Formula One has reached a deal to stage a race on the streets of Vietnam's capital city.
The grand prix, which will take place in Hanoi, has been mooted for some time, but was officially confirmed by F1 officials on Wednesday.
The street race will be staged from 2020 onwards, and it becomes the first new addition to the calendar in the post-Bernie Ecclestone era.
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.
While there are just two of this year's record-equalling 21 races remaining, Wednesday's announcement, coupled with a potential Miami race in 2020, could now see that tally increase to 23, despite resistance from some teams.
The inaugural Vietnam Grand Prix, pencilled in for April 2020, will take place over a 3.46-mile track on a combination of existing and newly-built roads.
