New photos reportedly depict an "alarming situation" at India's Buddh circuit just over a month before the inaugural Indian Grand Prix is scheduled to be held.

Spain's Marca sports newspaper published the photos that were reportedly taken days ago by a fan by the name of Parth Doshi.

The report said "the circuit is not only not complete but very far from it", with the situation "reminiscent of the one that occurred last year in Korea".

The photos show things like mounds of dirt sitting in the pitlane, unfinished main grandstands, un-asphalted sections of the pitlane and land around the circuit buildings, paddock and track verges that appear completely undeveloped.

Nevertheless, the FIA's Charlie Whiting visited the Delhi venue earlier this month and expressed "confidence that the inaugural Indian Grand Prix will be a huge success".
