FIA safety delegate Charlie Whiting has visited the venue of the Korean Grand Prix and, according to organisers, he is satisfied with the progress of the circuit.

Construction is set to be completed at the end of August, with the main grandstands and pit complex already built. Whiting inspected race control, where he will direct the grand prix from this October, and also walked the track.

President of the construction firm behind the circuit 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 One Korean Grand Prix.

"As anticipated, we had a successful visit and we are confident the drivers, teams and Formula One fans will enjoy the Korea International Circuit."
