Construction work has begun on building the Vietnam Grand Prix circuit, with FIA president Jean Todt hoping the new race will inspire a greater motorsport tradition in the country. A part street circuit course through Hanoi will be introduced to the calendar from next year.
The new race will add another event to Asia, following the departure of Malaysia after the end of 2018, with events in Korea and India also coming and going in recent years.
