Glock braced for tough weekend in Montreal
9 June 2012 – Eight years ago, Timo Glock’s Grand Prix career began in dramatic fashion at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Then replacing Giorgio Pantano at Jordan, the German handsomely ended his maiden Formula 1 weekend in seventh position and ahead of his more experienced team-mate. Now with Marussia, the German is expecting a hard time this weekend.
“In FP2 we tried some setup changes again. I made a little mistake at Turn 1, when I had a bit of a spin. In general I think it is not our strongest track here, but we have to try to get on the top of the problems. Brake instability is still a problem here.
"The other teams are looking quite strong so I think we have a difficult weekend in front of us; now we have to work hard overnight to get the car in better shape and see what we can do tomorrow.”
In the second car, Charles Pic suffered a similarly difficult time as he completed the timesheets behind Narain Karthikeyan and in 24th place.
