WHITING HAPPY WITH AUSTIN CIRCUIT PROGRESS A large swathe of F1’s commercial hitters were in Austin last week, making contacts and hovering up contracts. But the most significant personality to touch down at the Texan state capital’s Bergstom airport was FIA race director Charlie Whiting, who brought a clipboard to make checks of the Circuit Of The Americas. The 3.4 -mile circuit is scheduled to host its inaugural race on November 18, and work is continuing on in order to have the track ready in time. Whiting said he is happy with the progress and is scheduled to make a final pre-race inspection of the circuit in September when hopefully it’ll get the official FIA sign-off. "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," Whiting said. "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 United States Grand Prix."
