The local Austin American Statesman reports that construction of the Circuit of the Americas is "moving along quickly" following the recent uncertainty over the 2012 US Grand Prix contract.

"Buildings are starting to take shape," wrote Dave Doolittle after a tour of the Texas site.

He said there are more than 360 workers at the site, including those working on the three-story main pit and paddock building where the outline of the podium "is already visible". Work on the media building and main grandstand has also begun, added the journalist.

"Officials said they expect to be finished on time for the inaugural race," said Doolittle, referring to the provisional mid November calendar date.

"They've got a lot of work to do, but all of the activity shows that they're working to meet that goal."
