The opening South Korean Grand Prix may not take place in October as listed due to a wait in construction, according to reports in the German press. The German magazine Focus news that Formula One supreme Bernie Ecclestone travelled to the circuit in Yeongam after the conclusion of the Malaysian GP to view the condition for himself, before make a decision whether or not to cancel the event.

The 5.6km extended Korean International Circuit will allegedly not be finished in time for the GP which is scheduled for 24th October, leaving Ecclestone with the vision of being forced to decrease the current calendar from 19 races to 18.

The circuit was designed by the highly treasured Herman Tilke, but while Tilke’s company often oversees the construction of the circuit’s they design, Tilke is only involved in an optional capability on this time. For the first time I am worried that a (Tilke) circuit is not going to be finished on time, Tilke is quoted as telling Focus.
