"There was a close co-operation with the team at Formula 1 and the organisers at Hanoi to design the circuit," Carsten Tilke, the managing director of Tilke who is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company designing the circuit, told F1 Racing.

"They had a lot of input and we had many discussions about how we could create a good circuit, not only from a driving perspective, but to offer a lot of overtaking too.
