Organisers of this year's revived Mexican Grand Prix have announced they are on course to bounce back into Formula One in November.

The country has been missing from the calendar since 1992, but the very same Hermanos Rodriguez circuit in Mexico City is currently being rejuvenated for its 2015 return.

"The demolition of the pits is finished," Christian Epp, a director working with F1 circuit designer Hermann Tilke's company, told the Spanish news agency EFE.

"We are halfway through the construction in that area and 60 per cent is ready," he revealed.

"In early March we will put down the asphalt, which is scheduled to be completed in late July," added Epp, who said work on the media centre begins next week.

"We are attacking the work on several fronts, it's going very well and we feel comfortable about the timeframe," he said, also revealing that Charlie Whiting visited the site in December.
