Silverstone insists that work is on schedule on the pit and paddock complex which will be used for the 2011 British Grand Prix.

The new complex is due to be completed in May 2011 ahead of the race in July, with the circuit releasing a series of images showing the current state of the building work.

The new complex, being build between Club and Abbey, will replace the existing facilities for the F1 race although the old pits will remain in place for other events.

As well as new garages, the new complex currently being build includes a race control building, flexible conference and exhibition space, a new podium, media centre, hospitality and VIP spectator zones.

"We are on schedule to meet our self-imposed completion date of May, 2011," Silverstone circuits MD Richard Phillips said. "This pioneering development, and the redevelopment of Silverstone at large, will provide a world-class facility where all forms of motor sport can be celebrated in style - by competitors and spectators alike.

"As the iconic building on the circuit, the new pit, paddock and conference complex will reaffirm Silverstone's position as a premier racing destination and our status as a global leader."
