The PM’s dream of Thailand hosting Formula One is still alive.

Srettha Thavisin says the kingdom has 3 potential locations for the event, namely U-Tapao Airport, Pattaya, and Bangkok. Since meeting with Formula One boss Stefano Domenicali in April, the PM says he’s convinced Thailand has what it takes to host the high-speed race.

Following a visit to U-Tapao Airport in Rayong and Jomtien Beach in Pattaya, Srettha says there are suitable locations in the kingdom, should Formula One bosses opt to hold the race there for the first time.

“In pursuing our F1 goal, the U-Tapao Airport project includes a facility for the “circuit race” type which provides maximum safety, while Bangkok and Pattaya are being assessed for the “city race” type with captivating City of Angels and scenic beachside race routes.”

The PM adds that Thailand is ready to build the Formula One circuit in 2027 or 2028, should the kingdom be chosen.

Other Asian countries hoping to host the race include South Korea and Indonesia. Singapore already hosts the race, with the Singapore Grand Prix taking place on the streets of the island state.
