Codemasters has released a new official trailer for F1 2020, showcasing the second new circuit for F1 2020. Having revealed Circuit Zandvoort earlier in the campaign, the development team heads to Vietnam for Hanoi Circuit.
As the press release reads, this city location fuses a street circuit’s characteristics with a permanent track layout. The lap, recorded by the F1 2020 development team, features Scuderia Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.
Hanoi Circuit is 5.613km long, features 23 turns and takes inspiration from iconic F1 circuits such as Suzuka, Monaco and Nürburgring. Designed for action and overtaking, with two incredibly long straights, it promises to be one of the fastest circuits in the F1® calendar. With one of the shortest pit lanes, which removes both the final and first corners, pit-stop strategy could play a pivotal role in staying ahead of the competition.
Lee Mather, F1 Franchise Game Director at Codemasters, said:
“We’re always excited to create new experiences for our players. Hanoi Circuit delivers both thrills and challenges, set against the backdrop of the stunning city skyline. It will also be an adrenaline rush with high speeds, long straights and heavy braking zones, but it will punish anyone who doesn’t respect the walled sections.”
Dr, Carsten Tilke, Managing Director and Partner at Tilke GmbH & Co. KG, added:
“Hanoi Circuit offers a unique city circuit layout with several overtaking possibilities and high-speed corner combinations. Codemasters has done a great job recreating Hanoi Circuit, and the track will provide a new challenge for all players.”
