Tickets – 2021 Vietnam Grand Prix

Filed in 2021 Vietnam Grand Prix Travel Guide by on 20 Comments

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

Please Note: The inaugural Vietnam Grand Prix (originally scheduled for April 3-5, 2020) was cancelled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. This post will be updated when dates are announced for the 2021 Vietnam Grand Prix and ticket sales begin. In the meantime, Official Ticket Packages from F1 Experiences are already available.

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.

2021 Vietnam Grand Prix Ticket Packages from F1 Experiences

F1 Experiences offers grandstand and hospitality packages for the 2021 Vietnam Grand Prix, as well as accommodation with daily transfers to and from the circuit. In addition to a weekend grandstand seat, Hero and Trophy Ticket Packages include a Paddock Club Reception with an F1 legend or current driver plus other unique benefits.

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. Paul says:

    If I buy grandstand tickets, do I have access to F1 Fanzone and trackside concerts and entertainment?

  2. Steve Newman says:

    Dear Andrew,

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

    Cheers!

    • Editor says:

      Not been announced. But if I had to take a guess, I don’t think this will be an option in Vietnam. Hope I am wrong!

      • Steve Newman says:

        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

        • Editor says:

          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!

  3. Lucas says:

    Since Hanoi is a street circuit so is there any places I can watch free.

    • Editor says:

      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!

  4. Paul Darlington says:

    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

    • Editor says:

      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.

      • Michael says:

        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
        Michael

    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!

    • Editor says:

      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!

  6. Eric says:

    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

  7. Candice says:

    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.

    • Editor says:

      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.

    • Adam says:

      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

      • Editor says:

        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).

  8. Anonymous says:

    Hi when can I expect a refund for my tickets?

    • Editor says:

      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.
