Mexico F1 renovations 90 percent complete

Mexico is right on track for its return to formula one this November.

The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, not seen on the F1 calendar since 1992, is currently being extensively renovated for its 2015 return.

The fabled and fearsome Peraltada corner has gone, but in a new visit to the site, the FIA's Charlie Whiting says he is happy with progress.

"I am impressed with the progress and quality of the work in general," he is quoted by Spain's El Mundo Deportivo.

"I was here barely a month ago and the progress is significant," Whiting added, saying he is "confident" the track will be ready for its November 1 race.

Another notable visitor to the track was FIA president Jean Todt, coinciding with the recent World Motor Sport Council meeting in Mexico City.

Christian Epp, in charge of the project on behalf of Hermann Tilke, was quoted as saying the reconstructed facility is now 75-90 per cent complete.
