The Indian Grand Prix circuit has been given the thumbs up by Formula 1 race inspector Charlie Whiting, following the latest track inspection that took place on Thursday.
Whiting has kept close tabs on the ongoing construction of the Buddh circuit near Delhi, and has declared he is happy that the venue is on course for its inaugural grand prix on October 30.
In a statement issued by Vicky Chandhok, head of the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India, Whiting was said to be delighted that progress was more advanced that he had expected.
"He [Whiting] stated that the progress was more than satisfactory and exceeded expectations from when he last visited the site," said Chandhok. "He also expressed confidence that the inaugural Indian Grand Prix will be a huge success."
The final track licence that is mandatory for all F1 venues will take place in the week before the race, when the facility is complete.
