Tickets – 2021 Vietnam Grand Prix

Your guide to buying tickets for the 2021 Vietnam Grand Prix in Hanoi on April 23-25, including the best grandstands and hospitality suites.

 

Please Note: The 2021 Vietnam Grand Prix has not yet been officially added to the 2021 Formula 1 calendar. This post will be updated when the race is confirmed and ticket sales begin.

The new Hanoi Street Circuit is located in the Nam Từ Liêm district of Hanoi. Measuring 5.565km and featuring 22 turns, the circuit is characterized by several long straights and hairpin turns – the latter should provide some of the best vantage points. Tickets are priced from a reasonable $75 USD for 3-day General Admission tickets through to $390 USD for Premium Grandstands. Although it’s a brand new circuit, you do get what you pay for and the higher priced grandstands are likely to have much better views than the cheaper grandstands and General Admission areas.

Vietnam Grand Prix tickets: Need to Know

  • Single-day tickets are available in general admission and all grandstands on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Prices start from $30 for Friday tickets to General Admission through to $312 for Sunday tickets to Premium Grandstands (Starting Grid, Turn 1, Turn 2-3-4).
  • Children with a height under 1m will be given free entrance tickets when accompanied by relatives who buy at least two unreserved Grandstand tickets. Not applicable to any other ticket types or classes.
  • Tickets are transferable.

2021 Vietnam Grand Prix Ticket Categories

  • General Admission Tickets: the cheapest tickets provide circuit entry, but no reserved seat. With no natural elevation, the views are not expected to be great. You’ll probably be looking at catch fencing as the cars pass you at speed on the straight. On the positive side, the organizers have indicated that big screen TVs will be available in all spectator areas, and you’ll also be able to check out the F1 Fanzone and get access to trackside concerts and entertainment.
  • Grandstand Tickets: three types of grandstand tickets are available in Vietnam. The cheapest 10.5 grandstand offers unreserved seating, there are two mid-range “standard” grandstands at Turns 7-8 and 12, and three “premium” grandstands located on the start-finish straight, Turn 1 and Turns 2-3-4.  Of these, the grandstand wrapping around Turns 2-3-4 looks to be the pick of the bunch.
  • Hospitality Tickets: in addition to the Formula 1 Paddock Club, several mid-range hospitality options are offered in Hanoi, including the Diamond Suite at the top of the grandstand on Turns 2-3-4 and three locations for F1 Experiences Champions Club.

  1. Dear Andrew,

    Any idea if there will be a free Friday, as in all grandstands freely accessible for every ticket holder?

    Cheers!

      1. Thanks. Already thought so, as I couldn’t find any information on it myself either. Will see if this GP will last. No established motorsport culture, ridiculously expensive ticket prices particularly for (southeast) Asian standards, I don’t think this one is gonna last very long

        1. I don’t recommend going the first year, for sure. I think the event will have plenty of organizational issues. But hopefully it can establish itself over the longer term. We will see!

    1. No idea Lucas, but probably not. It’s not a traditional street circuit, more of a hybrid street circuit. I can’t imagine you’ll be able to watch for free, but perhaps from some neighbouring buildings. Sorry, I guess we will find out in April!

    Hi Steve,

    We are going to Vietnam and would like to take in the race, however not yet comfortable paying the high price with so many unknowns.

    Do tickets typically drop in price closer to the date if poor sales?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    1. Hi Paul, tickets don’t normally drop in price due to poor sales. Perhaps the organizers will do some kind of promotion, but I doubt it.
      I’d personally not be going to the first year. I have a feeling there will be some organizational issues; always better to go to year 2 once they’ve sorted out everything.

      1. Hi Steve

        I went to Suzuka this year and was exasperated with how poorly located it was and the fact that prepaid tickets had to be collected from one location manned by two staff servicing thousands of people. The lack of basic amenity in GA was also deplorable, but I am still glad I made the effort. I can’t imagine Hanoi will be any worse yet Suzuka has been a F1 track for years. I will be going to Hanoi and have high hopes. A bit of positivity and optimism wouldn’t hurt.

        Regards

  3. Hi,

    I purchased tickets for Premium Grandstand at Turns 2-3-4. I’m very excited for my first F1 race! I’ve lived in VN for six years so I understand there will be a ton of issues but I’m going anyways! ha!

    Two questions:

    1) With these tickets do we have access to any other areas besides grandstand seats, fanzone, and trackside entertainment? We have the tickets for all three days so it would be great to walk around and get closer access and different point of views.

    2) Our seats are in Row 1. Is that good or bad? Being close is good, but will we be “too close” or right up against a fence with restricted views?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Scott, you should have access to the General admission viewing areas at the circuit with your grandstand seat. Best place to check these out is on Friday, when there are less spectators attending. As for Row 1, that normally means at the front – but I can’t confirm how they do the numbering in Vietnam. Normally this is not good as you will have the view obstructed by the catch fencing. Higher up in grandstands you can often see above the fencing. But I guess you will have to wait and find out. This is a brand new circuit so we don’t have all the info yet!

  4. Hi Scott!

    I’ll be Vietnam during this race and would love to attend my first F1 race. Looking at ticket options there does not seem to be a Sunday only ticket. Is this normal or will they offer them at a later date? Like I said, my first F1 race so am unfamiliar.

    Cheers,
    Eric

  5. Hi.
    I can’t seem to find a ticket that includes the main concerts. It all says fanzone and entertainment areas but also says doesn’t include the main concert. Could you advise on which ticket includes the concerts please. Thanks.

    1. As far as I’m aware, all tickets in Vietnam will include access to the concerts. But I haven’t seen the artists or more information announced yet.

    2. Hi can you tell me would you expect to see touts at the event as i have bought GA Tickets as im not so keen on paying crazy prices but id like to think on the day i might get a bargain

      1. Hi Adam, this is a hard question to answer given that it’s the first race in Hanoi. I would also never recommend buying from touts as they may be selling fake tickets (this happens in China, for example).

    1. Hi, the race hasn’t been officially cancelled yet, only postponed. As soon as there is an official decision about the cancellation, you should receive information from the ticket company about refunds.
