Oct.29 (GMM/Inautonews.com) F1 circuit designer Hermann Tilke received a pat on the back on Friday after drivers enjoyed his latest effort.

The German engineer has been criticised for the ‘boring’ layouts at many of his latest formula one venues, including those in Bahrain, Valencia and Abu Dhabi.

“You are always nervous, there is no routine,” Tilke told DPA news agency when he arrived in India this week ahead of the brand new Buddh track’s first ever race.

But when Nico Rosberg emerged from his Mercedes at the end of the first practice session in Delhi, he immediately sought out Tilke to say ‘well done’ in person.

“This is the best track Hermann has ever built,” Rosberg confirmed.
