The Hanoi Street Circuit has a total length of approximately 5.6 kilometres with 23 turning corners, including the available street sections and also newly built ones.

The track was co-designed by F1’s Motorsports team and Germany company Tilke to the highest standards of an F1 race.

The road surface of the track is covered with three layers of exclusive asphalt that meets the requirements of friction and smoothness, ensuring the road surface will not be kicked up when the racers show off their talent with speeds of up to 335km per hour.

Earlier, the 300m pit building, a symbol of the Hanoi F1 circuit, was also finalised. Meanwhile, the remaining auxiliary works, including grandstands, media and health centres, reception areas for teams, the logistics area, stations for commentators, and safety barriers, are in the final stage of construction.

The Vietnam F1 Grand Prix will be the third stage of the 2020 F1 season, following the previous two stages in Melbourne (Australia) and Bahrain.
