That is the claim of the Delhi promoter Jaypee Sports, after a two-day inspection by FIA medical officials.

Last week, Charlie Whiting inspected the venue and indicated that progress is "more than satisfactory".

The Press Trust of India now reports that the homologation process has ended with an inspection led by the FIA's medical expert Jean Charles Piette.

"Getting these two certificates were important," said Jaypee's senior vice president Askari Zaidi. "We'll get both the certificates."
