The US F1 team claims that its HQ in Charlotte, North Carolina is complete and that work on the outfit's 2010 contender is underway.

A brief statement issued yesterday read as follows:

"Our world headquarters is now complete and fully functional, and the 2010 race car is in the construction phase. Thanks to our in-house design and engineering staff and the aid of our technical partners, for the last 10 to 12 months, the car has gone through thousands of iterations in a virtual environment.

"With this virtual design, we can test and be sure that it's right from structural, design and engineering standpoints, so we don't have to make a part, test it, break it and start again.

"Our timing is according to plan," said team principal Ken Anderson in the statement, "with an early November "roller" and a finished car in time for January 2010 testing."

Despite Bernie Ecclestone's claims in Singapore that US F1 might not make it to the grid next year, Anderson claims that things are progressing well.

"Building a team and a world-class manufacturing facility are a work-in-progress but we're ahead of schedule and are excited about going racing next year," said the American.
