Days ago, former F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone said he came close to agreeing a deal for a Vietnamese grand prix a few years ago.

He told Forbes' Christian Sylt: "The deal I could have signed with Vietnam would have been $64 million, (Liberty) are going to get the deal done with the people in Vietnam for sure."
