Sep.23 (GMM/Inautonews.com) The FIA on Friday sounded confident ahead of India’s inaugural grand prix next month.
With the Buddh circuit still to be formally homologated by the governing body, a Spanish newspaper this week said the situation at the Delhi site is “alarming”.
Photos appeared to show that the track is “not only not complete but very far from it”, the Marca daily reported.
There have also been concerns about tax payable to the Indian government by teams and drivers, as well as security concerns following the recent Delhi bombings.
On Friday, the FIA discussed the situation during a meeting in Singapore of the World Motor Sport Council.
“The (council) received positive reports on the ongoing situation in the preparation of the Indian grand prix from the Indian representative of the (council) and the formula one commercial rights holder,” a statement read.
