Sep.25 (GMM) Two months before the venue's inaugural US Grand Prix, Charlie Whiting is in Austin to inspect the brand new Circuit of the Americas.

The Austin American Statesman newspaper reports that F1's race director, safety delegate and technical development chief must give Austin the nod "or there will be no" Grand Prix in mid November.

Whiting's first inspection of the bespoke circuit was in June, and he said afterwards: "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."
