Ecclestone admits doubts over Korea race

Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone expressed doubts Sunday over whether next month's Korean Grand Prix will go ahead.
Speaking at the Singapore Grand Prix, Ecclestone said he thought the race would proceed, but added that doubts will remain until the Yeongam track passes an upcoming FIA inspection.
"Until it's on there's always concerns obviously," Ecclestone told The Associated Press on Sunday. "We have to get lucky and hope it will happen."
The uncompleted Yeongam track was initially scheduled for an inspection on Sept. 21, but that was a holiday in Korea. FIA press officer Alexandra Schieren said the new inspection, by FIA technical delegate Charlie Whiting, will take place on Oct. 11.
Formula One cars are scheduled to take to the track for practice on Oct. 22, with the race set for Oct. 24.
