The Hanoi Circuit is a unique racetrack that will test drivers to their limits. The circuit – a special hybrid of existing street and purpose-built sections located in downtown Hanoi, runs to 5,607m in length and includes 23 turns as well as a back straight that - at 1.6km long, will see cars hit speeds of up to 335 km/h. Designed by renowned track architects Tilke Engineers (Germany) in partnership with F1’s Motorsport division, the circuit is a sign of F1’s dedication to creating tracks that deliver the best racing possible. With nods to classic circuits such as Monaco, Suzuka and the Nürburgring, the Hanoi Circuit’s design is a mixture of tight turns, long straights, challenging ‘esses’ and plenty of overtaking zones that will require drivers to perform at their very best and ensure fans witness a thrilling racing spectacle. 

The race is expected to attract about 300,000 participants and hundreds of international reporters. Currently, the construction progress of the race is still in schedule, and the attraction of the Formula 1 Hanoi race is getting hotter with F1 fans as well as domestic and international visitors.
