The circuit features 22 turns over the total length and will become the F1’s 4th treet race along with Monaco, Singapore and Azerbaijan.

Some cues of the Ha Noi track have been taken from existing F1 tracks, with the tight Turns 1 and 2 modelled on the opening sequence at the Nurburgring.

The section out of Turn 12 will weave through the barriers in a manner similar to the climb out of Sainte Devote in Monaco.

A later section of the track - through Turns 16 to 19 - is similar to the Esses at Suzuka.

The circuit layout, created in collaboration with ubiquitous F1 designer Hermann Tilke, also features long straights, one of which is 1.5km in length and should see cars reach speeds of around 335km/h (208mph).

This major event will give to Viet Nam and particularly its capital an international exposure, FIA President Jean Todt said at the ceremony to lay the foundation stone of the circuit.

It is expected that construction work is scheduled to be completed by March 2020.
