The F1 race will be held in April and work is well underway building the new track and grandstands.

Tickets for the event have already gone on sale.

Now f1vietnamgp.com have released a series of artist impressions of what fans can expect when Lewis Hamilton and co come to town.

German design company Tilke GmbH & Co KG have been involved in creating the racetrack which will be 5.5km long and contain 22 different turns.

CEO Carsten Tilke told Motorsport-Magazine: "The first section reminds me of the Mercedes Arena at the Nürburgring.

 

"Also, the track has very varied passages with high-speed turns, modeled to some extent on the Esses at Suzuka, and long straights that provide good overtaking opportunities with hard braking points.

"Overall, it is a very challenging track, on which to race and will certainly produce plenty of racing action. It will not be easy to post a perfect lap on this track."
