The organiser of Vietnam’s first Formula One grand prix on Friday stated it has cancelled the race, having already postponed the occasion initially scheduled for April as a result of COVID-19 pandemic.
“This has been an extremely difficult but necessary decision to reach in view of the continued uncertainty caused by the global coronavirus pandemic,” Vietnam Grand Prix Corp stated in an emailed assertion. It stated it’ll refund all tickets offered.
The Southeast Asian nation has recorded over 1,110 COVID-19 infections, with 35 deaths, Ministry of Health information confirmed.
In July, Hanoi metropolis authorities stated the race might be held in November.
Later in July, Formula One scrapped all 4 of the season’s races within the Americas as a result of pandemic and added three in Europe.
