Doubts over Korean GP

Doubts are starting to emerge over whether the new Korean Grand Prix will go ahead this season.

According to German magazine Focus, the circuit may not be completed in time for it’s F1 race debut on October 24.

The circuit, which is based in Yeongam, around 400 km south of the capital city of Seoul, is rumoured to have serious construction issues. Bernie Ecclestone is rumoured to have travelled to South Korea directly after the Malaysian Grand Prix to take stock of the situation. It is understood that he will soon decide whether the Korean GP will go ahead this season or not.

Should the Korean GP be removed from the 2010 Formula 1 calendar, it is understood that it will make it’s debut in 2011 instead and no race will take its place.
