FIA Race Director and Safety Delegate Charlie Whiting has visited the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, which hosts the United States Grand Prix in November.
His visit followed Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix, and the purpose was to check on the progress being made at the Texan track.
"It is clear that the significant resources Circuit of The Americas has committed to completing this facility on time and to FIA specifications is making a difference," he said following the visit. "The more than 500 construction workers on site daily are making great progress, and I plan to return to Austin at the end of August for an update.
"My formal pre-race inspection is set for September 25, which is 60 days before the scheduled start of the Grand Prix. From the world-class motorsports facilities and fan areas to the racecourse itself, which promises to be one of the most challenging new additions to our season, I believe Circuit of The Americas has the ability to put on a great show and spectacular Grand Prix in its inaugural year. I look forward to my next visit in August."
Tickets for the event went on sale to the general public at the weekend.
