Formula 1 2019 Race in Vietnam Circuit Soon?
Formula 1 may be close to adding three races to its 2019 schedule.
German media outlet Auto Motor und Sport reports that Liberty Media Corporation (which owns F1) is working on deals with Vietnam, Miami and Argentina.
The report said the Vietnamese venue is a street circuit in the capital Hanoi, while Miami will be another city course.
Argentina, meanwhile, would take place on a development of the old circuit in Buenos Aires. Argentina last hosted an F1 race in 1998.
"According to our information, Hanoi and Miami will almost certainly be on the calendar next year," Auto Motor und Sport reports.
"In Buenos Aires, financing of the track renewal and the entry fee is not yet clear."
Former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone (picture below) recently said he came close to agreeing on a deal for a Vietnamese Grand Prix a few years ago.
"The deal I could have signed with Vietnam would have been $64 million," he told Forbes. "(Liberty) are going to get the deal done with the people in Vietnam for sure."
