Korean Grand Prix organisers have moved quickly to refute suggestions that its maiden Formula 1 race is in danger of cancellation due to fears that it is behind schedule in its construction, by telling us that the exact opposite is the case!

Which means that someone is telling a lie here!

We broke news of a report in Germany’s Focus magazine, which claimed that major problems existed with the construction of the Hermann Tilke designed circuit, located some 400km south of the Korean capital, Seoul.

Korea Auto Valley’s Operations CEO Yung Cho Chung told AUTOSPORT that construction is actually ahead of schedule and that there was no reason to be concerned.

"The construction progress for our circuit is well ahead of its schedule and we have absolutely no issues with completion," Cho Chung said.

"I understand that Mr. Ecclestone is quite happy with not only the progress of the track but the direction the Korean F1 race is headed and he has raised no questions and concerns."

Let’s wait and see on this one!
