Circuit of The Americas workers are on schedule ahead of the venue's maiden Grand Prix later this year, with track President Steve Sexton stating that the progress being made is surpassing everybody's expectations. In addition, the FIA's Charlie Whiting was said to be 'very pleased' following a recent visit to the Austin site.
"We're in the time of year now where we've a lot of daylight and no rain, and so we're making more progress than we even thought we'd make," Sexton told Reuters.
"We're on schedule to be complete. (Formula 1 Race Director) Charlie Whiting was at our site two or three weeks ago and took a look at it and said we're doing fantastic. He was very pleased."
Sexton went on to explain that Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone is also satisfied with the progress made, airing no major concerns at present.
"He seems happy at the moment but there's nothing the matter with high standards," he added. "He drives a hard bargain but with the same token he has a great respect for the people that he works with and thus the venues have a great respect for him."
The returning United States Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on the weekend of 16-18 November, marking the penultimate round of this year's campaign.
