In addition, an area has been zoned off for the construction of a control centre, a grandstand, warehouse, parking lot and helipads to serve racing teams and spectators.

Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung emphasised that Hanoi believes the world’s most attractive race will be organised on schedule and meet the expectations of Vietnamese people as well as F1 lovers worldwide.

The race will also help promote the image of Vietnam and Hanoi to the world, he added.

The track is expected to be complete in March 2020, as the race is set to take place in the summer of that year.

Vietnam will be the third Southeast Asian country to host a F1 race, after Malaysia and Singapore.
