Cracked vertebra rules Glock out

Cracked vertebra rules Glock out

11/10/09 10:12

It is doubtful Glock will race again this year
Timo Glock will not compete in the Brazilian Grand Prix due to injuries sustained in qualifying at Suzuka, Toyota has announced.

Glock was initially diagnosed with only a minor cut to his leg following his accident in qualifying for the Japanese Grand Prix, but according to the team, subsequent medical checks in Germany have revealed a cracked vertebra. Doctors have therefore ruled him out of this weekend's race. Kamui Kobayashi will replace him at Interlagos and a decision on Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will be made in due course.

"Obviously everyone in the team is very disappointed and feels for Timo; we wish him a very speedy recovery,” said team president John Howett. “Based on the initial diagnosis, we fully expected Timo to return in Brazil but unfortunately a different injury has been revealed which prevents that.
He will remain in Germany to recover and we hope he can recuperate in time for Abu Dhabi, although at this stage the situation is not clear.

"Kamui was the natural choice to step in and he proved in Suzuka that he is capable of holding his own. It is a difficult task for him but he knows the team will give him its complete support and we know he is motivated to make the most of this unexpected opportunity."
