It would be great to replicate the old Interlagos circuit.

The most interesting circuit layout that we lost.
Always find the gap then use it.

Yes, it seems "Liberty" media uses the exact same mindset as Bernie.

Another relatively poor country that would be better spending the tens of millions of dollars on providing for their population rather than the F1 circus.
perhaps it will do some good for the country. Vietnam is a generally low skilled mass produce locked in a battle to keep wages down or loose business. hosting something like an f1 event allows the residents opportunity to learn new skills and different culture. which might all help in the long run.

and at least its not another oil Barron nation putting on a pr event to try and take focus away from its awful treatment of its people... Bahrain

I get the point of your question, which is we don't know, but from the supposedly leaked image its about 1.6km. But the total distance is only 5km and I remember seeing it would be 7km, so wouldn't put much faith in the leaked images. What's the longest straight in F1 today? I believe more official information is to be released tomorrow (wednesday).

The first rule of being an F1 fan is that all new tracks are terrible and boring.

Istanbul was also a new track, but that was a rather awesome track both for fans and for the drivers.

It would be a good idea to have a picture of the layout before we judge the track.
