Vietnam's Hanoi capital will host Formula One (F1) auto race for the first time in April 2020, the municipal authorities announced on Wednesday.

Liberty Media has agreed a deal with VinGroup on a multi-year contract to host a race within the streets of Hanoi, as the sport aims to break new ground.

The first Hanoi Grand Prix will be staged in 2020, Formula One boss Chase Carey confirmed on Wednesday (Nov 7) as he laid out plans to expand motorsport's premier championship in Asia.

"Hosting Formula 1 races in Hanoi will open us many opportunities for business, tourist development (and) advertise the image of Vietnam and image of Hanoi to the world", Chung said. We are thrilled to be here in Hanoi, one of the most exciting cities in the world right now with such a rich history and an incredible future ahead of it.

"We are delighted to announce that Hanoi will host a Formula 1 Grand Prix", Carey said.

The reproduction of the story/photograph in any form will be liable for legal action. It's the first race to be announced under the Liberty Media ownership of F1, and will occur on a 5.565km street circuit in the centre of Hanoi.

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

The formula 1 will be in April 2020 its race debut in Vietnam.

There's a lot of work to do, even at this point of the year". "We keep our head down and try our best". He is going to want to win it his own way. "I want to win by winning the race myself".

Formula One races are costly affairs requiring deep pockets from host countries.

The now-not-so-new owners needed to bring in a street circuit, having made so much noise on their arrival that it was their desire to add more to the calendar.

Vietnam's concept of what grand prix racing should be about matches our vision for the sport.

"Part of the track will be built there, which doesn't exist at the moment".

"We are excited to see that our work with Formula 1 to secure this deal has finally come to fruition".

With all that in mind, Formula 1 promises slow-speed hairpin turns, high-speed esses and flat-out corners, and a very long, 1.5 km (0.9 miles) stretch of straight road, on which drivers and cars are expected to reach speeds of 335 km/h (208 mph).

Vietnamese officials see the race as an opportunity to boost both domestic and worldwide tourism, while Vingroup sees it as a chance to tell the world about its own car-manufacturing ambitions.
