Earlier this year, F1's American owners' Liberty Media were forced to put plans for a race in Miami on hold after opposition from local groups.

Vietnam will host a Formula 1 grand prix for the first time in 2020.

The Hanoi round of the championship, which will be run on a 5.565-kilometer circuit, will be the fourth street race on the calendar along with Monaco, Singapore and Azerbaijan.

Formula One has 21 races listed on a tentative calendar for 2019. Its CEO Nguyen Viet Quang said: "Vingroup wants to bring this race to Vietnam because of the general benefits to the society such as more jobs will be created, the infrastructure of Hanoi will be upgraded, and other bigger worldwide events will be encouraged to take place in Vietnam".

Niantic is celebrating 6 year anniversary since the release of Ingress and new updated version of Ingress has been launched. With GO now almost two-and-a-half years into its lifespan, Niantic has been able to return some of its focus to its own IP.

Located on the western side of Hanoi city in the vicinity of My Dinh National Stadium, the street track is ideal for wheel-to-wheel racing while retaining a closed-in street feel that makes city race tracks so demanding for drivers, confirms Formula One officials.

Numerous turns derive their inspiration from that seen elsewhere - supposedly, turns one and two are based on the opening corners of Nurbugring, while 12 to 15 are reminiscent of turn one and the climb to Massenet in Monaco, while Suzuka's esses give turns 16 to 19 their flow.

The sequence from Turns 16 to 19 are "reminiscent" of the Esses at Suzuka, while the final three corners are based on Sepang, a fast left-right followed by a tightening radius entry.

The circuit features a range of corners from a slow-speed hairpin and technical slow- to medium-speed corner combinations to high-speed esses and flat-out corners and long straights - one of which is 1.5km in length, with expected speeds of 335kmph through the speed trap.
