F1 announced that a "multi-year contract" had been agreed for the organization of races, but the term of office was not announced.
To confirm the deal, the Chief Executive and Chief Executive of Formula One said: "Since joining the sport in 2017, we've talked about developing new destinations to enhance Formula One's appeal. The Vietnamese Grand Prix is a realization of this ambition.
We are thrilled to be here in Hanoi, one of the most exciting cities in the world with such a rich history and incredible future.
"This is the perfect formula for Grand Prix racing and I am looking forward to making it a true highlight of the F1 calendar.
"Our motosport team has worked with the city of Hanoi and promoter Vingroup to create a racetrack that not only tests the riders, but also makes sure our fans enjoy the race spectacle."
That's exactly what this track does. The fourth road race of F1 hopes to be the fastest with three straights installed as part of the semi-permanent track. The longest of these is one and a half kilometers.
