Glock nearing recovery after missing Valencia
28 June 2012 – Timo Glock is en route to a full recovery from the intestinal infection which forced him to miss the European Grand Prix. After sitting out of qualifying, the German Marussia driver was not passed by medical officials to take part in Sunday’s race.
“Generally I am feeling much better,” he said on Thursday morning. “I still feel a little weak in the legs, but otherwise I am okay. It was obviously very disappointing that I was forced to miss the race in Valencia, but that is the way it goes sometimes.
“You cannot just ignore the symptoms I was experiencing. I am now on my way to a full recovery, although it will be a few more days before I am allowed to train again.”
Once he is fully recovered, Glock will be able to resume training.
“I am now looking forward to the forthcoming weeks,” the 30–year-old continues. “Included on the programme is my home race with my Marussia F1 Team, which means it will be a busy and demanding period with lots of events and activities. However, by then I should be totally fit again.”
As Glock’s absence in Valencia was not confirmed until just before qualifying, Marussia had to head into the 57-lap race with Charles Pic their only representative.
