Korean Grand Prix organizers say their Formula 1 circuit remains on course to be finished in August following a visit by FIA race director Charlie Whiting last week.
Although the asphalt has yet to be laid at the Korea International Circuit, Whiting was able to inspect construction progress at the venue, including the completed race control tower, main grandstand, and pit garages. A statement issued by the organizing group said that Whiting was satisfied with the state of progress, with his next inspection due for the end of August.
Race chief Yung Cho Chung said: "[We] welcomed Charlie Whiting for a site inspection of the Korea International Circuit, as well as for meetings relating to our preparations for the Formula 1 Korean Grand Prix. As anticipated, we had a successful visit and we are confident the drivers, teams and Formula 1 fans will enjoy the Korea International Circuit."
