Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has played down doubts over preparations for the inaugural Indian Grand Prix next month.

Ecclestone told The Associated Press on Saturday that "we're very happy, they're doing a good job." He spoke after reports this week of slow progress on construction of the Buddh circuit outside New Delhi.

The World Motor Sports Council met on Friday - ahead of Sunday's Singapore GP - and said it received a "positive" briefing from Indian race officials without elaborating.

Last year's Commonwealth Games in New Delhi were subject to severe delays and allegations of corruption but Ecclestone said "we aren't being corrupt and we are not trying to corrupt anybody, so no problems."

The India GP is on October 30.
