LONDON, Nov 10 (Reuters) - The Vietnamese Grand Prix was dropped from a draft 2021 calendar published by Formula One on Tuesday that featured a record 23 races, with a first ever round in Saudi Arabia.
Vietnam was due to host a street race in Hanoi for the first time last April, but that was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The absence of the grand prix on next year’s calendar has been attributed to local issues. The April 25 slot was left vacant, with various circuits in the frame. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin; Editing by Alex Richardson)
