Vietnam has postponed the inaugural F1 VinFast Vietnam Grand Prix 2020, the first-ever F1 GP to be hosted in the country.

“This is a tough decision as 2020 is the year Vietnam became one of the 22 official hosts of the F1 race,” the organisers told Nhan Dan the official news channel of the Communist Party of Vietnam.
