The Hanoi Vietnam Grand Prix will not appear on the 2021 Formula 1 calendar, ESPN recognized.
The first race was cancelled this year because of the COVID 19 pandemic, but is expected to be back on the calendar next year.
However, with the arrest of the chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee, Nguyen Duk Chung, one of the main supporters of the race, the race will not appear on the calendar for 2021 and its long-term future remains uncertain.

The circuit east of Hanoi, which is partly a road circuit and partly a permanent racing circuit, was completed in February this year and would be the first brand new circuit added to the calendar by the owners of Formula One Liberty Media, who took over the sport in 2017.
The Vietnamese slot on the 25th. April remained on the provisional calendar of the TBC for 2021, to be published on the Tuesday before the signing by the FIA World Motor Sport Council.
An alternative in Vietnam is the Sepang circuit in Malaysia, as well as the Algarve circuit in Portugal, Imola in Italy and Istanbul Park in Turkey, which this year were filled according to the COVID calendar.

F1 stays with Interlagos

After months of speculation, the Brazilian Grand Prix will continue at the Interlagos circuit in 2021, instead of moving to a new circuit in Rio de Janeiro.
The highway to Rio de Janeiro has not yet been built, and the plans are controversial because they would have led to the felling of thousands of trees in the Camboata forest.
ESPN plans to sign the five-year contract with Interlagos’ new promoter, Tamas Rohoney, who signed a contract in 2017 with outgoing CEO Bernie Ecclestone for three F1 races between 2018 and 2020.
Otherwise, the 2021 calendar follows the same order as the races in the original calendar for 2020.
One of the changes is that the Dutch circuit of Zandvoort, where the race last took place in 1985, is part of the triple circuit linking the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa Francorchamps and the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. Another triple title will be the Grand Prix of Russia, Singapore and Japan.
The U.S. Grand Prix takes place on the 24th. October in Austin.
The season starts with the Australian Grand Prix on the 21st. March to Melbourne.
Formula 1 hopes that after this year’s races the fans will be able to return to the circuit behind closed doors or with a very limited number of participants.
