its debut.
The official channel has been updating as much regarding the construction work but its limited still, as local media have started following the preparation. A new drone video surfaced online on Sunday, which showcases the F1 pit building and new roads.
Here's the video in Vietnamese language:
At the same time, there are also sound updates from Zandvoort regarding the renovation work for Dutch GP (May 1-3). The new banked corner is much talked upon but there are several other things which is being worked upon to upgrade its facility.
My partner MsportXtra, though his associate in the Netherlands, uploaded a new drone footage of the ongoing work at Zandvoort at sunrise. They are expected to upload more such videos with due permission from the organisers.
The circuit has 23 corners which is same as Singapore.
The Netherlands-based circuit allowed selected media to get a tour of the work.
