Vietnam launched construction of a race circuit in the capital Hanoi where the Southeast Asian city will host its first Formula 1 race next year.

The Vietnamese Grand Prix scheduled for April 2020 is the latest street race on the F1 calendar along with Monaco, Singapore and Azerbaijan.

"I look forward to seeing you in a year's time on the starting grid," International Motoring Federation president Jean Todt said at a ceremony to lay the foundation stone of the circuit.

The 5.565-kilometer circuit is scheduled to be completed by March next year.
