First Look At The Hanoi Circuit in F1 2020

Codemasters have released a new preview video of their upcoming F1 2020 title, showing off a piece of content that is brand new to the franchise, giving us a first look at the Hanoi Circuit.

Home of the future Vietnamese Grand Prix, the Hanoi Street Circuit has been designed by Herman Tilke, it’s 5.3 kilometer layout will incorporate 23 turns, also including one of the calendar’s longest straights at 1.5 kilometers in length.

Since the originally-planned debut of the Vietnamese Grand Prix in April did not happen due to Covid-19, the Hanoi Circuit will make its debut in the virtual world before the first real-world race has been run on the track.

Coming to PCs and current-get gaming consoles on July 10, the release of F1 2020 will likely coincide with the start of the shortened real-life Formula One season.

Aside from including all cars, tracks & drivers from the upcoming Formula One season, F1 2020 will also bring 16 historical F1 cars going back to the early 90s, the Michael Schumacher Deluxe Edition will include a further four historical cars from the German’s iconic career.

F1 2020 is available for pre-order here.
