Video: Simulated onboard lap of Vietnam circuit

NEWS STORY

Video released by Tilke GmbH & Co reveals simulated onboard footage of a lap of the circuit due to host the Vietnamese Grand Prix next year.

"The first section reminds me of the Mercedes Arena at the Nurburgring," Carsten Tilke, son of track architect Hermann Tilke, tells Motorsport-Magazin.com.

"The track has very varied passages with high-speed turns, modelled to some extent on the Esses at Suzuka, and long straights that provide good overtaking opportunities with hard braking points.

"Overall, it is a very challenging track, on which to race and will certainly produce plenty of racing action," said Tilke of the 22-turn circuit on the outskirts of Hanoi. "It will not be easy to post a perfect lap on this track."

The simulation was created with software developed by Tilke’s engineering and architecture company, which predicts a lap time of 1:36.2 around the 3.458 mile (5.565 km) circuit where the top speed on the 0.93 miles (1.5 km) main straight is expected to reach 208 mph (335 km/h).

"Looks like the Valencia circuit. The only chances to overtake is via DRS on the straights, otherwise it is a high speed procession.

They may as well show that simulation 52 times in a row and save money on the TV coverage of the race."

"Seems to be very much a ‘point and squirt’ Circuit. All long straights and tight corners. "

"It is funny (or scary?) how F1 changed hands, but track design remained family monopoly, and they don`t even bother any more - just take that COTA section and connect it with some straights..."
